Are readers better at scrabble?
>>
Readers may bring a large vocab, but Scrabble is ultimately a game and those who know the rules, who've played it more, and are clever, will win.

No, especially WWF. The game where people can get lucky and play "xu" and "xi" at the same time over a triple word score because they're testing out where to put their X.

Also, not /lit/.

I fucking suck at scrabble and I do nothing but read.
Bad brain I guess.

FUCK WORDS


I'm in such a fug tavern

fuck this game

it's consuming my sister

actually the top scrabble players have basically zero need to know words or definitions. top level scrabble is all about memorizing combinations, and it's jsut a matter of recalling what is a valid word or not.

>Top players tend not to be novelists or poets, but more often computer programmers or mathematicians.

the best player in the world won a french scrabble tournament - he doesn't need to know meanings just combinations of letters that are considered legal.

This. I always get destroyed in Scrabble by all those ridiculous """"""words""""" in the official Scrabble dictionary that experienced players memorize. Best game I've ever played was actually one where we did democratic challenges on words rather than using that blasted "dictionary"
