Scrabble was originally developed in 1931 and was called Criss Cross because of its similarity to crossword puzzles. It was redesigned as Scrabble in 1948 and many believe it to be the best word gane there is. Our Group think so!
We get a boost from winning a game of course. Who is not a little competitive? But what we appreciate most is the playing of unusual words or clever little ‘fit-ins’. At the end of the afternoon our brains are tired.
Does this mean we are sharper too? We like to think so.

The group comprises ten members meeting every two weeks in Burnley Central Library where we lease a room for two hours. We are given facilities for making tea (essential). We learn new words, try to remember them and often fail. No matter, we enjoy the process

  
The Scrabble Group will meet on the 4th & 18th December and the 8th and 22nd January in Burnley Library at 2 pm.
