Philly Plays Scrabble Begins!

By Camille T. RSS Thu, October 1, 2009

Philly Plays Scrabble kicked off this morning when Philadelphia Deputy Police Commissioner Charlotte Council and Fire Commissioner Lloyd Ayers squared off for a friendly game of Scrabble in Parkway Central. Local students chimed in with strategies and help, and in the end Deputy Commissioner Council won.

Nice article from about the kick off tournament. Apparently in Scrabble, Harry Potter words like AUROR count!

I love scrabble. I didn't know there are scrabble competitions.
