Welcome to the Wollongong Order of Really Dedicated Scrabblers website.
Please click on the Guestbook image let us know what you think about our content. We have added a lot of new articles since the last comment was made in our guestbook - so we'd really like to know if we are heading in the right direction. Certainly the consensus game is attracting more interaction but we'd like to know if there are other ways we might improve our content.

We lost our first consensus game to Quackle. This is an experimental concept designed for us to share our thoughts during a live Scrabble game against the toughest computer player that Quackle can muster. Check out our Move 12. You will find there some post-game analyses.
Natalie wins B division in Ulladulla
Our ever president Natalie enjoyed a lovely weekend by claiming 10 wins and 55 rating points from 14 exciting games. The final round matched her with local Alison Pollard to play off for first place. Janine finished 7th after being in the running at the end of day 1 but got the High Game of 478 and 11 rating points.
Graeme grabbed 3rd place in A division after leading the field, along with Natalie, on the first day. He finished with 10 wins behind Michael McKenna and Joanne Craig and was happy to regain 65 rating points. He also got the High Game of 581 points against Canberran Owen Randall that included the very satisfying ZEMSTVO for 113 points. Kerry Constable and Rene Chelton finished 8th and 9th, with both gaining points. Kerry managed to derail Graeme's good 7-win streak that included wins against Joanne Craig and Richard Jeremy with a 3 bingos to 2 victory.
Rene, Natalie, Janine, Kerry and Graeme upheld the WORDS tradition by singing their WORDS Winter Tournament invitation to the to a captive audience. Graeme accompanied the rendition with his banjo uke to the tune of "You Are My Sunshine".
