Organizations and Clubs
"A site devoted to the world of competitive SCRABBLE®." This site lists all of the tournaments held throughout North America, and has a complete player and tournament database - enough information to keep you visiting again and again!
The North American SCRABBLE® Players Association website. Membership in this organization is required to play in tournaments.
Located in Romania, this site enables word-game enthusiasts from around the world to compete against each other or against computer opponents, any time of day or night. Free and premium membership options are available.
It wouldn't be right to omit the presence of SCRABBLE® on the world's largest Social Networking website. You can start games with your Facebook friends or be matched up against random players on the network.
This is an invaluable reference for beginner and journeymen players alike! It contains all valid two and three-letter-words that are playable in SCRABBLE®, as well as all two, three and four-letter-words that contain a J, Q, X or Z. Another section lists the two-letter-words in addition to their "Hooks" - showing which letters may be attached to the front or back of a two-letter-word to form a three-letter-word. Also included are two to five-letter vowel dumps (at least 75% vowels), as well as "I" and "U" dumps - a good way to play off these awkward letters. Finally, there is a full listing of three of the top "Bingo Stems"; high-probability racks of six letters that take a seventh letter to make a Bingo - good for an extra 50 points on your play if you clear your rack in one turn!
