I'm not playing that much English Scrabble. None even.

Anyone got any tips on where to play?

Lisa,

Thanks for your query. Of course, if there is a small odd number of players so that players have to sit out multiple rounds then I understand that this would be far from ideal. Let's hope for 14 players :)

If there is an uneven number of players then I think that the player that is lowest in the standings of all the players that have had the fewest number of "byes (fri ronder)" would be given the bye. This would mean that the byes would "climb up" the standings list and then start again from the bottom once everyone has had a bye. However, I would also want to exclude anyone that could win a prize (i.e. top three places) from getting a bye in the final round.

I hope this seems reasonable.

Marc

Gunnar,

Thanks for contacting your contacts about the tournament. It would be lovely if anyone could come from another country.
I have now also announced the tournament on the Yahoo Groups "uk-scrabble" and "world-scrabble" on the off-chance that anyone wishes to and can come.

Marc

I won't be able to play the Tea Cup tournament and I tried to avanmäla myself but it doesn't seem to work. I hope this won't cause to much trouble.

Thanks Gustaf again for the help.

Now that Henrik has dropped out we are down to 5 registered players, so it would be nice if another player joined us; so please do, don't be shy.

I have already ordered prizes, found sufficient tables and chairs, found out the phone number of the local pizza place, positioned the vacuum cleaner ready for use and even poked around on Zyzzyva a little (I haven't yet bought the tea - it's next on my list). However, I only have only one set of smooth tiles and two non-rotatable boards and one old-fashioned chess clock, so it would be lovely if somebody could bring or allow me to come and collect the required playing items. Also, I would be very grateful if somebody can bring the required computer program (and knowhow ;)) for registering scores and the like.

I hope to see you on Saturday,
Marc

We can bring two sets of smooth tiles.

You can find instructions for how to download programs here.

In the event that we have a tournament with 5 players then I would propose that we change the playing format to triple round robin with predetermined draw. A predetermined draw would speed up proceedings, allowing an extra round to be played (perhaps on Saturday (perhaps the tournament could also start perhaps 30 minutes earlier as well)). Each player would get a label from 1 to 5 and then the playing schedule would be:
Rounds 1, 6, 11: 1 vs 2. 3 vs 4.
Rounds 2, 7, 12: 1 vs 3. 2 vs 5.
Rounds 3, 8, 13: 4 vs 1. 5 vs 3.
Rounds 4, 9, 14: 5 vs 1. 2 vs 4.
Rounds 5, 10, 15: 3 vs 2. 4 vs 5.
Please let me know if you have strong feelings about any arrangements.

Also, five beds are still available at my house. If you wish to stay overnight please let me know in advance :)

Hi, sounds fine to me. And I would be gratefil for one of the five beds. I also hope there will be more players. I'm easy to beat, so don't hesitate! I'll be happy if I have the two letter-words in order till Saturday... But still looking forward towards a fun weekend.

I have tiles, rotatable boards and digital clocks galore! Relatively speaking among us, at least... :) Can you pick up stuff at my place some evening this week? Otherwise I can bring the stuff on Saturday, but the big boards are a bit heavy and awkward to carry by hand, better by car, if possible. (I have one small rotatable board with English text, and a couple with French text as well.) I also have leftover soft drinks, muffins and cookies from Stockholm's local championship that need to be consumed.
I hope a few more could show up this weekend! /Greger

Lisa: I have reserved a bed for you. Welcome. I'm not on top Scrabble form either. Good luck with the twos :)
Greger: Thanks for the kind offers. I could come by your place and collect the stuff; however, I won't be driving so I would like to wait and see how many boards we need before picking them up. Is it OK if I come by on Friday afternoon (17.45 at the latest)?

Thanks, Marc! For reasons beyond my control, I may not be home even near that time on Friday. But I think we can manage anyway equipment-wise.

I'll bring two or three digital clocks, my small rotatable Mattel-type board, and a couple of sets of Mattel tiles that fit on it. Hopefully I can manage to bring some cookies as well. Maybe Gunnar can bring his small rotatable board too?

Also: We'd all be very happy if one more player could join us this weekend! We'd have even pairs and the right to award qualification points for the 2013 World Scrabble Championship. /Greger

The main reason i havn't decided on registrating yet is that it would be difficult for me to attend on sunday. I would really like to join, and i think it would be a shame if you don't get a sixth player, so i have a suggestion, but i don't know if it's completley unacceptable. I could come and play all rounds on saturday and then, i'm afraid, leave walkover on sunday. That way atleast there is no free round on saturday, and the tournament still maybe gets the abillity to give qualification points? Like i said, i don't know if this acceptable or not, but you can tell me what you think.

Hi Marc

We are a bit late in our request, but is there a possibility that Gunnar and I can take two beds?
We bring our own sheets. See you in a while.

Thanks again for hosting the tournament, and cheers for winning!

I noticed a minor error in one of my bingos, (UN)LOADERS was really (UN)LOADERs.
