18 February 2013

A 162-page ebook on how to play Scrabble, written by 12 competitors from past World Scrabble Championships, is available now for free! "The Scrabble Player's Handbook" covers every aspect of the game's strategy, from dedicated word learning to the tactics used by the game's most dedicated tournament players. The book is being distributed for free as part of an effort to encourage people to play Scrabble face-to-face as a competitive activity, following on from the recent resurgence in popularity for the 65-year old board game classic as one of the most popular games played online by the younger generation.

The editor of The Scrabble Player's Handbook, Stewart Holden, said, "Tens of millions of people around the world are playing Scrabble and other word games on their smartphones and on Facebook every day. We're finding that with events like the UK Open Championships taking place in Coventry this week and offering prizemoney of over £10,000, people are pouring into clubs and tournaments like never before looking to pit their wits against others across the board. The Scrabble Player's Handbook is written by a dozen players from around the world who have all represented their country at the biennial World Scrabble Championships. It teaches everyone from beginner level upwards how to maximise their scoring potential on every turn and how to turn an online distraction into a serious competitive mind sport. The popularity of the book has shown there is a huge public appetite for Scrabble as more than a game to play with granny at Christmas. It's much more fun than that!"

The Scrabble Player's Handbook uses Scrabulizer software throughout and can be downloaded for free at
