Thread: 24 Hour Scrabble World Record Attempt (in aid of Polio Plus)

    Yea we'd have beaten it by a good margin. Everyone is keen to do it again though, although I doubt there'll be the professional video set-up we had.

    Is there a Just Giving page?

    Yep, took me a bit of working out to find it - I think it got set up late and it isn't explained very well:

    Rotary Club of Paisley Trust Fund


    There's a bit more detail here:

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Paisl...69211376491684

    We are up and running with our live link to stream the Scrabble Challenge to you. You can donate online to The Rotary Club of Paisley, through JustGiving and your donation will be sent on to EndPolioNow, our main charity.

    All the best. A commendable effort but what is the deal with polio in North East England?

    Makes sense to have one charity that's more global in scope. I'm hoping for a lot of local interest and Daisy Chain is a very local community charity (if Chris Gayle got hold of one he could just about hit their buildings and farm from Norton's main cricket pitch), but there are obviously Scrabblers all over the planet and I can reach a lot of them. So both bases are covered.

    The tricky part is getting Mattel's Facebook Page to mention it - they have the best part of 4 million likes. If they plug the live stream we're sorted - as long it doesn't crash that is.

    Fair enough. Good luck with it. I hope the Scrabbling (is that correct?) community supports it. Good for you if you can get Mattel to promote the event

    Not enough screeching as a word is played in my opinion. If a yelp was let out like it is in women's tennis when a shot is played I'd tune in.

    UMU is Maori for an oven isn't it?

    It's all the bloody French words that get me. It's like we have practically their whole language included. This is the list of acceptable French words in English language Scrabble:

    ABSP - French

    I mean yea they probably use FROTTAGE/FROTTEUR in London because they're bunch of wankers. But ffs.
