October Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to PSYCH0H0GFAN for winning the October Monthly Tournament. Here is his bio:

My name is Chad and I’m from Arkansas (Go Hogs!). I work as a professional firefighter, and enjoy my career very much. Being able to go to work each day and help those in need is very rewarding. I have been playing this game for around 10 years, but grew up playing scrabble, so that’s when I got hooked. I thought I knew a lot about this game until I started playing against many of the players on this site. Most of these players are outstanding and are great competitors. I have truly learned a lot from these matches, even when I lose. Thanks to a Debby for keeping this site going and allowing us to participate. I also want to say thanks to all the players for the sportsmanship displayed on here. It makes the matches even more enjoyable and interesting. I look forward to the competition!

September Monthly Tournament winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to Tee252525 for winning our September Monthly Tournament. Here is her bio:

Hi All,

I’m Teresa (Tee252525) from England based just outside London near the 2012 Olympics venue.

I have been a member here since 2011 and this is the first time I have won proving Perseverance Pays Off!

I enjoy most of the game especially chatting to opponents from around the globe, the time difference does prove a challenge at times with many a move made at 3am when a deadline is approaching.

I work in commercial banking which has been ‘interesting’ this year….

I live with my hubby and my passions are sport and travel.

Thanks to Debby for all her efforts and keeping us going, here’s to many more battles and high scores.

Congrats to OGR8 in winning our July Monthly Tournament. Here is his bio:

Hi, I’m Len (OGR8) from Australia, happy to say we’re surviving down here in this crazy world and wish all my friends on this site the best health.

Once more I’ve been lucky enough to win a monthly tournament playing against some of the best players in the world. I would like to thank each of my opponents along the way. You made my life both hell and fun at various intervals. To Tracy who I met in the final, thank you and I know that your turn is around the corner.

Again to Debby, your efforts in helping us indulge our competitive streak is most appreciated.

Take care all.

Congratulations to our Monthly Tournament Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to Ik3662 for winning our June Monthly Tournament. Here is his bio:

Hi,

It’s been quite a feat to win a Monthly tournament. I have been a participant here for a few years. But I took a hiatus for quite a while due to my busy schedule. As we all know about the current pandemic, work schedules have become unconventional, leaving me to have more time to commit to a Monthly Tournament.

I am based in the UK and even though I have participated in previous tournaments, I have always been knocked out earlier than I wished (I think I have only ever made the finals once). So to win this either means I have upped my word skills or the competition isn’t as strong. But I truly believe it was down to my thinking more strategically – because right from the very 1st round, players gave me a real run for my money, so to speak.

Anyways, thanks again. And stay safe.

May Monthly Champion

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to Trueheartd for winning our May Monthly Tournament. Here is her bio:

Hello everyone! My name is Beckie and I’ve been playing on this site since 2011. During that time I’ve gotten to know several wonderful people through this game. I’ve gotten my butt best down many times by Debby, Larry and several others that no longer play here. There are too many people to list but each time I learn something new and dust myself off and keep playing. Debby is truly a tough opponent but I can honestly say that she is my favorite player on this site. (Thank you Beckie. Feeling is mutual). Thank you Debby for all that you do for this site.

I am a retired Army veteran (thank you for your service especially on this Memorial Weekend!) and a Navy brat so I’ve been to various places and have dabbled in a little bit of everything. My curious nature has given me the opportunity to pick up various trades that have come in handy later on.

This game has been a great platform for making friends and learning various different things about people, tons of useless words and that patience is definitely a virtue when you’re searching for that higher scoring word.

This game is/was a means to escape from the realities of the ugliness out there and meet some decent people. Please keep in mind that we don’t know what any players are going through at any given time so please be kind and polite to everyone. It doesn’t take too much effort to break someone down nor much effort to lift someone up. Please show some kindness and stay safe everyone.

April Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to Shelrose for winning our April Monthly Tournament. Here is her Bio:

Hi,

I’m Shelrose from Michigan. I’ve been playing WWF since 2009. I have enjoyed meeting and playing so many great and kind people. I have improved over the years because of the competition.

This is my first monthly tournament win. I understand why it’s so difficult to get passed round 4, let alone the finals. The quality of competition is world class.

Thank you to Larry my finals opponent. Getting passed Larry was a thrill. He is definitely one of the best! A shout out to a couple of my buds; Submariner and Len. Great gentlemen!

Thank you so much Debby for keeping this site running strongly!

To everyone, stay healthy and see ya in May.

October Monthly Winner

Congratulations to OGR8 on winning the October Monthly Tournament. Here is his bio:

Hi, I’m Len Bober from Sydney, Australia. I’ve been playing this game for almost a decade now and still enjoy the daily battles. I’m also an avid scrabbler which helps me no end.

Winning my second Monthly Tournament this year was both a thrill and surprise. The level of competition is very high and any number of people are capable of winning. Luck and skill play a role sometimes.

To the great opponents I played on my run, thanks for the good humored battles. Shout out to my good friends Shelrose and Marilyn who are champions. You’ve helped me become a better player strategically. Debby, again, thank you for providing the platform for us to compete on. It’s really appreciated.

August Monthly Tournament Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to Milmead for winning our August Monthly Tournament. Here is her Bio:

This is my third monthly win on this site! I cannot remember when I joined but it must be at least 6/7 years ago! (January 2012 according to our records). I found it through a deep trolling on Google for Scrabble tourneys! Previously I had had some luck in other online tourneys where sore losers kept asking me questions about how I had learnt to play so well and which other tourneys I played in and what were my other user names? They became offensive when I explained I didn’t and I haven’t. Long story short I found Debby and all of you. Larry (?) gave me some initial hints one of which was try to join two short words together and generally helped me along! You were all so welcoming and my confidence grew within a few months.

I usually get knocked out in the first couple of rounds but who cares it’s always fun!

I found great folk who sometimes chat and we get to know one another. Some are silent and thank the Lord only a few crotchety ones! After a couple of years playing someone let slip I was referred to as “the old English lady”! I can cope with that!

Long may these tournaments run and totally gratitude to Debby who through trials and tribulations always delivers each month!

Thanks to Jacob for 2 incredible games and great chat as always!

Love you all

Marilyn aka the old English lady!

May Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to trueheartd for winning our May Monthly tournament. I have had the pleasure of meeting her! Here is her bio:

Many thanks to Debby for running this site and keeping it fun. The hours you put in to keep this site going is not unnoticed. I appreciate your time and effort.

I am a retired Army veteran and a Navy brat so I’ve been to various places and have dabbed in a little bit of everything. My curious nature has given me the opportunity to pick up various trades that has come in handy later on.

I’ve been playing WWF since 2011 and stumbled upon this site around the same time. This game has been a great platform for making friends and learning various different things about people, tons of useless words and that patience is definitely a virtue when you’re searching for that higher scoring word.

Thank you Chad for the exciting games we played. Getting to the finals is definitely not a walk in the park since there are many deserving and tough opponents out there.
