October Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

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.

March Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to OGR8 for winning our March Tournament.

Firstly , let me congratulate Becky who helped make this Final the best contest . She is a great player and a very gracious person The result was in doubt, turn to turn .
I’ve been playing WWF since 2011 and as long on this site. I’ve played scrabble since age 5 and I’m know to be a walking dictionary ( not sure that’s a good thing ). When I’m not playing this game I’m running a large Joinery business in Sydney , Australia. This game is a wonderful outlet for me outside of work.
Thank you to all of my good friends I’ve made on this site , Jacob, Will , Dave ( Sec of Bev) Larry , Annie and Beckie of course . You make playing fun and playing you guys has made me a better player as you regularly trounce me.
Last and not least , Debby thank you for all you do for us and operating this site . Awesome !

February Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to soonerself for winning our February Monthly Tournament.

Even though I play in the daily and every monthly, my last win in the monthly was over three years ago, and that followed a two year gap from my previous win. That just shows how tough it is to win the monthly. More importantly, it proves how important good tiles are in the games when good players match up. My semifinal and final wins were come from behind wins because I had better tiles in my final rack. Jacob is a great player, but the tiles were with me in both games.

I’m 44 and a happily married father of two girls – one a teenager and one on the verge of becoming one. My life revolves around God and my family, with some friends and hobbies sprinkled in…oh, and work. I graduated several years ago from GA Tech, but I grew up an Oklahoma Sooners fan (hence SoonerSelf) and I try to attend a couple games each year. I love watching and playing sports, and I play basketball a couple times a week and run a few times a week as well. I also love to travel with my wife and family.

A friend introduced me to WWF in March 2011 and playing the one or two games at a time with him was not nearly enough. I found this site and have been consistent ever since. WWF is the only game I play on any platform, and I’m very appreciative of the players, this site, and the work Debby/Don do to keep it running. Good luck to all in March.

December Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to lwb2012 for winning the December Monthly Tournament. Here is his bio:

Over a year since I won the Monthly. Shout out to all the regulars that make winning such a challenge. The Tile Fairy was watching over me in the Championship round against Ozguff. Graeme is a class act.

As for me, I am a 77 year old man and former Engineering Director of the Navy Department now retired. My office provided facilities and equipment required to repair, overhaul and modify Navy aircraft, missiles, engines, avionics and components. I have been married for 48 years, father of 3, grandfather of 5, great grandfather of 1. My wife and I enjoy traveling and have been on 68 cruises. Life is good..

I was introduced to Scrabble in the 60’s and started playing WWF in 2012. I joined www.net in December 2012 and tried to play in each daily and monthly tourney to hone my skills. It was the best thing that I did as the skill level here is unmatched. I learned something in each game I played. To all the players here, you have my deep appreciation and thanks.

November Monthly Champion

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to VivaciousVicks for winning our November Monthly Tournament. Here is her bio:

Hello to all my WWF colleagues from the Philippines!

I am a self employed wife and a mother of two kids. My husband is a private nurse and my kids are 15 and 7 years of age, boy and girl, both studying. I love baking cakes and pastries and mixing perfumes which later became my business.

Way back in my childhood days, I was always playing “Scrabble” with my uncles, aunties and older cousins. This was one of my favorite board games in our family aside from “Word Factory” and “Cluedo”. I was only 7 years old back then and the youngest in the family, but I remember defeating them all, most of the time, every time we gather in my grandma’s big house and play those stuffs. Thanks to the makers of this very nice game “WWF” and the administrators of this tournament for giving us so much fun and enjoyment, at the same time, very challenging playing moments everyday.

Winning this November Monthly Tourney means a lot to me! This event brought me lots of memories 39 years ago!

Thank so much to all my friends here in “WWF” tournament!!!
