May Monthly Champion

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to WascallyWabbit for winning the May Monthly Tournament. Nice to see a long time member win this month. Here is info about Anne.

Thank you, Debby, for hosting this tourney site.  It has provided us countless hours of mental stimulation!  I have played on this site for several years now and this is the first time I have come this far.  I must thank my mentors, Benjamin Green and James Chia, who have taught me how to play a more strategic game. It has been a pleasure to engage many bright minds and interesting personalities through playing this game, many of whom I have met in person in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Sydney and Singapore!

My mother instilled a love for games in us as kids.  We played card games, Scrabble and the usual board games. I love all kinds of word games: Password, Taboo, Guesstures, Catchphrase, Boggle.   I would love to get together with other players in this community to play some of these games together!

Apart from whiling my life away playing games I enjoy reading and traveling.  Life is short.

“Live well, Laugh often, and Love with all your heart!”

December Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congrats to Milmead for winning our December Monthly Tournament. And it was her birthday too! Happy Birthday. Here is her bio:

This must be like attending the Oscars. Do you have a speech prepared or just go up there blind and say what comes straight from the heart? Sean and I went into the finals as 2 unranked outsiders so there was no pressure and we just hit it off immediately and the first couple of games were full of chat and humour. With one each under our belts and neither expecting to win it could not have been more relaxed. Up til the final rack I was ahead by over 100 but complacency allowed Sean to place his bingo and run out! I had quite a handful of costly tiles but was fortunate enough to have a good enough lead to still take the match and the trophy! Sean you were a true gentle man to the end and I thank you for it. I have over the past couple of years bored most of you with my background. A 68 year old retired grandma from the north of England with a love of Scrabble. I was brought up on a diet of grammar and words. Crosswords of the ilk of Ximenes and scrabble conundrums were staple diet at our breakfast table. I was never taught to clean by my mother but how to study the whole board. So when I was introduced to this site I took to it readily. Thank you one and all for your patience, kindness and intellect. I never imagined winning a tourney but with the good fortune of a comfortable path to wend along the prize slowly became a reality. Debby you are a total star and I thank you for providing us with such great tourneys each month. You have battled tirelessly to keep things up and running and it doesn’t go unnoticed! What a brilliant birthday present and like most Oscar speeches I have rambled too long. One very happy old lady

October Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to SoonerSelf for winning the October Monthy Tournament. Here is his bio:

Hi everyone.  I’m Adam from outside of Atlanta, GA.  A friend introduced me to WWF back in 2011. After playing him and some random opponents for a while, I wanted more games and some additional challenges. I found this site in early 2012 and, along with it, tougher competition.  Just when I thought I had a grasp of the English language, along comes a strong competitor in the Daily or Monthly to humble me with some new word (in many cases a bingo) that I’ve never seen, but hope to use again in the future.  WWF is the only game that I consistently play on my phone.  Other than games against that same friend, I mainly rely on this site as a source of competitors.  As GuySavior (Samuel) said a few months back, you don’t realize how much you’re addicted until you forget to update a score in the Daily and realize you don’t have an opponent for a day.  While I’ve won the Daily a few times over the years, this was my first Monthly win.  Thanks to the opponents this month, especially Brendan and Ike, as either match could’ve easily gone the other way.  Special thanks to Debby for keeping the site going! Boomer Sooner!

September Monthly Winner

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to PSYCHOHOGFAN for winning our September Monthly Tournament. Here is his bio:

Hey guys, I’m Chad from Arkansas. Just some background on me,

I grew up watching my mother, grandmother, and aunt playing scrabble. Being younger I would soak up all I could and took my share of losses, but in the process it taught me how to play the game. If I learned anything, it’s that no matter how good you may think you are, luck always plays its part in the game. Thanks to all the great competitors out there that certainly challenged me to the end. I’ve learned so many new words playing this game and it’s amazing how most of these games literally come down to the last letter. Shout out to admin for keeping this site up and running. You do a great job. Thanks! Go Hogs!!!”</p

And the Winner is…..

By Debbyoc

Congratulations to scabblejon for being our August Monthly winner. He even had to go through me to make it to the finals! lol Here is his bio:

Hello everyone.  I’m Jon, in Plano Texas.  Firstly, thanks to Debby and Don for keeping this site going-you guys are awesome.  I’ve met so many great players by playing in the dailies and monthlies.   I could have lost any one of the seven matches en route to the title.  It takes very good tiles, luck, and patience to win one of these. I’ve been playing WWF for about 4 years, and never did I imagine that I would win a tournament.  Special thanks to Pittsburghkid87 for giving me tips on strategy and tile management.  He’s helped me beef up my game.  Thanks again to all the players and admins!  Till next time ✌️.
