Scrabble Freaks

Scrabble Freaks

by Lisa Dempster

A zine dedicated to Scrabble and the freaks who love it! It's more than just a bunch of wistful writing about doubles and triples. Scrabble Freaks actually examines all the tiny sub-phenomenons that Scrabble has spawned. Included are: A woman who's started her own tile bank where people can write in for specific tiles, the practice of constructing the "perfect" highest scoring Scrabble board, letter frequency in the English language vs. in the bag of tiles, and a bunch of other equally interesting stuff. Word nerds rejoice!
