Scrabble contest

Recommended Posts

Due to the amount of effort required to get the scoring database set up and acquiring the prizes for a contest, there just isn't enough interest, so we will drop the whole idea at this point. If someone else want to run a contest, we will be glad to offer tips based on our previous contests.

 

Sorry, folks, but there just are not enough interested people at this time.

Sorry to hear, John. Would making scoring easier help at all?

The scoring isn't the problem. Setting up the database to conform to the use of the letters and the words made is what will take the most time and effort. Then the hard part is acquiring some prizes. It is very difficult to get donations when there is not enough interest to draw more than 9 or 10 people and we just don't have the time or energy or desire, to spend, to convince someone to donate a prize for such a small group of people.

 

We thought everyone knew how to play Scrabble and would be able to make quite a few words using benchmarks they haven't yet recovered, but I guess we were wrong about people enjoying a good game of Scrabble.

 

Maybe we can come up with another idea sometime down the road.

We are sad. However, we understand. Thanks for attempting this.

 

If this comes up again, we would be glad to donate one of the prizes.
