Scrabble Hustle Details

Daniel Kroll March 1 at 10:49pm

7 checkpoints, one letter per checkpoint

Highest scoring word wins.
Race ends 45 minutes after first rider finishes.
Finishing involves assembling a word with as many letters from the checkpoints as the rider can use and putting that word down on the board.

1st rider to finish: triple word score
2nd rider to finish: double word score
3rd rider to finish: triple letter score (any one of the rider’s letters)
4th rider to finish: double letter score (any one of the rider’s letters)
Using seven letters for one word ‘bingo’: 50 points

All checkpoints are optional. Riders must have a word to finish, and all words must be in The National Scrabble Association's Official Tournament and Club Word List, Second Edition. Only letters that are used to form a word count toward scores. Only one letter can be used from each checkpoint.
