Let your Mischievous Child
Out to Play.
Inside each of us is a mischievous child who seeks to unravel social norms and challenge traditional order. This impulse, at a mature age, is often repressed and controlled for the sake of personal and professional growth. As Scrabble Rousers, we seek to free our mischievous child through traditional and nontraditional Scrabble games. Our aim is to bring to light the importance of words in your life and in the lives of others.
We have designed this event so that it is accessible to everyone. Before we even start playing Scrabble we let people establish their skill level. Beginner, intermediate and expert. We aren’t interested in making people feel defeated by Scrabble sharks (although we love you too). Then we start playing nontraditional, shorter word based games (not Scrabble) that get peoples brains going and thinking about words. Then we split off into Scrabble pairs.
Our MC for the night will lead us through the games, occasionally interrupting us for “commercial breaks” which include, word exploration, dancing and interesting fact breaks about Tacoma Community House.
Entrance fee is only $10, and all proceeds directly benefit the Tacoma Community House Student Scholarship Fund, which assists students as they transfer from TCH to community college.
