The Tel Aviv Scrabble® Club

Club Director: Evan Cohen

Season #18 - Playoff Mini-Tourney - 1/2/2008

Season #18 is officially over, as we reached an exciting end with our traditional mini-tournament.

Eight players from each division played a round-robin in two groups of four. Afterwards, two rounds of KOTH followed in each divisoin, no repeats allowed.

Evan took Aardvark, Ma'or close behind. In Zyzzyva, Maureen was queen, as Amos trailed by only 11 points. Since Maureen is already in Aardvark (she won the season), the second Aardvark spot goes to Amos. Welcome!

Words played:

Best Bingo: There were 64 bingoes played. Amos' NINETEEN was pretty, as were Liliane's ETATISMS and Omri's AIERIES. But the award goes to Ma'or's beautiful ENCOMIUM, the nicest word of the day. Well done!

Best Phoney: Eight monsters survived, three of them Nancy's... Evan got away with HEATAGE* and TURDING*. Maxine's unwary opponent let GRUNGILY* slip by and Naomi played the classic WILTERS*. And then came Nancy's. GOATIES* and CALSONE* went unchallenged, but the award goes to Nancy's COLGATES* which is the Phoniest Phoney.
