Come to join us every week to enjoy a couple games of Scrabble and feel free to bring a few friends. We always have at least five boards available to be played each session.

Keep your Scrabble skills from becoming rusty because we plan on traveling to the National and intercollegiate competitions when that time rolls around. To brush up on your Scrabble Strategy check out our Strategy page!

The Michigan Scrabble Club is more than a fun weekly activity or a venue to show off one's knowledge of vowel-less words (cwm: a deep steep-walled basin on a mountain, for example). Rather it is a synergic mix of word freaks....

We meet for comradeship, no doubt, and treasure each other's company, but little beats the joy of throwing down "catapult" across a triple word score. Of course, we feed off of each other; I can use that last "t" in "catapult" to play "quirt" (to strike with a whip) and get rid of the dreaded "q." It is a passion for the linguistic oddity, the beauty of anagramming and the excitement for friendly competition that marks the Scrabble Club and it is a mark that we are proud to bear.
