826CHI Presents: The Scrabble tournament with a dishonest twist--for an honest cause.

On Saturday, January 31, teams of two will compete (in costume, with adult beverages in-hand) in an epic, day-long Scrabble tournament, wherein the alluring use of officially-sanctioned cheats is mixed with traditional brain power. Register your team today!

On Friday, January 9, we're hosting  "Scrappy Habble Hour;" an information session and Scrabble practice night boasting drinks, snacks, and nerdy word games. All registered teams are invited, as well as those who may be curious, but not yet committed. RSVP to Hayley@826chi.org today!
