Calling all Wordsmith Warriors! Norfolk Island’s 20th SCRABBLE festival needs YOU(23)

Do you worship at the throne of your OSPD(official scrabble players dictionary)? Relentlessly search for the ‘triple triple’ holy grail? Do you enthuse about ‘dinky’ words like they are your children? As a tile-carrying member of your tribe, it is your duty to attend this event.

Between 12 and 19 October there’s a week of half-day game sessions with internationally renowned adjudicators. Fill your days on this sub-tropical Island with tiles and tribulations whilst bathing in the beauty of your lush surroundings.

With your enemy JOUSTED(83), and  the clash of consonants and vowels fading, you can relax and choose between the many activities the island has to offer.  Whether you wish to kickback with a cocktail and chat about battles lost and won, or recharge your batteries with a game of golf, Norfolk Island delivers.

Find fun in the sun, FLUMMOX (108) your friends and SCOURGE (73) your enemies at the Norfolk Island SCRABBLE Festival.
