Product Description

Product Description

Inside this little book lie the secrets of Britain’s only ever Scrabble World Champion.

Scrabble is played by millions but mastered by very few and unless you’re a Scrabble player who likes to lose, this book is a must. In it Mark Nyman spells out the most useful two letter words, what to do when you have a case of irritable vowel syndrome, strategies for how to get off to a flying start and lists our language’s strangest and most unbelievably useful words. Between these golden tips come anecdotes and words of wisdom from a lifetime at the top.

At the age of sixteen Mark appeared on Countdown and a year later became the show’s first ever Champion of Champions. In 1993 Mark won the World Scrabble Championship and remains the only British person to have done so.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top Marks for Mark! 9 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
I've played scrabble for forty years and still have very much to learn. Mark's little book is a mine of information and help. I love the way in which it is presented, amusing and instructive at the same time. Highly recommended to anyone who has a love of the game and also to those just dabbling their feet

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential for every Scrabble player. 6 Jan 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It's full of interesting stuff but the real value is at the end with definitive lists of two and three letter words. Better quality than most Scrabble reference books and recommended without reservation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Small and pricey
The contents of the book are quite interesting but it is small and not very good value. I passed mine once I had read it as it didn't seem worth keeping.

Doesn't matter which one you buy. All the words the computer uses are not in it. Not worth paper printed on
