Word Freaks United!

If your a word game addict such as myself, then "Scrabylon" is an interesting view into the competitive world of Scrabble players and tournaments.

It mostly consists of interviews with the top rated players in the nation....and their thoughts and strategies on the game.

It also gives a nice look into the tournament scene, and provides a little background on the history of the game.

Not a whole lot here to make a movie about - but it is a nice look at an interesting subculture

Recommended for word freaks only!!
