The Scrabble game was created by Alfred Mosher Butts in 1938. It is a word game in which 2-4 players draw from a pool of 100 tiles and score points by placing tiles, each bearing a single letter, onto a gameboard which is divided into a 15×15 grid of squares. The tiles must form words which flow left to right in rows or downwards in columns.
Words played must be acceptable in specified dictionary reference which provides a list of officially permissible words. The English version currently has two dictionary references, TWL in North America and CSW (Collins) in the rest of the world. MGi will be adopting the CSW reference for all scrabble events.
There are thousands of active scrabble clubs across the globe and tournaments of different sizes are held every year.
MGi aims to organize several scrabble tournaments all year round for secondary school and university students Nigeria as well as professional players in Africa.
