Words With Famous Friends


On Saturday, 826NYC is hosting the Fifth Annual Scrabble for Cheaters , an elimination Scrabble tournament to benefit its great programs for the city’s public school students, at the Superhero Supply Shop. Teams of two raise money before the event to spend on “cheats” like “invent-a-word” and “buy a vowel” during the competition. This year, comedians John Hodgman and Michael Showalter, playwright Jonathan Mark Sherman, and Tyrion Lannister portrayer extraordinaire Peter Dinklage (!) will be entering the fray in the hopes of winning the illustrious Cheater’s Cup. Teams are required to pay a $50 registration fee and raise at least $200 for “cheats” in order to be eligible.
