The uk-scrabble Mailing List

You can find lots of Scrabble chat, puzzles and humour on the uk-scrabble mailing list, open to anyone with an email address and especially welcoming to new players.

There are over 700 people on the list and there can be anywhere from 3 to 30 messages per day, sent either individually or in one daily digest (you choose which).

All tournament and inter-club match results are posted here, along with various people's reports from matches and events. Board positions, 'consensus' Scrabble games and puzzles also sometimes appear. Just enter your email address into the box below to subscribe!
