Association of British Scrabble Players

Peak ratings


Q. Can a player's highest-ever rating be shown?

A. No. This information is not stored anywhere. A hypothetical investigator with large amounts of free time, patience and motivation could collate some information by analysing the hundreds of ratings postings I've made to UK-Scrabble back to September 2001.

However, this would give incomplete data for the many current players who played rated games in the 1990s or earlier. In the days before ratings were regularly shown on the Internet, the only sources of ratings information were the two-monthly snapshots appearing in the ABSP publication The Last Word and its predecessor, the APSP Newsletter. There is no record of higher ratings achieved by players between each issue of the magazine.
