I joined the Scrabble Tournament of Power Mac simply because I was curious as to how it goes. Do geeks abound and kill each other during the tournament? What do they do in events like this? Will there be a line of spelling bee wizards vying for the title? Will it be a standing room only thing?
Yep, those were the questions I had in mind when I signed up for this. As days to the tournament got to a close, I was apprehensive about pushing through. I thought, why bother? What will I get out of it? What will happen? I know I wasn't going to win. I didn't bother brushing up on my "skills" nor did I even do mock games. Zero preparation is what I had.
Saturday loomed and I was thinking of not going through with it. However, a friend agreed to meet up and I haven't seen him in 2 years so I went ahead because I had something to look forward to after the tournament.
|he won ... I had fun ... LOL|
Was it fun? I'd say it was something. Would I do it again? Most likely, not. Still, I'm happy that I gave it a try. I now have a fair idea of what happens on a scrabble tournament.
Basically, nothing. LOL.
