This is the home of tournament and club Scrabble in Charleston, West Virginia — the Kanawha Valley Scrabble Club, or NASPA Club #620. We are the first and oldest Scrabble club in West Virginia, and we are part of the North American Scrabble Players Association. Our skill levels range from "I play pretty often" to some of the highest-rated players in the state. We are an informal group, we all enjoy a good game, and we welcome anyone who would like to play with us.
If you'd like to play, just show up at one of our meetings. There is no paperwork to fill out and no approval process — all are welcome. Your first two meetings are free, subsequent meetings incur a minimal cost (most of which is returned in prizes). If you have a Deluxe Scrabble Board, you are encouraged to bring it. If you don't have one, that's fine too — we usually have enough to go around.
We use official NASPA tournament rules at our meetings, which differ slightly from the rules that come with the game. Exceptions are made for newcomers during their two meeting trial period.
You are not required to join NASPA to become a member of our club, but we do encourage it strongly. NASPA membership is required, however, if you want to play in a sanctioned tournament. We have at least two tournaments per year and there are several to choose from in neighboring states.
See you soon
Thanks for stopping by our website. We hope to see you at one of our club meetings soon. Until then, happy tiling!
