NSF introduces ‘Scrabble in The Jungle’
The Nigerian Scrabble Federation says it is introducing a new level of scrabble tournament tagged ‘Scrabble in The Jungle’, which holds from Aug. 26 to 28.
The NSF said this in a statement made available to newsmen on Friday in Lagos.
The body said the tournament would involve a selection of eight top ranked players in the NSF.
It also said that the tournament would include four wildcard nominees, who would compete over 36 rounds of games.
According to the federation, the tournament will take place in a closed location where the nominees will be for three days.
“The 12 players would be kept in a boot-camp like arrangement in a controlled space, where the juggernauts will test their prowess against one another at a highly competitive level.
“The heavyweights will hunt for points on the boards with different strategies as they square up against one another in what has been described by many as a blockbuster showpiece,” the federation stated.
The body said that supporters would also be given the chance to adopt any of the players who they bet could go on to win the title and the grand prize money at the end of the show.
