The non-profit group 826NYC is throwing a “Scrabble for Cheaters” tournament on April 21, 2012 to help support their free programs for NYC public school students. Peter Dinklage will be participating with Jonathan Marc Sherman (a friend and colleague since Bennington College) on their team Overall Wash.
This is not your typical Scrabble game. This game is for cheaters! And you can help Overall Wash cheat their way to the top by making a donation, which funds the 826NYC organization’s creative & educational programs. Help Peter & Jonathan “invent a word” on the spot, add points to any tile, and even “Surf the ‘Net” to knock the opposing team out of the tournament using the cash you donate.
“On April 21st, join Peter Dinklage, John Hodgman, Jonathan Marc Sherman, and Michael Showalter for Scrabble for Cheaters 2012, an elimination scrabble tournament, where you and a teammate play against other teams to compete for the coveted Cheater’s Cup.”
The 5th Annual Scrabble for Cheaters will be held at 12PM Saturday, April 21st
at 826NYC HQ: 372 5th Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn, NYC.
