After last night’s inebriated adventurism and explosions, it’d be a good thing to sharpen the mental whetstone and feel like that smart, witty adult you are, yeah? Head on down to the 92 Y for a lesson in Scrabblenomics from a 30-year tournament veteran of the dictophilic game, Joe Edley (who is an expert consultant for the National Scrabble Association and has a separate Scrabble Master Class). Sure, the play-by-play will set you back a cool $29, but isn’t that a price worth paying to see your friends throw up their hands after you drop a 104-point monster on the triple-word score?
