About Scrabble Rousers:
When Tacoma Community House pondered how it could raise funds and consciousness in a fun and entertaining way, SCRABBLE was an obvious solution. After a few months of planning, SCRABBLE Rousers was born. With three successful seasons under its belt, Tacoma Community House is hosting SCRABBLE Rousers Season 4 in hopes of freeing players from the shackles of their computer and playing SCRABBLE with real people. It doesn’t get more interactive than that.
Held every 3rd Wednesday of the Month!
Upcoming Event: Date: Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Location: King's Books
218 Saint Helens Avenue
Tacoma, WA 98402
All proceeds directly benefit the Tacoma Community House Student Scholarship Fund, which assists students as they transition from TCH to community or technical college.

SCRABBLE Rousers is open to people of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. Players identify themselves as a beginner, intermediate, or expert player to ensure fun will be had by all. Through our ongoing partnership with King’s Books, the legendary sweet pea will be the MC for the events. He will lead participants through warm-up activities, SCRABBLE games, and curious intermission activities such as a Texas-two-step lesson, open mic night, and futuristic flop trivia.
Meet Our MC:
"sweet pea once lost innumerable points in Scrabble because he absolutely needed to use the word “ichor” and nothing else would do. sweet pea is a bookseller at King’s Books in Tacoma where he coordinates Word Nerd events such as the annual Spelling Bee and SPITting (Smartest Person In Tacoma) Contest. In his spare time he studies kung fu."
