In the words listed, lowercase letters stand for blanks and paranthesised letters stand for tiles already on the board.  An asterisk (*) means that the word is a phoney or that the score is known to include phoneys.  An octothorp (#) means that the word is acceptable in CSW but not in NWL.

A question mark means that some detail of the record is unknown or questionable.  All records are subject to revision as appropriate.  Any scoring and score reporting errors are corrected before considering a play or game for a record, regardless of whether such errors were corrected in tournament standings or not.

Latest revision as of 12:22, 12 September 2019

This page lists various official sanctioned records achieved in competitive SCRABBLE® play in North America and overseas.

The records in each category are classified further based on the environment (tournament or club) and by the dictionary used (NWL or CSW, ignoring the specific edition).

In the words listed, lowercase letters stand for blanks and paranthesised letters stand for tiles already on the board. An asterisk (*) means that the word is a phoney or that the score is known to include phoneys. An octothorp (#) means that the word is acceptable in CSW but not in NWL.

A question mark means that some detail of the record is unknown or questionable. All records are subject to revision as appropriate. Any scoring and score reporting errors are corrected before considering a play or game for a record, regardless of whether such errors were corrected in tournament standings or not.

To submit a new record, please provide all available documentation for the record to the Ratings and Recognition Committee's record admin.
