It’s the library’s first Scrabble Club.
In a world dominated by digital entertainment, the classic board game continues to captivate and educate players of all ages.
Before Wordle was even a thing, we used to spend hours (sometimes over a pint) playing games of Scrabble with our friends and family. Luckily for us verbomaniacs (12 letter word- that’s a person obsessed with words) the Cork City Library is hosting the first of their Scrabble series next month in the Grand Parade branch.
And it’s for adults.
Beyond its reputation as a retro pastime, Scrabble offers a multitude of benefits that actually extend far beyond the tabletop. By engaging in this wordplay extravaganza, players exercise their vocabulary, strategic thinking, and mental agility.
Scrabble also stimulates cognitive skills, enhances language proficiency, and fosters healthy competition, all while promoting social interaction.
If you’re in the city centre and gearing up to practice your word-forming skills, you can head to the monthly Scrabble club in the Cork City Library on Grand Parade from 3pm on the first Monday of every month, starting on Monday, June 12th.
