Scrabble Championship documentary

so if any of you out there are really into scrabble or the scrabble national championship, you may like WORD WARS!!!! Word Wars is a documentary that follows six contestants in the 2007 Scrabble National Champion and it pretty much documents their crazy study habits and lifestyles that they devote completely to this game. i saw it tonight with some people that i live with and it was pretty dope. the filmmaker was not there for any Q&A, though. one of the guys that was a part of the competition actually took a vitamin cocktail everyday for his brain and another dude would meditate all the time and it was pretty creepy. another guy would also practice reading his word cards while driving. i thought that was pretty fuctup. anyways. its awesome. check it out

Nice. That's what I'm talking about right there. I'll have to check that one out, it'll probably help me with my Speech & Debate Docu.

SOunds similar to Spellbound and the crossword puzzle doc. But a good niche audience of Scrabble freaks will be sure to buy the DVD.
