Help Paul Rudd and John Oliver Cheat at Scrabble -- For Charity!

Scrabble for Cheaters: 826NYC is the annual charity Scrabble tournament hosted by 826NYC, the nonprofit based in Brooklyn where kids can get tutoring and help with their writing skills for free. But to fund their after-school programs, 826NYC has to raise money, and one of the more creative methods is their Scrabble for Cheaters tournament. The twist to this tournament, however, is in the players' ability to buy "cheats," such as trading out letters for $25, consulting the dictionary for $300, or inventing a word for $500. Indeed, the stakes are high but so are the bragging rights. In 2008, John Hodgman and teammate John Oliver got served by virtual nobodies, Davin and Elaine. Sarah Vowell moderated the round.

The Scrabble for Cheaters bracket can accommodate only 32 Scrabble pairs, you can still give to the cause by helping some of the more famous duos, Scrapple for Eaters (Paul Rudd and John Oliver) and Overall Wash (playwright Jonathan Marc Sherman and actor Peter Dinklage). All of the teams are soliciting donations. So help out! ... you know, for kids!
