is a documentary on the cutthroat world of tournament Scrabble®.
Featuring the most fierce anagrammers, rack balancers, and bingo
experts in competitive Scrabble®, "Scrabylon" delves deep into this
sometimes wacky, sometimes odd, always compelling subculture. Shot
primarily during the World Scrabble® Championships in Las Vegas,
"Scrabylon" features players from around the globe and gives an
up-close look at why people get so obsessed with that seemingly benign
game played at countless kitchen tables.
is a dedicated community of people for whom SCRABBLE is more than a
domestic nicety – it is an obsession. They devote years of their lives
to mental and physical preparation and travel the country – some
full-time – competing in cutthroat tournaments. The dictionary is
studied with religious devotion, each obscure word another weapon for

the HASBRO factory where sets are churned out like lemmings; Conor
O’Neill’s editing builds the intensity of a best-of-50 $1,000 marathon,
played to exhaustion by two main characters; Eye-catching graphics by
Cassidy Curtis and Mike Hackett visually illustrate the mental
gymnastics; Music by Thor Madsen of Wax Poetic (Norah Jones’ former
backup band) adds an up-tempo groove to the game play and a haunting
resonance to the darker moments.
