Weekend Scrabble Tournament

Dozens competed for the last word this weekend, in a Scrabble showdown.

The 8th annual A-1 Autumn Leaves tournament was held in Asheville.

More than 70 serious "Scrabblers" represented 15 states.  The focused participants used chess-clocks with software serving as word-judges.  It's a popular event for all ages.

Jacob Cohen, tournament director, "the fun is because you love the game you love words you love competing you love the strategy."

The number-one Scrabble player in North America participated in the tournament.

Winners received cash prizes and handcrafted clipboards.
