This is Scrabble with a twist, as the competition features teams of two to four players collaborating over the same letter tray to try and out-score another team, according to a news release from Tahlia Chamberlain, director of Literacy Volunteers-Androscoggin.

Participants can either form a team or register as an individual and be matched with a team that needs a player. Those who are serious about their Scrabble skills are encouraged to register in the Pro division, while more relaxed players should choose the Social category.

Players collect pledges to benefit adult literacy services in Androscoggin County, and the top fundraisers have an array of prizes from which to choose.

Registration is required by Monday, April 24.
