For newcomers to our club (not to tournaments or other NSA clubs),
we provide a few breaks. For newcomers the first four times that you attend:
A. Challenges: You will be allowed three free challenges,
per game, of your opponent's plays. You will not lose your turn if the word is acceptable. However, if you
play a word that your opponent challenges and the word is adjudicated as an acceptable play, you will lose your turn.
B. Word Lists: You will receive a copy of the 2- and
3- letter words. You can use this list during play. You make keep this list.
C. Time: If you are playing according to NSA rules,
you will be allowed five extra minutes on the clock. You will have thirty minutes while your opponent has only 25 minutes
(unless also a newcomer).
