If Peter Dinklage, who stars as the beguiling Tyrion Lannister on Game of Thrones, has picked up even a fraction of Tyrion’s craftiness, then the contestants in the sixth annual Scrabble for Cheaters better watch their backs. Today, create a team of two and join Dinklage and special guests John Hodgman, Michael Showalter, A.C. Newman, Jonathan Marc Sherman, and David Rees at this annual fundraiser for 826NYC, the Dave Eggers–founded writing program for children. The advantage goes to the team that has raised the most money to spend on cheats (which include “Invent a Word,” “Buy a Vowel,” and “Surf the ’Net”). Good luck!
