Usually in Scrabble, when you have terrible letters, you’re just plain out of luck. But, today, there’s a way to win: Scrabble for Cheaters, a fundraiser for 826NYC, the writing program for children. Try to beat special guests Peter Dinklage, Robin Wasserman, Jonathan Marc Sherman, and other worthy opponents by raising money to spend on cheats (these include “Invent a Word” and “Buy a Vowel”). Shake Shack custard, drinks, and other treats will keep your energy up. The savviest cheater of the day wins the coveted Cheater’s Cup.
