The Portland Scrabble Club, Lucky Labrador Hawthorne Club and the Soku Sushi Clubs try to maximize fairness and try to keep games moving along at a reasonable pace. To do that, they use a game timer. This allows these clubs to get in about 4 games in a session. Each player gets 25 minutes to complete all of their moves (with a small penalty per minute if you go over). To some, it may sound intimidating, but when you get used to it (which usually only takes a week or two), you will find that a clock makes the games clearer (you know when your opponent has completed their move), more exciting, and allows more play in a session. To help newcomers learn how to use the timer, we don't penalize newcomers if they go overtime.
Note that you need to have played at least 4 games in sanctioned club style play (with a timer) to play in a local tournament.
