If young Scrabble fans can’t make it to see the championship in person, they can livestream the event on the Scrabble Twitch channel from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 1, and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Sunday, April 2. The Twitch stream will feature expert commentary, player interviews, and more!

Scrabble is available at most major retailers, so kids can even get in on the tournament fun at home with a game or two of their own!
