Charles Tachie-Menson Gears Up for Scrabble Showdown

Posted : 22 May 2024

One of Ghana's most prominent scrabble exports, Charles Tachie-Menson, is gearing up for the intense challenge at Kofi Acquah's Scrabble Birthday Bash Tournament this weekend, set to take place at Wan-Shi Gardens in Accra, the capital city of Ghana. Tachie-Menson expressed his readiness for the tournament in an interview, highlighting the event's significance in honoring and celebrating the passionate scrabble player and supporter, Kofi Acquah.


With over 40 players participating, the competition serves as a crucial platform for players to prepare for the upcoming African Scrabble Championship scheduled for October in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Currently ranked 16th on the continent, Charles Tachie-Menson emphasized his preparedness for the showdown on May 25th, where top wordsmiths from Ghana will gather to showcase their skills and word power on the board.


Asserting his sharpness and readiness for the competition, Tachie-Menson, ranked 56th by the World English Scrabble Players Association (WESPA), affirmed his determination to challenge any opponent, aiming to dominate the tournament. Notably, he stands as the only Ghanaian within the top 60 ratings globally.


Tachie-Menson's impressive track record includes an 8th-place finish at the last World Championship in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA, where he recorded 21 wins and 11 defeats with a cumulative points tally of plus 956, marking the second-best result by an African after Nigeria's Wellington Jighere's 4th position.


To clinch the top spot at the one-day tournament, Tachie-Menson faces formidable opponents such as Stanley Ubiedi, George Oddo, Kojo Acheampong, Kwame Adjei, Edwin Boama, and Sani Huzeru, alongside other passionate scrabble players. Experienced tournament director Banda Abdalah, supported by Carlos Otto, ensures a smooth event comprising nine rounds of games, with the 2021 Collins Scrabble Word Dictionary as the reference material.


With the tournament aligned as part of the celebrations marking Kofi Acquah's 40th birthday, it receives support from the Scrabble Association of Ghana (SCAG), led by Haruna Adamu, and the Pan African Scrabble Association (PANASA), revitalized by Adekoyejo Adegbesan and his team. Additionally, the tournament serves as valuable preparation for Team Ghana members gearing up for the West African Scrabble Championship (WASC) and the African Scrabble Championship slated for Sierra Leone in October.
