Books on Hooks are now available!!

We have two new books for Scrabble players in North America and throughout the world. These books show the front and back hooks to all the valid words in their respective dictionaries. It is a fun way to learn hooks and easy way to pick out some odd and weird words from the crowd.

To our Canadian and international friends: We are not able to ship it outside the U.S. due to the insanely expensive cost of shipping via Postal Service. If you know a fellow Scrabbler who lives in the U.S., we can drop ship it to that person. The books are available at Amazon.com worldwide.

For players in North America who play the TWL (Tournament Word List) - aka OWL3 (Official Word List) at tournaments, we have the Happy Crossword Hooker (North American Edition). This book has over 213 pages of hooks. Available in perfect or coil binding. The cover may be different with the coil bound copy but the contents are exactly the same.
