What Do I Do When I’m Not Playing?

This is why the Glendale Public Library is such a great location for us. We are located two blocks away from the Glendale Americana and three blocks away from the Glendale Galleria, so if you have shopping to do, the day of the tournament is the day to do it!

And if you’re hungry, we’re a short walk away from a litany of options:

In-N-Out Burger
Outback Steakhouse
Buffalo Wild Wings
California Pizza Kitchen
Olive Garden
Shake Shack
Yoshinoya
...and many more!

Of course, if you’re not eating or shopping or playing, you’re more than welcome to stay with us in the auditorium as a member of the audience for the tournament too. We’ll also have several photo albums with rare shots of Allen Ludden and Betty White on display in the back of the auditorium for everyone’s perusal throughout the day.


Rules of the tournament:

Teams will be randomly seeded into one of the Round Robin groups. Each team will have a chance to play three games during the hour. For each Round Robin group, the team with the best win-loss record advances to the final tournament. Of the remaining teams in that group, the team with the best total score over all three games will also advance to the final tournament.

Each game in the Round Robin competition will consist of ten passwords, with the point values doubled for the final two words.

Each game in the final tournament has a goal of 25 points, with the team that reaches that goal first winning and advancing. The finals match will go to a score of 50 points.


Rules of the game:

Password is a game of word communication played between two pairs of players. One member of each team sees the same Password, and they take turns giving clues, one at a time, until one of the partners correctly guesses the Password. Guessing a Password on the first clue is worth 10 points. Guessing on the second clue is worth 9 points. Guessing on the third clue is worth 8 points, etc. For each teams, the roles of clue-giver and guesser change with every Password.


Rules for clues and Passwords:
