Hello everyone !
The French-speaking Scrabble world champion does not speak French!
New Zealander Nigel Richards became world champion in French-speaking Scrabble (he was already for English-speaking scrabble).
What is amazing is that this man does not speak French.
How did he manage to win this title despite his linguistic handicap?
Thanks to his impressive memory, Nigel Richards managed to learn in just nine weeks the official French-speaking Scrabble dictionary which contains over 380,000 words.
He has not learned the meaning of words, for him it is binary, words have only numerical value.
Good day and good game ;)
