All Scrabbled up 

John Dunsworth rocks the seven-letter scores.

Word up, Kelly

Perhaps the most surprising thing (besides Peter Kelly’s appearance) at last Saturday’s Scrabble with the Stars was the triple-score word-making prowess of actor John Dunsworth. Holy shit. Like a Scrabble-Jesus sent from above, the game fanatic and board collector laid his hands down on players’ tiles, identifying seven-letter words in seconds, settled X-word debates without flipping open a dictionary and scored 150-plus point turns. Even if you lost hard (ahem) it was for a good cause: Performing Art Lodge is dedicated to building affordable housing for artists in their senior years; painting and performing rarely comes with a pension.
