World SCRABBLE® Championship 2007   This year the World SCRABBLE® Championship (WSC) will be held at the Taj President Hotel in Mumbai, India on November 9–12.

WSC 2007 will be played for the first time under
WESPA Game Rules. The dictionary of reference will be Collins Scrabble Tournament & Club Word List, and as in 2005, unsuccessful challenges attract a 5 point penalty for each word challenged that is found to be in the dictionary.

There will be a 24-round modified Swiss tournament, starting each day at 8:00 A.M. The top two players will contest a five-game final on Monday 12 November beginning at 10:00 A.M., with closed circuit coverage to an audience. In the first round, no two players representing the same country will be paired with each other.

This year's prize fund is US$30,500 from which 1st place receives US$15,000, 2nd - US$6,000 and 3rd - US$3,000
