WordGamers International

‘by the players, for the players’

Who we are

WordGamers International (WGI) is a group of wordgame players who support an unexpurgated word list for tournaments. We have no commercial or political agenda.

Our aims

  1. To provide an alternative unexpurgated word source for supporting player organisations to use in their rated competitions.
  2. To provide a ratings system that includes international events and major national/state events played using the alternative unexpurgated word source.

We invite organisers of major CSW19 events to submit their events for inclusion in our tournament calendar for eventual rating in our WGI ratings system for tournaments played with an unexpurgated lexicon.
