Here’s how it works: Spellers start off with one free beer on the house, to settle their nerves. We call it “spellin’ juice.” Then they get a number. Then they spell words in the order of the number around their necks. If they spell the word correctly, they get another free beer and move on to the next round. If they spell it wrong, they’re out.
There are four rounds, with the difficulty increasing every round. Spellers can ask for definitions, languages of origin, parts of speech, and (our favorite) a mildly offensive sentence using the word. Any spellers left standing after round 4 will enter the lightning round. Last speller standing wins a $25 bar tab and INFINITE GLORY. And a t-shirt, if we have one handy.
