Introducing Scrabble Dating, the hybrid dating event where we take the classic board game, Scrabble and cross it with speed dating.

You will get to play several games whilst flirting and testing out your vocabulary with around 15 members of the opposite sex.

To add a twist, points will be doubled for rude/sweary words. Good news for the dirty minded and potty mouth singles amongst you.

Scrabble Dating is a great way to meet new people in a fun, relaxed environment. You will have around 4 minutes with each person to chat, flirt and put your word skills to the test.

The next day you will find out who you matched with online and you'll be seeing each other again in no time.

Book now, this event is selling fast!

Online and mobile app matching

After you've met everyone, you'll need to input your 'Yes', 'Friend' and 'No' choices into the Mixeo app or our website. You have the whole next day to make up your mind. Your matches are then published at 5pm on the day following your event and you'll be able to get in touch with anyone you matched with via our messaging system.

Scrabble Dating 

Here at Original Dating, we love a good mashup and our latest wheeze is called Scrabble Dating. We've taken the innocent word game you probably played with your grandparents and crossbred it with speed dating and the result is something rather special. And because it's you, we've also added a naughty twist. 

Join us for this event and you'll meet several members of the opposite sex over a number of short games of scrabble each with a different opponent.

The aim of the game is to form the longest word you can from a given number of letters. Points are awarded in the process and we give double points for risqué/sweary/rude words. These don't have to be in the dictionary to qualify, they just have to make your partner laugh.

During each game/date you will also have ample time to get to know your fellow player.

After your allotted time is up the guys will leave their tiles and move onto the next date, where you start afresh with a new board and a new opponent.

If you have the chance to spell out that seven letter curse word, do it. Of course you may not be able to play a rude word, you can still play any word you can but for whoever spells the highest scoring rude word wins the prize. 

Scrabble Dating is a fun and interactive way to meet new people, we think you'll agree. 

How do I match with someone?

You will receive a scorecard to keep track of everyone you meet on the night. After the event you'll visit our website to select all the people you'd like to see again. At 5pm the following day, our system will work out who you mutually matched with and you'll be able to get in touch with anyone you matches with via the site. 

How long does it last?

Around 2 hours with a break half way through to top up drinks. Of course after the event you are always welcome to stick around and mingle some more. 


Our events are guaranteed 

If you don't meet someone you want to see again at one of our speed dating events your next speed dating event is free.

Why not join us for this event? 80% of clients get at least one match! When it comes to speed dating in London nobody does it better!
