I'm thinking of getting a group of folks together to play as a team semi-regularly, but while that's getting setup I decided to start archiving the games, because that's the sort of thing I do, I guess.
I started out by looking to see if there already was a standard scrabble game notation. There are a few, but none of them are particularly well thought out. The most commons seems to be the log2 format. It's human readable, but pretty fiddly syntax wise.
Last weeks game as a log2 file starts like this:

was created with the help of the board display tool by Graham Toal.
Once I get that page into a format I like, I'll probably create a CGI that converts log2 files to HTML visualizations on the fly. I, however, definitely don't have time for something like that now.
I think this idea is really cool. -Hamil
