As of March, 2019, in addition to the games played using the NWL2020 Lexicon, this club also keeps stats for games played using the International English Collins Lexicon; as of 2019, this is the CSW2019 Lexicon. Separate ratings and challenged words are computed and reported for these games.
Several players like to meet to play in the late afternoon at the nearby Starbucks at 60 Bedford Street. Games played there can be entered on the game sheet at the club and will count in the club ratings.
