A unique achievement of the Pakistan Scrabble has been that when the whole world was paralyzed including the World of Scrabble, it was the Pakistan young fraternity which filled energy into the World Scrabble by starting the First Online Scrabble events. Which were also later adapted by other International Scrabble associations and groups with the effort PSA-Pakistan Scrabble Association.
The Masters Championship event was announced by the Director Youth Program Mr. Tariq Pervez along with Mr. Zubair Ahmed of PharmEvo at a ceremony held at PharmEvo office in Karachi.
