Tom Whipple is the science editor at The Times, and a bad loser. He has spent countless hours phoning experts and distilling their knowledge--normally about somewhat more serious subjects than games. He has been a feature writer for Times2 and contributes features for The Economist Intelligent Life, among other magazines. His wife has stopped playing Scrabble with him because, she claims, he is the sort of person who learns all the two-letter words without knowing their meaning.
