VINTAGE EDITION SCRABBLE BOARD GAME

If you fancy yourself a Scrabble champion, this might be right up your ally! Priced at $199 this excellently crafted board game can be had from restoration hardware.

In the 1930s, during the Great Depression, an unemployed architect named Alfred M. Butts invented a board game using letter tiles and a scoring system. He first called it Lexico, then Criss Cross Words, but it was in 1948, when he teamed with entrepreneur James Brunot, that the name Scrabbleยฎ was born. The game’s wild popularity began in the ’50s and continues today. Over 100 million Scrabble games have been sold worldwide.
