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 Scrabble® was born. The game’s wild popularity began in the ’50s and continues today. Over 100 million Scrabble games have been sold worldwide.
