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.
