So when was the last time you played Scrabble? It’s been a while for me. Alfred Mosher Butts created the game back in 1938. When Scrabble first came out, it was a fun way to pass the time. Nowadays though most people are on their phones, tablets, or computers. I sort of miss the good ol’ days. We actually talked to each other, enjoyed each other’s company, and made eye contact. That doesn’t happen much anymore. So why April 13th? Well, that was Alfred’s birthday.
How to celebrate – Play a game of Scrabble. See all the board games Hasbro, Inc. has available. Study the dictionary before playing.
Whether you can spell or not, Scrabble is a game nearly everyone can enjoy. Naturally if you want to win, spelling helps. The game was created by Alfred Mosher Butts in 1938 and today is his birthday. It is distributed by Hasbro and is one of the best selling games since it first came out. It’s like an ever changing crossword puzzle. You might be surprised by some of the words you know (Even if you didn’t know them before playing the game.) It can last for hours, or you can shorten it by removing tiles. Actually you can invent a new version of the game nearly every time you play.
How to celebrate – Buy a Scrabble game. Make up your own rules, make sure to tell other players what they are. Create a Scrabble tournament.
