The rules Scrabble is the most-purchased board game on the planet. It first came about in New York in the 1930s. Each player has a certain number of letters with which he or she has to form words to place on the board. Each letter equals a certain number of points, and the winner is the player with the highest number of points at the end.
Who's it for? When you think of Scrabble, you often think of a pair of old dears sat around cups of tea. Out with the clichés - Scrabble is for people of all ages! Youngsters will love it too, as long as they like playing with words and have a big enough vocabulary.
Who with? If you're spending time with your parents, why not suggest a game of Scrabble? It's an ideal way to end a family dinner over coffee.
