National Scrabble Day
Scrabble is still a popular board game. Who is the original inventor of this wordy board game? How did it become so beloved?
National Scrabble Day is a celebration of Scrabble’s history and provides people with just enough excuse to play it.
Have you ever played Scrabble? National Scrabble Day was established to coincide with Alfred Mosher Butts’ birthday. He is the man who invented the game. All over the globe, Scrabble can be played. Scrabble has been played over many generations. While the board game version of the game is still popular, it can now be played on smartphones. This is an iconic board game, so it only makes sense that we celebrate it every day!
Scrabble is a board game that has been around for a long time. It all began during the 1929 Great Depression, when many people were unable to find work and became hungry for food.
One of these people created a game to help make life less miserable. Alfred Mosher Butts was an architect who had lost his job and wanted to create a game people could play in their spare time.
He was an avid gamer and combined elements from anagrams with the crossword puzzle to create a score-wording game. The original name of this game was LEXIKO. Later, Criss Cross Words would be given it.
Many game companies didn’t like his idea and rejected it. James Brunot was the one who reshaped his idea in terms of rules and design.
In 1948, the trademark was granted to the game. The game became America’s most beloved board game. The game became a television show at one point. The show Scrabble aired nationally on NBC in 1984 with Chuck Woolery as host.
The Scrabble dictionary keeps adding words each year to its definition. It is still enjoyed by many people as a way to have fun and pass the time. National Scrabble Day is celebrated every year on Butts’ birthday and encourages everyone to play the game.

National Scrabble Day can be used to improve your Scrabble skills. You can learn many tricks and tips to master this game. We recommend that you learn three- and two letter words. When used correctly, these words can help you score up to 50 points per game. These words may be small, but they pack a powerful punch. We recommend that you start to improve your vocabulary skills!
Another tip we love to use in Scrabble is to create two words simultaneously by using the letter “s”. You can pluralize a word by adding an “s”. It is important to ensure that this move earns you at least ten points. Because there are only four tiles called “s”, it is crucial to make the most of them.
Last tip: When playing Scrabble, you should aim for the “hot spots”. The hot spots are the areas of the board with bonus squares. If you can land on a square that contains a three-word word and a good word, you can really take the lead! This will increase your score by up to three digits and help you win the Scrabble crown!
