In scrabble, PASSION is worth 9 points, FOREVER is worth 13 points, and LOVE is worth only 7 points. In life, love is worth all of the points though! Thanks for letting me be cheesy there for a minute, I couldn’t help myself! Scrabble is such a fun game to play and the tiles have inspired countless creators to make signs, represent family trees, and even make a giant version of the game for outdoors. Spoiler: I googled it, the oversized game exists and is now added as a project I want for the summer.
It feels like it has been around forever but it was created by an out of work architect during the Great Depression – Alfred Mosher Butts. It started out with different names but they settled on the name Scrabble. It means to grasp, collect or hold onto something which is fitting for the game. Before I keep collecting words (the puns keep coming) on this post, check out more of the history on scrabble here. Even better, check out how I made this scrabble decoration below!
