Invented by an out-of-work architect in 1933, the game of Scrabble became an American pastime after a rebranding and subsequent discovery by the president of Macy’s department stores in the early 1950s.
My parents were big Scrabble players. I remember my mother being especially competitive, with a Webster’s Dictionary readily at hand to challenge some word she was certain my father had concocted. It was a rite of passage in my house to be deemed worthy to sit at the table, draw the tiles and compete.
Consider it with your family. Scrabble is great fun, inexpensive and you’ll make memories.
