Last year Andrew Capener designed a stunning Scrabble set with a minimalist wooden board and a lovely use of fonts on the tiles which had even Gizmodo alum Rosa wishing it was a reality. Well come August, it will be.
What makes anything better? Food. Wait. That wasn't the answer I was looking for. Oh! Magnets! So if you turn Scrabble magnetic and slap the tiles onto your fridge, you can make excuses that you're learning up some vocabulary as you gorge on the magical leftovers inside your refrigerator. Win, win.
If you suck at Scrabble as much as I do, the prospect of putting your epic three-letter creations on display with this massive 49-square foot board isn't that appealing. Nor is paying £7,695 just to embarrass yourself.
The other week we were playing Scrabble in the pub. We got our arses totally kicked to seven shades of Sunday. We tried to save face and moaned that the board had been sabotaged because of the suspiciously large number of "x"s in the bag, but the honest truth of the matter was this: we were crap.
