Did you know..?

Since its creation in 1931, the Scrabble board game has sold more than 150 million sets in over 120 countries. Though the formal timeline for the game’s history is a bit confusing, it is well documented that the game we know today as Scrabble was trademarked and officially released to the public in 1948. Prior to that, its creator Alfred Mosher Butts had struggled to come up with both the design and name.

His first version was a game he called Lexiko, later changed to Criss Cross Words. Sadly no manufacturers were interested in what he was offering, but then Butts met an entrepreneur named James Brunot, who was absolutely sure it would be a hit. After making some suggestions for changes in design and the rules, as well as offering a new name, Scrabble was officially born.
