Scrabble is NOT changing its rules.

Recommended Posts

You may have heard that the rules of Scrabble are being dumbed down for the Millennial Generation. Scary, right? But it's not true.

 

Mattel in the U.K. is planning to launch Scrabble Trickster, a "souped-up" version of Scrabble in which players in some circumstances will be able to play proper nouns (such as "Scrabble"), steal tiles from rivals and even spell words backwards. Standard Scrabble will continue to be sold with the standard rules.

 

Here's one article. There are many.

 

Rest easy Scrabblers,

- Thoth

That's a relief. The new one does sound like fun though!

It does. But I can't help thinking of it as Scrabble for bad spellers.

Heh, for me it was easier to read what you wrote, than write what I said backwards.
