National Scrabble Day
National Scrabble Day has cast a spell on us.
April 13 is the day Scrabble inventor Alfred Mosher Butts was born. He gave the world an iconic board game now played all over the world. Today, more than seven decades later, we live for “Triple Word Scores”! Not to mention, the strategic use of those mysterious blank tiles.
Now then, time to lift the lid on that game box, pick out your first seven letters, and begin! Don’t forget the Scrabble Dictionary. We don’t want any squabbles — which, by the way, happens to be a valuable Scrabble word (21 points)! It’s time to C-E-L-E-B-R-A-T-E one of the world’s most iconic board games.

2.Host a Scrabble tournament
Scrabble tournaments can get intense but they are also great fun — so invite some friends!

The pros are impressive! Watch as they effortlessly throw down words like “quixotic.” A cool 76 points — including the 50-point bonus for using all seven tiles.
