Scrabble is the worlds leading word game. Every word counts when you are playing this specifically designed classic game. It is fascinating, mind-sharpening, and entertaining. Richly rewarding, ideal for an exciting head-to-head challenge, or to relax with family and friends. You have a game board, letter tiles, a letter bag, and four racks. Before the game begins, all players should agree upon the dictionary that they will use. All words are permitted except words that are always capitalized, abbreviations, prefixes, and suffixes, or words requiring a hyphen or an apostrophe. Place all letters in the pouch, or facedown beside the board, and mix them up. Draw for the first play. The player with the letter closest to "A" plays first. A blank tile beats any letter. Return the letters to the pool and remix. All players draw seven new letters and place them on their racks.
