Scrabble

ScrabbleScrabble® is a board game for two, three, or four players, played on a gameboard made up of 225 squares (15 x 15). 164 of the squares are normal, while the remainder have special attributes such as "double letter", "triple letter", "double word", and "triple word". Each player draws seven lettered tiles at random, and attempts to make a word on the board. The only real rules are that the word must use at least one previously-played letter, must form a word horizontally or vertically, and that the word must be a dictionary word (no people or place names).

The resulting game ends up looking something like a crossword puzzle. Thus, Scrabble® is sometimes known as the "crossword" game.

For even more fun, try Super Scrabble, which is a super-sized edition of the game, with more spaces, more tiles, and more points. In addition to the normal double and triple squares, Super Scrabble has quadruple letter and word score spaces!
