April 13 is Scrabble Day - a day set aside to enjoy the hugely popular word game. Scrabble was invented in 1938 by Alford Marshall Butts.
This April 13 you can celebrate Scrabble Day by playing one of the many versions of the game. There is the classic board game plus many spin-offs like Scrabble Apple and Scrabble Slam. No time for the board game? Then play Scrabble on your mobile device. Scrabble is available in many forms and can be played practically anywhere. With all the different options to play, there really is no reason you cannot get in at least one Scrabble game for Scrabble Day.
Scrabble is a very popular game that many enjoy playing. There are tournaments held where people really take their Scrabble serious. When you play Scrabble, it is handy to have a Scrabble dictionary in case a word is challenged. Thumbing through the dictionary is also a good way to improve your Scrabble skills. Playing an electronic version of Scrabble is usually faster than the board game version and can help with word discovery.
Get ready for Scrabble Day by brushing up on those two letter words - especially ones that use high-scoring letters. Small words that use high-scoring letters can help you rack up a lot of points. Large words also can score points and earn bonuses. Use all of your letters for a Scrabble Bingo and bonus points. While playing on Scrabble Day should be fun and enjoyable, it does not mean you should not play to win.
Mark your calendars and make it a game night on April 13. Play Scrabble with friends and family. Let us celebrate this very popular word game. Without Scrabble, who would know that za is short for pizza - and worth 11 points? Scrabble has increased our vocabulary as well as provided for plenty of entertainment.
