Scrabble is a board-and-tile board-and-tile game where two to four people compete in creating words using lettered tiles on an 225-square board. Words spelled out with letters on the tiles interlock as words in a crossword Puzzle.
The pool is where players draw seven tiles. After each turn, replenish the supply. The tiles in the pool, as well as those of the other players, are kept secret so that only the tiles on the board can be seen by the player. One player can forfeit his turn and trade any or all of his tiles to the pool. Each letter tile is imprinted with a point value, which corresponds to the frequency that the letter appears in English words. There are 100 of these letter tiles. Words can be scored by adding the points values of each letter to the number of premium squares, which may include double, triple, or triple letters.
As the game progresses, scoring is possible horizontally as well vertically. Higher scores can be achieved by forming more than one interlocking word at a time. The winner is the player with the most points. The values of any letters that have not been used by a player are added and subtracted from their scores.
SCRABBLE is a competitive game that’s very popular, and it continues to grow in popularity every year.
