Scrabble words, scrabble fonts
March 2, 2011 § 4 Comments
Scrabble is the only board game that has (physically) survived my childhood and sits quietly at a cupboard in my living room. It’s a game for a lifetime. That’s what Andrew Capener thought: “Scrabble could be making a lot more money off of its players if there could be a way for them to constantly feel as if they need to update […] Since fonts are like fashion […] this would provide Scrabble with a way to keep customers coming back to them, wanting to update their set”.
And he created A-1, this magnificent, design-savy Scrabble set that has me drooling.
What I love the most? The ransom-note effect of words. Especially if it’s a kick-ass, 7 letter word, on a 3x multiplier. Oh, the thrill!
