Scrabble Day is an annual celebration of the popular word game Scrabble, which is played by millions of people around the world. The day is observed on April 13th each year, in honour of the birthday of Alfred Mosher Butts, the inventor of Scrabble.
Scrabble is a board game that was first created in the 1930s by Butts, a struggling architect and amateur game designer. The game involves using letter tiles to form words on a grid board, with each letter having a point value based on its frequency of use in the English language. Players take turns placing tiles on the board, trying to score as many points as possible by forming high-scoring words and taking advantage of bonus squares on the board.
Scrabble quickly became popular after its commercial release in 1948 and has since become one of the most beloved and iconic board games in the world. It has been adapted into numerous digital and mobile versions and has been played competitively in tournaments and championships around the world.
On Scrabble Day, people celebrate the joy and excitement of playing Scrabble with friends, family, and fellow enthusiasts. Activities may include hosting Scrabble tournaments or game nights, sharing stories and memories about playing Scrabble, and spreading awareness of the game’s history and cultural significance.
Whether you’re a seasoned Scrabble pro or a newcomer to the game, Scrabble Day is a great opportunity to appreciate the fun and challenge of this classic word game and to connect with others who share your passion for words and language.
