There are those who love Scrabble and those who don’t. For the folks who belong to the former category, the question is just how far are you willing to go for the love of the game? Would you, for instance, invest in a designer edition of the board game? Mind you, the price will be baller. If yes, you’d better not miss Andrew Clifford Capener’s A-1 Scrabble pack.
Andrew Capener’s Scrabble is all about font and typography. You can order your scrabble set in a font of your choice. Or you might also decide to settle for an assorted font pack. Any additional font packs can be ordered through Scrabble’s website. The game, however, remains the same. Although, you can play it with an interesting twist i.e. challenge yourself to design the best looking word rather than a word that would earn you the highest points.
The board and box inside are made out of walnut wood and the main box that houses both of the above is made of birch wood. The main box has an “A1” tile for the label (1 being a subscript). Inside the walnut box, is a set of pull out drawers that reveal the board. The board is made up of six different pieces that are magnetized and fit together perfectly like a jigsaw without the curves. When not in use, each piece fits snugly into its pre-assigned slots in the box. There are magnets inside the box that hold the pieces in place. The bottom of the six board pieces and interior of the main box are lined with cork for extra protection during usage. The letters are etched in lighter shades on the dark tiles for added effect.
No news on the pricing but we’re guessing it will set you back by a few hundred dollars. The designer edition takes the old classic board game to a whole new level. The design is minimalistic and macho with the blackish brown hue and polish for the board. Be warned, though, that with its stunning good looks, it might actually detract from the word game and shift the focus to design.
