Scrabble To Allow Proper Nouns
Hogwash McFly writes “The rules of the popular word game Scrabble are soon to allow proper nouns. Mattel, the makers of the game, hope the changes made for a new edition, released this July, will “add a new dimension” to Scrabble and “introduce an element of popular culture into the game”. With this rule change, the company hopes to target younger fans and families, although they will continue to sell the traditional version where ‘Beyonce’ and ‘Facebook’ are not permitted words.” Nobody is listening to my suggestion penalize any player who has memorized every 2 letter english word by 1 tile.
