Vintage Scrabble

In the 1938, during the Great Depression, an unemployed architect named Alfred M. Butts invented a board game using letter tiles and a scoring system. He first called it Lexiko and then -with a set of new features- he called it Criss Cross Words. In 1948, after various attempts to sell the game to the many of the major game manufacturers of the day, he teamed with entrepreneur James Brunot, that the name Scrabble® was born. The game’s wild popularity began in the ’50s and continues today. The game is sold in 121 countries and there are 29 different language versions. Approximately 150 million sets have been sold worldwide, and sets are found in roughly one-third of American homes. And now, it has an exclusive vintage edition from Restoration Hardware

The game cabinet of the vintage edition is crafted of solid hardwood and features die cast metal accents, including the drawer pull and tile racks. Rotating game board has a raised grid with 4 metal tile racks. It has a fabric Scrabble tile pouch with 100 embossed wood letter tiles. The Fabric-wrapped score book has a matching pencil and the timer is metal casted. And the most catchy of all, the storage drawer with elegant organizer tray.

Appeared suddenly like a wandering spirit, this old-timer has charmed us all!
