Scrabble may be a household name in 2013, but the popular board game had humble beginnings when architect Alfred M. Butts lost his job during the Great Depression in the 1930s, and decided to create it.
At that time however, it was not known as Scrabble. In fact it wasn’t until Butts teamed up with James Brunot in 1948 until the game went from called things like Lexico and Criss Cross Words to the more simple, easy to remember Scrabble. The game has of course gone to become a fan favorite over the decades, and to celebrate over 100 million games being sold Restoration Hardware has introduced this beautifully crafted Vintage Edition Scrabble. The board game has been completely re-imagined as an early day, vintage form including the solid hardwood game cabinet and die cast metal accents. Purchase yours for $199.
