Get Off My Scrabble Board!!!


BBC News is reporting that the rules of word game Scrabble are being changed for the first time in its history to allow the use of proper nouns.

Place names, people's names and company names or brands will now count.
Mattel, which brings out a new version of the game containing amended rules in July, hopes the change will encourage younger people to play.

I play Scrabble as often as possible.  I played a game as recently as Sunday.  I love my Scrabble and this is the worst idea I've ever heard.

This reeks of New Coke.  I'll stick with my Classic Scrabble, thank you very much.
