Happy 60th, Scrabble™!

On Tuesday, my favorite board game hit the big six-oh.

Tonight I made this scan of of our portable board, the snap-in tiles in situ from our most recent match -- on August 8 of this year, while camping in Olympic National Park, I beat Eliza 282-248. Not too shabby, as my best-ever score is 323.

So killer is Scrabble™ that it inspired the killer book Word Freak, the killer documentary Word Wars, and Scrabulous, which hit the big oh-three this year (I haven't actually played it, so I'm not sure if it's indeed killer as well)...

Uh oh, Kwijybo on the loose!

I'll bet that Eliza added the 'e' to your 'rim,' no doubt?

Dirty monkey, you...
