Scrabble is a classic word game in which two to four players score points by placing tiles bearing a single letter onto a board divided into a 15×15 grid of squares. The tiles must form words that, in crossword fashion, read left to right in rows or downward in columns, and be a valid word as defined in a standard dictionary. Official tournament and international play uses only words contained on the official Scrabble lexicon, which includes all allowed 2-letter through 9-letter words.

The game is sold in 121 countries and has been translated into 29 languages; more than 150 million sets have been sold worldwide, making it the best-selling board game of all time.

This classic board game was first created in 1938 by American architect Alfred Butts.


The board is marked with "premium" squares, which multiply the number of points awarded:

- Triple-word scores

- Double-letter scores

- Triple-letter scores

- Double-word scores

There are 100 tiles in a standard scrabble set. 98 of these are values 1 to 10 points, and there are 2 blank tiles that score 0 points. The point values of the letters are:

1 point: E ×12, A ×9, I ×9, O ×8, N ×6, R ×6, T ×6, L ×4, S ×4, U ×4

2 points: D ×4, G ×3

3 points: B ×2, C ×2, M ×2, P ×2

4 points: F ×2, H ×2, V ×2, W ×2, Y ×2

5 points: K ×1

8 points: J ×1, X ×1

10 points: Q ×1, Z ×1
