National Scrabble Day
Today is National Scrabble Day! Observed annually on April 13th, this holiday celebrates this popular board game on the birthday of its inventor, Alfred Mosher Butts. This American architect created the game, which he originally named “Lexiko.” Its name was then changed to “Criss-Cross Worlds,” and later came to be known as Scrabble.
Scrabble is a family-friendly board game sold in over 120 countries, in 29 different languages! It’s so popular that it’s found in approximately one-third of all American homes, and was inducted into the National Toy Hall of fame in 2004.
To celebrate, invite friends to participate in an exciting virtual Scrabble tournament! Our free Scrabble online invitation is perfect for organizing a game night.
