    Description

    Scrabble clone that can be dated to about 1950, before the first official Swedish edition of Scrabble. As in Scrabble, gameplay consists of taking turns to place letter tiles forming words on the board to score points, then refilling your hand of tiles. Once there are no more tiles in the stock, the first player to empty their hand ends the game and earns a bonus. Some specifics:

    • The board is 17x17 and there are 101 letter tiles.
    • Each player has a hand of 8 tiles.
    • "Hooking" is allowed.
    • If the rules are taken literally, a player may only exchange tiles if they cannot play at all, and must then exchance all of their tiles.
    • Base scoring is 5p per vowel and 10p per consonant. White squares score triple, while numbered squares provide a flat but often substantial bonus. It also says you score double for playing in the coloured quadrant corresponding to your tile holder, but the tile holders provided are not coloured.
