When was Scrabble born?
The game was created in 1931 year , so next year, it will celebrate its 90th birthday. “Criss-Cross” was its first name. Architect Alfred Mosher Butts came up with the idea of creating this type of word game. The man coming from Rhinebeck, New York state was not working in the profession at a time , which prompted him to look for the possibility to earn money from the original idea of a board game. What is interesting , the word game from “Golden Beetle” by Edgar Allan Poe inspired Butts . The famous American horror writer made stories, in which main character , in order to get the treasure , he was forced to solve the word mystery. For this purpose, he had to use mental juggling with the letters of the alphabet.
Alfred Butts was planning to name the game “Lexuko”, however, he has already given the name “Criss Cross Words” to the producers, which way better reflected the purpose of the game of arranging words from letters. Unfortunately, ( as it turned out later , mainly, for themselves ), the producers completely ignored Butts’ invention. He has managed to sell the rights to the game after long searches to an attorney named James Brunoto. By the way, the creator improved the game and changed its name to the well-known one – Scrabble, again.
