I've been playing some form of Scrabble for as long as I can remember. I started with Scrabble Junior until I was wise enough to start playing the adult version. Everytime I see a new or different version of Scrabble for sale, I want it. But I only own 3 versions: Scrabble deluxe which has a lazy-susan type board, travel Scrabble, and Book Lovers Scrabble. But then the other day I was at Value Village and I stumbled across these vintage beauties:
|Scrabble Crossword/Dominoes circa 1975|
|Scrabble Sentence Cube Game circa 1971|
|It doesn't even look like it has ever been played!|
When I saw these on the shelf I grabbed them so fast and held them to my chest, looking out the corner of my eye at the lady scanning the shelves next to me like, "THEY'RE MINE, THEY'RE MINE! I SAW THEM FIRST". Pretty sure she thought I was more than a little crazy. I actually don't know if these are considered *vintage*, but come on - I didn't even know such versions of my favourite game existed! The boxes are a little banged up, but the pieces don't look like they've ever been used. And they were just 3 dollars a piece!
Now I just need someone to play them with. Jim actually said he'd play them with me, but I think he just felt bad telling me no after I came home and proudly showed them to him, excitedly asking him "WILL YOU PLAY WITH ME, WILL YOU!?" Sadly, my Book Lovers Scrabble (which was a wedding present from my bookstore manager - an awesome present I might add), has never been played yet either.
So, who wants to come over and play Scrabble?
