I just heard yesterday that the game, Scrabble will be changing some of the rules of their game! Evidently they are going to allow proper names, places, titles etc... WOW!
My first thought was, "That will be helpful." Then the more I thought about it I realized that the challenge of the game will be lost! Don't you think?
With all the different names in the world, who is to say what is a REAL name or not when you are playing? I think it may come to the point that anything goes. If so, what will be the fun of it without certain restrictions?
I grew up playing Scrabble. My Dad loved that game and he was great at making the triple word plays and using the spaces to his benefit. My husband and I love the game too; we recently received the new one with carrying case etc...very handy:) Our kids and now our grandkids even play, it is a great way to teach them how to spell words.
You know, maybe when the new version come out I think I will just keep playing the one I have with the original rules. There are enough things "scrabbled" up in this world already, keeping this game the way it was meant to be feels right somehow. What do you think?
