Drew Capener, and has already been described as the "World's Most Beautiful Scrabble
Game."* The SCRABBLE Typography Edition combines the hot fashion trend of varied
typography with an innovative game board design. The board is actually comprised of
six printed wooden pieces of solid walnut that magnetically attach to create the playing
area. The fonts used on the SCRABBLE letter tiles are as interesting as they are
unique. The game panels and components store in a beautiful solid walnut case with a
storage drawer. The design is topped off with a solid birch box "package" that makes
this magnificent set a showpiece and fashion accessory in any home.
