Serious Scrabblers can now get glitzy with their game.
At the American International Toy Fair in New York, Hasbro unveiled a ‘Diamond Scrabble’ board. But before you rush out to get your blinged out triple word scores, you may want to challenge the diamonds on the board. The game company teamed up with Swarovski to create a ‘crystal Scrabble’ board commemorating Scrabble’s 60th anniversary.
Over 30,000 Swarovski crystals bedazzle the glass Scrabble board that features all of the ordinary section of a Scrabble board, including the special squares designated for extra word and letter points. In the center is a red tile with a white heart and the edges feature the “Diamond Scrabble” branding.
The one-off set is to be auctioned off in the summer and is expected to bring in around $20,000, all of the proceeds benefiting the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
