In addition to Spanish and Italian Scrabble, the LRC now has French Scrabble! It’s a great way to practice spelling and vocabulary while having lots of fun, regardless of level.
You can play the same way as English Scrabble, with 2-4 players and words placed horizontally or vertically, players rotate turns, the game ends when all letters in the bag have been used and once one player finishes all of their letters. For a fun, new twist on a classic, you can incorporate the “tulies spéciales”. Each player gets three of the special tiles to use in addition to the normal 7. One of these three functions the same as the blank tile, but is worth 3 points, while the other two can be used to claim empty spaces for your next turn. There is also a variation for team play.
If you’re a French beginner, use a dictionary while you play to learn new words! Come down to the LRC to play! Jouons!
