National Scrabble Day 2017

Reason to celebrate: April 13, 2017 is National Scrabble Day.

Scrabble Day

Undoubtedly the easiest method to celebrate Scrabble Day is by using Oxyphenbutazone. Actually, Oxyphenbutazone is really a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug – you already understood that – but it is also the term that, in one play, can provide the greatest possible score on the Scrabble board. The likelihood of it ever approaching are the same likelihood of winning this week’s lottery, as you’d have to join all seven of the tiles with eight already around the board across three triple word scores. Still, it’d be worth awaiting, scoring 1,778 points. You’d probably win the overall game with this. There’s you don't need to chase rainbows though everybody loves Scrabble, so why wouldn't you spend Scrabble Day with someone you want, inside a friendly fight of words and wits? Within the kingdom of Scrabble, the main one ‘i’d guy may be ‘king’, however the lady using the ‘q’ will certainly be full.
