Designer Scrabble by Andrew Clifford Capener

A classic game reimagined for type nerds. No longer will you strategize about how to make a high-point word, but rather how to make the prettiest one.

Andrew Clifford Capener has designed the A-1 Scrabble designer edition.

From the designer:

The purpose of this project was to revive an old, but loved game. The idea was to excite people about typography by giving them the ability to choose what font their scrabble set would come in. The set would be available in the font of your choice or with an assorted font pack. Additional font packs (including your favorite font) could be ordered through Scrabble’s website. The scrabble board and interior box are made out of solid walnut, and the exterior box is made from birch. Each of the 6 board pieces is magnetized to fit together perfectly and each piece slides nicely into its respective slot in the box and is secured by interior magnets as well. The interior of the exterior box as well as the bottoms of the 6 board pieces are lined with cork, to protect them while in use.
