Some people take wordsmithing pretty seriously, and there are very few games better at honing their skills than the venerable Scrabble. The above Typography Edition set of the game had been announced for some time now, but the news is that a shipping date has finally been set. As of August of this year, you could get your hands on a gorgeous, “six-panel solid walnut magnetized gameboard lined with slip free cork, a solid walnut storage case with drawer, metal tile racks, and solid walnut tiles featuring a variety of different and exciting fonts.” Designed by one Andrew Capener, the game will be limited to 1,200 units, each of which will be autographed.
It’s $200 and quite frankly, if you’re the type of person who’d take the game seriously enough to consider this a worthy purchase, it’s somewhat of a bargain.
