The rules of chess pieces’ movement changed into rules. That we know nowadays started in Spain around the end of the 15th Century. After that, a few rules standardization also happened in the 19th Century. The first world official chess champion was also recorded during that time.

It was Wilhelm Steinitz, who achieve the first chess champion at that time. Since 1948 until now, Federation Internationale des Echecs (or FIDE), always held the world championship of this strategy board game.

Fun board game – Scrabble is a board game that requires you to arrange words on the board. This game can be played by two up to four people. Your objective is to collect points by placing a letter by letters and arrange it into a word in English.

What is the difficulty?

The difficulty of this game is not very hard, and this is a fun board game to play with your family. Also, this game is much educative, especially for people who are not native English speakers or who want to learn English. They will be able to learn some English words, few by few in no time.

For the first time, Scrabble created in 1938 under a different name called Criss-Crosswords by an architect, Alfred Mosher Butts. This fun board game is actually an improved version of its previous word game, Lexiko, who also created by Alfred Mosher Butts too.

Alfred tried to offers this fun board game to many game companies. However, all of those companies are not interested in that game. Until 1948, a lawyer from Newtown, Connecticut, named James Brunot, came to Alfred and bought the production license of Criss-Crosswords.

He promised to give royalty to Alfred for every unit of this board game got sold. As the new owner, James Brunot changed the game’s name into Scrabble, changed a few bonus boxes, and simplified the rules. Scrabble was sold, one of the buyers is Macy’s, a department store that lifts Scrabble into a game that board game that people want to buy.

In 1953, James Brunot sold the production license to Selchow and Righter Company. Because of the capacity production can’t be handled. Ironically, Selchow and Righter were one of the companies that refused to sell the game when Alfred offered back then. Now, at least three families in America own one of this fun board game. If you are interested to learn English, this game is my recommendation.
