Last year Andrew Capener designed a rather lovely Scrabble set with a sleek walnut board and assorted fonts on the tiles with the goal of exciting people about typography.
He succeeded. There was so much positive feedback online for the set that Hasbro has teamed up with licensee Winning Solutions to make the Scrabble Typography Edition a reality.
It will be available in two versions come August: a $200 retail set that will look almost identical to his original vision and a $50 version that will still use a unique set of fonts on the alphabet tiles. Additional fonts will be available for purchase after the initial release.
