Had enough strategy board games for a while? Just want to sit back and relax by spelling some words with friends? Scrabble is the classic game that millions just like you have enjoyed for decades. However, you don't want to play Scrabble with a regular board. If you are going to play scrabble you should do so in luxury. Below are some of the best luxury boards money can buy:
Deluxe Wooden Edition - $100
Amazon offers the Deluxe Wooden Edition with Rotating Game Board for around $100. It features a raised grid to hold that gold foil stamped wooden tiles. The board also includes integrated storage for all components for easy storage and transportation.
Scrabble Luxury Edition - $199
Next up, also available on Amazon is the Scrabble Luxury Edition Board Game. This version features a tow-tone wooden cabinet with burled wood veneer. The top is a rotating faux-leather game board with a raised grid for easy tile placement.
Vintage Deluxe Scrabble - $249
Restoration Hardware's Vintage Brobdingnagian board delivers big fun for Scrabble fans of any age. A full 50% larger than the standard Scrabble set and crafted to endure, it comes with extra large, embossed wood letter tiles (easy for older eyes to see and little hands to hold), metal tile racks and timer. The wood-framed Lazy-Susan board features a raised grid to keep tiles in place from turn to turn.
Ultimate Luxury Scrabble Set - $4105
Luxury that goes way beyond words, every letter laid on this Scrabble set will feel like a triple-word score. Once again, Geoffrey Parker innovates with elegance that would translate to any language. This Dauphin-inlaid set features hand-bound scallop-sided plinth, both refined and regal. The board boasts silver or gold embossing under a nickel plated grid, so that syllables sparkle, whether you're throwing down "swank" or "sesquipedalian." Neatly stored beneath the board are four leather-bound letter racks, a felt drawstring bag, a booklet of rules, and the letters, made of buttery bridle-hide. The gameboard is revolutionary, mounted to a concealed Lazy Susan, allowing the playing surface to rotate freely with the tiles locked firmly into place. This gorgeous game is available in a variety of colors, all constructed from Geoffrey Parker's legendary selections of Dauphin calfskin.
I enjoy biking and hiking in the great outdoors, playing and designing board games, and drinking amazing craft beer.
