K is not the highest score, like the 10 points earned for Q and Z, or the 8 points for J and X, but way better than all the 1-point letters. K is the only 5-point letter and there is only one in the game. Of course, that is only in the English version. The game is made in 42 other languages and the tiles are valued differently in each, according to frequency of use. In the Czech version, K is only worth one point, like the other frequently used letters in their alphabet.
Did you guess what that weird title meant? Good for you! Tomorrow is Scrabble Day and since it’s one of my favorite games, I thought it fitting for the A-Z April Challenge today. Scrabble was invented by American architect, Alfred Mosher Butts in 1938. The scoop on Scrabble can be found at http://www.scrabble-assoc.com/info/history.html
I took a few minutes and went to the beach to make you this beach sand alphabet photo. Such a sacrifice!
