Should the rules for Scrabble be changed?
Place names, people's names and company names or brands will now count. Until now a few proper nouns had been allowed which were determined by a word list based on the Collins dictionary.
Mattel, which brings out a new version of the game containing amended rules in July, hopes the change will encourage younger people to play. However they said it would not be doing away with the old rules altogether and will continue to sell a board with the original rules.
Will you be buying the new version of Scrabble or do you prefer to stick to the original rules? Will the new rules help to introduce younger players to the game?
