There aren't enough Scrabble tiles for that one!
SCRABBLE was invented in 1938 byAlfred Mosher Butts and was originally called Lexico. It was James Brunot who bought the rights to the game in 1948 that changed the name to Scrabble. He also made the point values different on the letters and made the rules less complex. In 1952 when Brunot was unable to produce the game as fast as the demand for it, he sold it to Salchow and Righter. The company is now a subsidiary of Mattel.
