Though personalised scrabble board game idea initially started as a birthday idea, we think it is a simple and great idea for any Scrabble lover, for any occasion.
They aren’t so tough to make and all you need to do is to get them framed once the pieces are put in place. It does not take a lot of time to make & is pretty sweet, as you can make the words as per what the person likes or better, how you feel about the person. Another option, is to write a message for them to decode.
Since, this board was for our grandmum, we focused on some words that had a story behind them, some related to things she liked to d (like chanting and bridge), some favorites (blue is a favorite color) etc. Practically speaking, we also added a few words that are a bit irrelevant, because we really wanted to complete all the tiles on the board.
It takes a few hours to complete. Which is a deceptively long time, as you have to think of all the words and place them correctly on the board. But, the end result is worth it, right?
To make the board last for a long time, we stuck the tiles onto the board with a little glue. What works best, is a travel scrabble board, as the tiles get stuck onto the board with groves on the bottom of tiles. But, if a travel board isn’t available, all you need to do, is dab the bottom of each tile and stick it on.
