Snapshot: Game Board Changes Colour for Charity
25 September 2006 at 1:09 pm

In the UK, the famous board game Scrabble is to change colour for the first time in its history, to raise money for research into breast cancer, according to its makers Mattel.

Letter tiles, racks, boards and boxes will be tinged pink, with 1.50 pounds (about three dollars) from each 15-pound sale going to the Breakthrough Breast Cancer charity from mid-September.

So PARTNERSHIP wins with a score of 18 points! (That’s without any double or triple word score!)
