Bring the outdoors home with National Parks Themed Scrabble
A special National Park themed edition of the popular Scrabble game is now available.
Scrabble owners looking for a new challenge or those who love the outdoors can rejoice, as a special edition of the popular national park themed game Scrabble is now available.
While the idea of ââprotected natural areas had already been established elsewhere, the modern identity of a national park can arguably be traced back to Yellowstone National Park. It was officially established in 1782 and became the first in the United States. Since then, 62 areas are now protected areas in the United States and have become national parks. Scrabble was invented by Alfred Mosher Butts in 1938 and is currently owned by Hasbro North America and Mattel Worldwide. This is a turn-based word game where players compete for the highest score by creating words from a random selection of letter tiles. Each tile has a point value which is counted when placing a word.
USAopoly (the Op) has partnered with national parks to offer a range of themed titles to the board game market. As good as Scrabble: National Parks Special Edition, players can get their hands on themed editions of Monopoly, Go wild, Jenga, Trivial Pursuit (travel edition), and Yahtzee.
The Scrabble: National Parks Special Edition fits a niche we didn’t know we had. Everything tells a story about the long heritage of national parks in the United States. It all starts with the beautifully designed box and Scrabble board that has a rustic feel reminiscent of national park maps. The tiles and supports are made of wood and have an additional location for storing maps of national parks. These new cards (can possibly) bring an advantage to the game by awarding additional points if you complete any of the thematic achievements. Players can also place nouns and verbs on national parks, which gives more word opportunities to score points.
Scrabble: National Parks Special Edition is intended for players of 2 to 4 players, ages eight and up. Typical playing time is around 60 minutes. You can choose to play the standard game of scrabble, or bring your knowledge of national parks with you to score extra points. A portion of the game’s sales will go to the National Park Foundation to preserve national parks for the enjoyment of future generations.
