Hello brilliant,

I think most of you know the game called $SCRABBLE$ which is played by $2$ to $4$ people by placing tiles onto a game-board divided into $15 \times 15$ grid of squares.

without taking it long , i want to represent A new kind of Scrabble it is $Math$ $Scrabble$ or $Numbers$ $Scrabble$ , its principles are the same as the normal ones and it is a very fun way to make the children and even the old people learn math with fun.

These are some picture of the Game:

Not only that , there is also a binary version of it :

I found it very interesting So i decided to share it with you.

For more details and Rules you can check The Original Post

Feel Free to share the note and hope you add your suggestions to develop The game and make it more complex for More challenge :)

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

So, for actual comments of this idea:

• No scores = :(
• "Words" get really long, which heavily discourages parallel plays. Personally I find parallel plays to be the interesting part of Scrabble.

@Ivan Koswara , parallel playing is an essential part of the game. And such type of scrabble, heavily discourages it. I'm completely in favour of your opinion :(

This is damn interesting! I'm a national level Scrabble player (Not to brag) but this is simply great! I'll sure try it out sometime! :D

I'll also hijack this note to add another variant that might be easier to play (or not):

Squares Scrabble

Your tiles are the digits 0-9. (I suppose 10 each, and the value distribution is 1-1-2-2-1-1-1-3-2-1, but feel free to experiment.) Play as in regular Scrabble, but the "words" are the square numbers.

Easily adapted with different sets of words. Triangular numbers? Primes? As long as you don't do something really rare like powers of 2.

Yes i see what you mean, i think i should make some time to do experiments on all these variant and see what i can achieve, thank you for your suggestions
