Jeff: I Have a Problem with Beatles Scrabble
Just when you thought there couldn’t be any more Beatles related products hitting the stores comes this: Beatles Scrabble.
The game will feature art based and the ‘Anthology’ releases, with green apples on the triple word squares. It can be played with normal Scrabble rules or with special Beatles rules that let players use words associated with the band like B-E-A-T-L-E-S. There are also ‘Help!’ cards for things like swapping tiles with other players. The game retails for about $30.
Here’s my dilemma: I’m as big a Beatles as they come and even own the Beatles version of Trivial Pursuit. The problem is finding anyone to play with me, In seven years that box has been opened once and I won in a rout. Nobody was screaming ‘REMATCH!’ after that.
I can picture it now: a Beatles Scrabble box at my house with a thick layer of dust on it in 2019!
