I have a lot of board games and a few duplicates, so I put some in the guest rooms rather than just in the sitting room. My "spare" scrabble is in The Cook's Room and has a little note inside it saying "Missing one A" It's stashed in a cupboard that I didn't think most guests even opened.
We had guests staying in that room just before Xmas. She gave a one night stay to her brother as a Xmas gift and he and his wife arrived last night. He hands me an envelope and inside is a note with an "A" scrabble tile taped to it.
I think this has to be the most thoughtful gift I've ever been given.

I've seen loose Scrabble letters for sale. People make jewelry with them.

But is it the same color as the game you have?
I have about 2-1/2 sets of tiles put together in a glass container to play Speed Scrabble (also known as Draw Two). had I known you were missing an A I could have sent you one.
Speed Scrabble
  • If playing with more than two people, dump a few Scrabble sets together.
  • Place all the tiles in the middle of the table, face down.
  • All players draw seven tiles.
  • Someone says "Go" and all players begin assembling their tiles in Scrabble (crossword) fashion.
  • Once someone gets all of their tiles to play they say "Draw Two" and everyone draws two more tiles.
  • When the tiles run out, the first person to play all their tiles is the winner.
I love Speed Scrabble... but I can't get anyone to play it with me...
=)
Kk.

Yes - it is the same color. A perfect match.
I love the idea of speed scabble. Getting DH to play (scrabble) with me is like pulling teeth but he's sweet enough to suggest it once in a while without grimacing.

New words in the Scrabble canon...zzz, qi and za. Just in case you have a z or 2 left over.
