CHALLENGE RULES:
See this thread for more detailed rules for all CCC challenges.

♦ If you want to participate in this challenge, please sign up by posting a challenge template. This gives us a post to link you to, which you can use to update your books as the challenge progresses.

♦ Unless otherwise noted, books must be at least 150 pages long. (See the link above for rules regarding graphic novels.) Books may only be used for one task in this challenge, but cross-challenge posting is encouraged 🙂 Re-reads are allowed, as long as you read the entire book. You must read at least half of the book AFTER the challenge begins in order to count it for this challenge.

♦ You may use the first letter of the first word in the book’s title (excluding A, An and The) or the author’s first or last initial (middle names or initials can NOT be used).
-In the case of a hyphenated first or last name (i.e. Sarah-Kate LynchKate E. Dyer-Seeley), the first letter of the hyphenated name may be used (not the second initial directly following the hyphen).
-If an author uses what appears to be “two last names” (usually a female author using her maiden name and then her married last name; i.e. Kathy Hogan Trocheck), the last initial of the two names counts since the maiden name is now serving in the place of a “middle” name.

♦ For each book you read, please post a link to the title, and indicate the author and the date you finished reading it. If you don’t, you won’t get credit for completing that task.
* If you don’t know how to post a link to the book title or author, see the instructions here: Add a link to book title or author

♦ If you want the challenge moderator to verify your books as you post updates, please copy/paste your update into a new message . If you do this while you still have the Edit window open, it will copy all of your formatting, etc. too. We don’t have time to scroll back through the entire thread looking for “message #15,” or to follow links back to an original post.

♦ If you use books that are in a language other than English, please translate those titles into English for the purposes of this challenge, unless you plan to use that language for the entire challenge. If you do use another language for the whole challenge, please remember that the translations of exempt words/phrases — for example, A, An and The in this challenge — would be exempt as well.

♦ When you complete the challenge, please post your entire list as a new message. If you do this while you still have the Edit window open, it will copy all of your links and formatting. If you don’t repost your list, your name will not be added to the list of those who have completed the challenge.

NATIONAL SCRABBLE DAY
DURATION : April 1-30, 2021

Scrabble is one of the best selling and most popular board games of all time. In honor of National Scrabble Day, celebrated yearly on April 13 [the birthday of its inventor], this month’s challenge looks a closer look at the game that sends many of us scurrying to the dictionary to verify – or disprove – a word’s existence.

CHALLENGE RULES :
See this thread for more detailed rules for all CCC challenges.
PLEASE NOTE : When we ask for an item shown prominently on the cover, we should be able to see the item in the thumbnail, without having to click through to the book’s page.

♦ If you want to participate in this challenge, please sign up by posting at least a partial list of the challenge requirements. This gives us a post to link you to, which you can use to update your books as the challenge progresses.

♦ Unless otherwise noted, books must be at least 150 pages long. (See the link above for rules regarding graphic novels. Please remember that ONLY graphic novels can be combined.) Books may only be used for one task in this challenge, but cross-challenge posting is encouraged 🙂 Re-reads are allowed, as long as you read the entire book. If you listen to an audiobook, please be sure that the link you post indicates a page count for the book, even if that means linking to an edition different from the one you listened to.

♦ If you use books that are in a language other than English, please translate those titles into English (even if there is no English title here on GR) for the purposes of our challenges, unless you plan to use that language for the entire challenge. If you do use another language for the whole challenge, please remember that the translations of exempt words/phrases — for example, A, An and The — would be exempt as well.

♦ For each book you read, please post a link to the title, and indicate the author and the date you finished reading it. If a challenge task gives several options, please make it clear which option you’ve chosen. If the task calls for an item on the cover or specific author initials or name/s, you must include a link to the book cover and/or author’s name, respectively.
    * If you don’t know how to post a link to the book title, cover or author, see the instructions here: Add a link to the book title, book cover and/or author

♦ When you complete the challenge, please copy and paste your entire list as a new message at the end of the challenge thread. If you do this while you still have the Edit window open, it will copy all of your links and formatting. If you don’t repost your list, with appropriate links, your name will not be added to the list of those who have completed the challenge. Please do NOT simply post a link back to your original post.

THE TASKS :

1. The game of Scrabble was invented by an unemployed architect, Alfred Mosher Butts, in 1933. He combined elements from anagrams and crossword puzzles to create a scoring word game. To figure out how many tiles there should be and how many points each letter should be worth, he calculated letter frequency on the front page of The New York Times. He determined, for example, that Q appears least often in English text, so there should only be one Q tile in the game, and it should be worth the most points.
🅿 Read a book originally published in April; tell us the year OR a book with at least one Q somewhere in its title – Marry in Scandal by Anne Gracie (2018)

2. Scrabble was originally called Lexico and later changed to Criss Cross Words before being called Scrabble by James Brunot, a friend of the inventor. After coining the name Scrabble, Brunot and his wife created a partnership and began manufacturing the game in 1948, giving Butts a royalty on every set sold.
🅿 Read a book whose title has been changed at least once; post a link to both titles OR a book with at least two of these numbers in its page count: 1, 4, 8, 9; tell us how many pages

3. The name Scrabble comes from the words scrabbling, scrabbled and scrabbles – all of which mean to claw or scrape at something frantically. All derive from the Dutch word schrabbelan, which most likely integrated into American speech from Dutch settlers to North America.
🅿 Read a book by an author whose first and last initials can be found in SCHRABBELAN (a letter can only be used as many times as it appears in the word); post a link to the author’s GR page OR a book with a Dutch character (tell us who) or set in the Netherlands (tell us where). – Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

4. On average, more than eight Scrabble games are started every second. Each hour, at least 30,000 game of Scrabble are started. If all the Scrabble tiles ever produced were lined up single file, they would stretch for more than 50,000 miles.
🅿 Read book originally published in a year with a 5 in it; tell us the year OR a book you added to your to-read list on the 3rd of any month; tell us when you added it

5. Scrabble is available in more than 50 languages, as well as a Deluxe version (with large print tiles), a Braille version and even an unofficial Klingon version. Over 150 million copies of the game have been sold worldwide, in more than 120 countries. There are tiles specific to certain countries – in Spanish versions, there’s a single tile that has two Ls, in Catalan a tile has two Ls with a dot in between, and in Dutch, there is a tile that has an I and a J – that look a little odd to players accustomed to the English tiles.
🅿 Read a book that has been translated into at least two additional languages; tell us the languages OR book #5 in a series; tell us the series – Archangel’s Consort by Nalini Singh (English, German & Spanish)

6. There are 124 playable two-letter words in the English game, containing every letter in the alphabet except V. Merriam-Webster notes that the top-scoring Scrabble words (depending on where they’re played) include qi, za, phoney, retinas, xu, zlotty, hook, gyoza, bingo, and amigo. The highest possible score on one turn is 1782, achieved by adding tiles to form the word OXYPHENBUTAZONE across three triple-word scores.
🅿 Read a book whose title begins with V (disregard A, An and The) OR a book with a word in the title that is at least 12 letters long.

7. Scrabble became an American daytime game show, hosted by Chuck Woolery on NBC, which ran from July 1984 to March 1990, then again from January to June in 1993. In 2004, Scrabble was finally inducted into the American National Toy Hall of Fame, joining other great toys and games such as Monopoly, Etch A Sketch, Lego and The Game Boy.
🅿 Read a book that has been made into a TV show (at least one full season); tell us the name of the show if it’s not the same as the book title OR a book with CLASSIC on its main GR page. – Punching the Air by Ibi Zoboi (When They See Us)
