There are three Scrabble costumes.  One is an extra large board that has words related to Halloween already spelled out on the board.  It can be worn by either a man or a woman.  The other two are both sexy halloween costumes for women.  One is a sexy scrabble dress that emphasizes the woman’s body much more than it accurately replicates the traditional scrabble board.  The other is frequently known as dirty words because it includes a number of flirty and love oriented language pre-placed on the game.  They aren’t particularly naughty, so I’m not sure who came up with the dirty words description.  But it has stuck on the red scrabble costume dress.

I’ve seen that some of these costumes come with scrabble tile bracelets and a petticoat that uses letter tiles.  If you are looking for extra accessories for your Scrabble costume, look for them from your halloween costume supplier.

About Scrabble

Scrabble was invented in 1938 by Alfred Mosher Butts, an architect that set out to create a game that took advantage of the popularity of crossword puzzles.  He famously used the New York Times to conduct a frequency analysis to determine the number of tiles and point values for each letter.  Although a few copies were sold, game manufacturers decided not to purchase it and the popularity of the game wouldn’t come until years later.

In 1949, James Brunot took over the game, changed some rules and gave it the name which would it would come to be known by millions.  It received its big break when the President of Macy’s, Jack Strauss, played the game on vacation and ordered copies to be sold at his stores.  Selchow and Righter purchased the game that year when Brunot and his employees were unable to keep up with demand.

The game stills sells between a million and two million copies each year.  It was the source of a six year television game show in the 1980s and it is rumored to be the subject of an upcoming game show.  The internet has actually increased the popularity of the game, as social networking and mobile applications have increased the number of word games played between friends.
