Scrabble updates rules to allow use of proper nouns
From The BBC:
The rules of word game Scrabble are being changed for the first time in its history to allow the use of proper nouns, games company Mattel has said.
Place names, people’s names and company names or brands will now count.
Mattel, which brings out a new version of the game containing amended rules in July, hopes the change will encourage younger people to play.
The Daily Mail already reports that some fans are angry, including the one who said: “They’re dumbing down a classic.”
