The Evening Post: How Modern Language Breaks Scrabble

Geek Alabama Evening Post

Tonight, I am presenting the latest episode from the YouTube channel PBS Game/Show.  As language has changed over the years, Scrabbles’s famous point system has become flawed. The commonness of letters has changed, allowing savvy players to “beat the system” and gain an advantage over the average player. So what do you think? Should the system be updated for modern language to level the playing field, or does this extra layer of strategy add to the excitement of the game?  Enjoy!
