USAopoly Introduces Beatles Scrabble Board Game

The Scrabble Beatles Edition makes its debut this fall, giving Beatles fans an opportunity to interact with the Fab Four in a whole new way. The Scrabble Beatles Edition fits the bill for fans who have a way with words.

Completely customized with Anthology-informed design, the game sports black Scrabble letter tiles, a themed tile bag and specialized grey racks. And what makes this game really unique? The Scrabble game can still be played the traditional way, but fans can now infuse Beatles-inspired words into their game play for an altogether different Scrabble experience. Twenty-six HELP! cards accompany this alternative game play allowing players opportunities to impact scoring, strategy, and their opponent’s fates.
