Unusual 1970s Scrabble Travel Edition by Selchow & Righter (1977)


This travel version of the classic word game is an edition that is uncommon in the UK.  This is the Selchow & Righter version from 1977.  The game itself is in good condition with original case, tile bag, wooden tiles, tile racks and board which is built into the case.  Those with a knowledge of Scrabble will see how different this is from the Spear’s version – it’s the same game, but packaged completely differently. It has some interesting features – the fold out plastic board, the way the tile racks are held in the case for storage, the compartment for storing the tiles and… that bright blue!  There’s none of that staid green colour scheme and cardboard here! It’s brown and bright blue plastic all the way… very 70s.

The outer cardboard sleeve has signs of wear and use and a couple of tears, but it’s condition is reasonable considering. Please note, there are no instructions included in this set, but standard instructions can be easily found online and printed.
