First draw out a grid of 15 rows and 15 columns on a piece of wood or cardboard. Make sure they are the same size as your Scrabble tiles. Next place the triple word score spots on the board. Color the top left, middle and right hand square red along the top.

Well there is no correct layout for the scrabble board. You can place it anyway and take turns according to a draw. There is no correct way otherwise it would have been in a manual. You can place the board however you want and put the pieces in one direction.

Start by setting word on the center square, then the rest build off that. All letters have to make a word in whatever direction they're touching.

When you play scrabble, The person to lay down the first word should begin by putting it across the middle of the board across the pink square in the middle.

The idea of scrabble is to conjoin existing words with new ones. As this becomes progressively more difficult as the game goes on, more points are gathered the further you are from the centre starting point of the board. So double letter points are nearest the middle, then double words, then triple letters. Triple words are furthest from centre.

The scrabble board is a set piece of folding cardboard that is preprinted. When you have four players there can be a dispute about which way the board should face. The player that is looking at the board upside down is at a disadvantage. Solve this by haaving a spinning Lazy Susan under the board so it can move.
