Probably you have played loads of Scrabble on your high-tech gadgets or you might have owned our earlier featured Swarovski studded Scrabble board, but playing Hammacher Schlemmer’s world’s largest wall mounted Scrabble board will be a different experience all together. Handmade by John Kahn, creator of colossal pop art and a renowned multimedia artist, these Scrabble boards are rare, as only nine exists.

World's largest scrabble game

Scrabble lovers have to splash out $12,000 to get to play this world’s most expensive and massive Scrabble Game at home, which spans over 49 feet square, and is nearly five times the size of a normal game. Russian birch plywood is meticulously used to construct this scrabble game which is laminated with galvanized steel sheet of .023 gauge. Covered by a heavy vinyl print protected with satin laminate, this quality constructed product is built to last for generations. The two felt-lined birch tile racks stands on each side of the board, and accepts 50 of the 100 included tiles. Each tile is just over four inches square and is black embellished, constructed with birch plywood that conceals a rare earth magnate to hold it on the board which attaches to a wall with included hardware.
