FUCK, this makes me so fucking angry. I know this thread will be relevent to maybe five people here, but to those five people, this is a HUGE shock. Scrabble soon to allow proper nouns in gameplay: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1263658/Scrabble-upset-purists-proper-noun-rule-change.html
I just can’t get over it. Almost literally anything will be a word; can’t you just claim it’s someone’s name? Everything is technically a name. WTF will happen to the Scrabble Dictionary? Will there be separate versions of the game?
This royally pisses me off because I am planning to play in my first tournament soon, and with these new rules ANYONE can win. God, I’m so upset. I am just getting very good at this game and they say fuck you to the entire concept? Why even have Scrabble anymore? Holy shit I am so mad.
Not only that…
“Worse still, not only will the names of places, trademarks and people be permissible, but even words spelled backwards or placed unconnected to other pieces.”
… it’s not even a game anymore if the words are unconnected. Hello, it’s everyone’s favorite CROSSWORD game for a reason.
