Today in "Things Which Cost A Lot When Greatly Enlarged And Put On Your Wall," is this Scrabble
board from Hammacher Schlemmer.
Covering a whopping 49 square feet, the ad copy claims that there are only nine of these boards in existence, made by artist John Kahn,
which perhaps justify the $12,000 price tag. The board itself is an exact replica of the smaller, table-top version and uses magnetic letters on a steel board for play. Oh, and it's claimed to be the largest Scrabble
board in the world, to boot. While certain to turn some heads, it's probably best that you talk over the purchase of this colossal game board any loved ones you cohabitate with lest you find "I-M L-E-A-V-I-N-G Y-O-U" spelled out one morning. Triple word score.
