the silent ‘Q’

Rhinos are not good at SCRABBLE, since We can neither spell nor count. We like the little tiles though, and the board is pretty. One advantage Rhinos do have: We play equally well in all 29 languages SCRABBLE comes in.

In RhinO there are a lot more silent letters than in the Reader’s alphabet, which explains a lot.

Mr. Alfred M. Butts invented SCRABBLE in 1938. Today is his birthday (1899). It seems fitting to salute him, as he has provided a lot of good times to YIR‘s Readership.
