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.
