I love playing games when traveling. I always carry a deck of cards and a minature backgammon board in my carry-0n. It might not be touched during most flights, but on those interminable flights overseas or stuck in an airport due to bad weather and other flight delays, they sure come in handy.
I was delighted to find a website that will allow you to create a disposalble Scrabble Game to take with you on the road. Since the full game is pretty heavy and cumbersome, this sounded delightful. I had to check it out.
You can open or print one of two different “boards” and “letters”. I chose the PDF version. Print it and cut out all the pieces and you are ready to go. A color printer makes it colorful, but you can print it out in black and white, too. I printed out a couple copies to keep in my carry-on in large envelope so I can pull it out when I need it. It takes up very little space and is the weight of a couple of pieces of paper. Perfect traveling game.
