Not as fun as it sounds (to a nerd).
That may be why, months after we started this game and paused mid-way with the promise of picking it back up again soon… we have not.
Part of the problem is that we played with an English rather than a French set of letters. The number of tiles of each letter corresponds with how often that letter is used within the language, and the points for each letter are higher the rarer the letter is within the language. The English set caters to the English language; the French set would have been totally different. Which meant that even the fluent French speaker in our group was stumped when it came to forming remotely high-scoring words.
For fellow board game nerds:
One thought on “Scrabble en français”
Use your letters F,E,R and the i of “DINE”, you get 2 words:
FIER (F, triple letter 🙂 ) and MAREE
Who is the next one?!
