I have a bag of Scrabble tiles with no numeric values, only letters
About 20 years ago I purchased what I thought was a bag of Scrabble tiles. They look exactly like Scrabble tiles but they only have the letter - there's no numeric value next to the letter. Are these considered actual scrabble tiles, or were they from some other game perhaps?Hi - You can be certain that these are not Scrabble tiles. There are lots of games that have copied Scrabble's concept of lettered-tiles, but they do not copy the numerical subscripts for fear of copyright infringement. Bananagrams is a modern example (see the picture at the top of this post). It sounds like you've come across an older one.
I appreciate any information you can give me!
Neither Hasbro nor Mattel (the current owners of Scrabble), nor any of their predecessors, have ever released Scrabble with number-less tiles. In fact, it's hard to imagine how such a game would work.
I hope that helps.
