Scrapple Picture

 


 

Rules:

 

  1. 2 Players start on the bottom right square (with tokens of their choosing).
  2. Players take turns.
  3. Each player rolls a six-sided die to determine the number of spaces he/she must move.
  4. After moving, the player must create an English word (per Scrabble rules) with the letters in his/her field of opportunity. The field of opportunity is defined as the row and column in which the player's piece lies.
  5. If the player lands on a red square, he/she may choose from both player's field of opportunity.
  6. A Player may not receive points for a word that has already been created in the same game.
  7. The points awarded for a word is the total of the individual letter points in the word.
  8. The first player to 50 points wins the game


 

Potential Future Modifications

 

  • An electronic version would allow for randomness in generating the board and would be easier to play with different rules.
  • Creating the individual blocks as magnetic tiles, then overlaying them on a magnet sheet, might be an interesting way to construct a more dynamic game in a physical format.
    • This physical game could have transparent red (or some other color) squares to overlay on regular squares to create the "powerup" squares.

I didn't get to play this game during class and - upon reading the rule set - would very much like to do so.

This game was fun because it uses the same idea as scrabble. Unless you are blind to simple words such as "quiz" and "quarts" like I am, it was appropriately challenging and interesting. Good job!
