Scrabble time, literally

I was looking for some scrabble-related stuff last week and found Two Cheeky Monkeys, two clever ladies from down in Eugene who make neat stuff out of old board games and children's books found at thrift stores and yard sales.

This clock made me smile.

Either this classic game was rejected by its owner because the letter distribution was a little off (there's just one letter X per game) and nobody could think up that many words containing the letter X... or the ladies at Two Cheeky Monkeys found a place to buy extra letters.

All of Pam's parents are big Scrabble players and I bet any one of them could use up three Xs and five Vs in a single game, but most people would give up after the words Axe, Xray, Live or Love, and Evil.

Although you could use Vex, and on a triple word bonus that's what? ...a 42-point, three letter word?
Not bad.

Of course, when it's time to play Scrabble, you'd have to keep score in this book.
