This board is nearly 5 times the size of the original game board, which makes this the world’s largest wall-mounted Scrabble game. One of only nine in existence. The board is handmade by John Kahn, renowned mixed media artist and creator of colossal pop art.
Meticulously constructed from Russian birch plywood, the 3/4″-deep back board is overlaid with the classic purple-hued background of the original game, laminated with a .023-gauge galvanized steel sheet, and covered by a heavy vinyl print of the playing board which is protected by a satin laminate.
Bordered by a 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ birch frame that wraps from the front to the back, the board attaches to a wall with included hardware.
The two 6′ H x 5 5/8″ W x 7″ D birch tile racks are grooved and lined with felt, each accepting 50 of the included 100 tiles. Made from a 3/8″ x 5/16″ rare earth magnet sandwiched between two pieces of birch plywood, each 4 3/8″ sq. x 3/8″ thick tile’s letter is sandblasted to a depth of 1/64″, lacquered in black, sanded, and clear-coated to a finish that will last for generations.
Board and racks: 88 1/2″ H x 99 1/4″ W x 7″ D. (12 3/4 lbs.)
The specs are boring we know…but by seeing the specs you can appreciate just how well crafted this massive Scrabble game truly is.
