Local is lekker with Scrabble

The classic family-favourite word-forming game, has now launched a local version with over 150 proudly South African words included in the game. 

After years of research and development, to tailor this game to local culture, heritage and pride, Scrabble South Africa is finally available nationwide. Scrabble has been a staple in the collection of board games in households across the country, and now provides players with the chance to connect to the words and terms that make the South African vocabulary so colourful.

This special edition lets players enjoy a local twist on their Chance Cards, with koeksisters and Chakalaka while Strength Cards feature Shongololos and Bunny Chow, just to name a few.

The packaging of the Scrabble South Africa is also incredibly unique. Adorned with symbols of local pride, including the Springbok, the national flower, the King Protea, as well as National landmarks like Table Mountain, the Scrabble South Africa is a physical representation of the phrase ‘Local is Lekker’.
