Scrabble was originally created in 1938 by Alfred Mosher Butts under the name “Criss-Crosswords.” Eventually, the name was changed, and the game reached wider distribution when it was discovered by Macy’s president Jack Straus in 1952. He ordered it to stock in his store and it became a “must have” game. It’s still a beloved game today across the world, with over 150 million sets sold. It’s currently available in 121 countries in 29 different languages.
