Hey friends! After reworking the design for almost a year, cold-calling Hasbro to get it licensed, and working with Massdrop to make it real, XDA Scrabble is finally here!!

If you have questions, feel free to ask. Until then, here's some info you might find interesting! Every element of the design of this set was taken into careful consideration. The fonts for the letters and numbers match the Scrabble branding down to the width and spacing. The colors were picked from actual Scrabble sets. I went through several individually and picked colors that were about average across them (since it varies depending on when sets were sold). Here's some Pantone color chips taken next to my sunlit window. So, not perfectly color corrected in this shot, but pretty close!

There are several unique buying options for you to have the keyboard of your dreams.
First of all, if you're new to the keyboard world and don't have a board yet to stick the caps on (or if you have a friend or relative you'd like to buy an awesome gift for), we've got a bundle for you to make things easy. You can get the great TKL Code keyboard with brown switches, a keycap puller, a detachable cord, and some extra caps to swap around.

Here's the link to the bundle! https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-hasbro-scrabble-mechanical-keyboard
Also, as a fun thing, if you've ever wanted to play Scrabble with keycaps (who hasn't), we have the fun Scrabble bag set to let you do just that! It has all 100 tiles from a regulation Scrabble set.

And because no Scrabble set is complete without the proper scoring, there's a Novelties set that lets you decorate to your heart's content. Now, I have a soft spot for the ortho keyboard users out there. We made sure to include several options for both Planck and Ergodox users so that they, too, can customize the look of their boards with this set.
I can't wait to see what y'all put together with this set. Thanks for playing!

This is such a delightful set, and the Scrabble game bag just takes the cake! I hope this drop will be hugely successful :)

So cool to see this getting ready for launch. I’m in for at least the game set but probably quite a few other kits

What do we need to complete the Tokyo60 board? Alphas + Modifiers Kit?

You should still consider adding a kit of 1u blanks, in at least the mod color, if no others. They always hit MOQ in symmetric profiles since they help round out the weirdest of layouts for a minimal investment - and they fit your theme, since they'd allow "game boards", as in the post below (https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-hasbro-xda-scrabble-custom-keycap-set/talk/2004048). Either way, huge congrats on taking this all the way through.

If you want to add in more blanks or novelties for a big board, they removed the limit on the number of kits you can get! Just a heads up. ;)
