I love the idea of doing this on an ortho board. A scrabble bag, a few novelty packs and a lot of blanks needed...
You would only need to buy 8 novelty sets and 4 ergoblanks. Only about $190 so it's totally doable!
The exact XD75 layout pictured above needs 1 Scrabble Bag kit, 3 ErgoBlank kits, and 8 Novelties kits. Total cost: $171 to $205, depending on final kit prices.
Using some blank pink and blue keys from the 3 ErgoBlank kits would reduce this cost. Only 2 Novelties kits would be needed, bringing the cost down to between $111 and $133.
One ErgoBlank kit has 16 blank board squares, so if you used at least 26 letters you could cut out another ErgoBlanks kit. Of course, no need to exactly duplicate the layout of a portion of the Scrabble board. And fewer keycaps are needed on Preonics and Plancks.
Love it, the xd75 matches the Scrabble board perfect with 15 rows, it would be off center on an olkb board. The first word has to go on the star btw. :P
If Massdrop and @cassidoodledoo added a Board Blanks kit, maybe this cost could be reduced even further. (Hint, hint.)
"The first word has to go on the star btw. :P "
I know, but I really wanted to show that keycap. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Actually, I was worried that "Dvorak" wasn't allowed by the rules (no words that are always capitalized). But since 2010, names are allowed - if the players are OK with it.
They allow names now? I can finally play Chuck Norris and win forever!
Now this would be pushing it.
I can't believe I didn't think of this! A lot of planning ahead.
Working on getting some blank caps for ya. ;)
I don't know if you've seen my above post with the possiblity of "!" and "?" being added.
I know it doesn't fit into Scrabble but if it's possible to add the two keycaps without a a significant price increase, I would appreciate it :)
Not a dealbreaker for me. I still plan on picking up the Scrabble bag and this blank set you're hinting at.
You will make even more people very happy!
Hey what did you use to generate that render dvorcol? It looks really good.
I’m a bit embarrassed to admit it is just copy-and-paste.
Don't be embarrassed, it's awesome hahaha
Thank you. I couldn’t find images of some of the keys in my locations, so the edge shading is not always right.
