Examining the past, present and future of Scrabble through amazing immersive experiences in each giant 3D Scrabble tile! 👨👩👧👧
What innovation Scrabble can look forward to in the next 70 years? The pop-up introduces a specially-designed one-off, futuristic Space Edition Scrabble, made from meteoritic rock and magnetic tiles to defy gravity. The space board contains 5 grams of meteorite, with a total weight of 180g. With the use of magnetic materials inserted, it will be displayed in the experience “floating” as it would in anti-gravity space.
At the International Space Station, astronauts are encouraged to practice little habits and activities that remind them of home. Psychologists recognise such behaviour as being fundamental to maintaining an astronaut’s mental health and peace of mind. Playing Scrabble is one of the most popular of these spacetime activities, but there’s just one problem: no gravity.
The pop-up is just one piece on the board of 70th celebrations, that include a cultural film that brings together the UK’s brightest and most interesting young wordsmiths – rappers, poets and writers – to explore the evolution of language and words through the lens of Scrabble!
You can purchase the special edition 70th Anniversary Scrabble board online and in Westfield London (Shepherds Bush) at The Entertainer, Argos outside the centre and online.

This Christmas nearly half of Brits are expected to receive an unwanted gift card or voucher, resulting in £300million of wasted and unused money!
For one day only, in the new year, a special ‘Cash or Kind’ popup shop will give you the chance to swap unwanted gift cards or vouchers for the equivalent amount in pounds to spend on something you really want.
If you’re feeling charitable you can donate your gift card value to charity. Everyone who donates will not only be giving money to a good cause, but Zeek will match the donation.
