В  1955 г. в Великобритании и Австралии в продажу поступила игра «Скрэббл»

In the United States, they started selling it after World War II, but it had been invented even earlier – during the Great Depression. Unemployed architect Alfred Butts decided to combine the crossword puzzle that was very popular at that time and anagrams to create a new word game. This simple game consists in making up words from a set of randomly selected letters, but what a level of recognition! Today, they hold Scrabble championships and register records. The Russian name for Scrabble is Erudite and this name is true: if you play a lot, you will become an erudite. You will also improve your spelling skills.
