Two British fans of the Scrabble board game celebrated the game's 60th anniversary in a unique way: They played a game in mid-air skydiving.
Skydivers Nicole Angelides and Ramsey Kent, both avid fans of Scrabble, joined a worldwide celebration of the game’s 60th anniversary. The pair played the game in mid-air using a reinforced wooden board and adhesive pieces.
Angelides told the Daily Mail they had fun playing a short game of scrabble. But she didn’t say who won the game.
Other places where celebrations occurred included the interior of a lion cage in Africa, an alligator park in Florida, and a cliff overlooking the sea in North Wales.
More than 150 million Scrabble sets have been produced since American architect Alfred Mosher Butts came up with the concept in 1938.
Scrabble is also popular on the internet.
