Featured Thing!

Description

These are drop in replacement tiles for the famous scrabble game by Parker Brothers. What these tiles provide is a hexadecimal set of characters, with point values corresponding to their numeric values. This should provide for truly universal language support in scrabble. Any player can feel free to deploy their words now as they would in any other version of scrabble, only now they have their choice of encoding types. Including full unicode support!

now all we need is klingon and vulcan versions of scrabble

That was also my first thought, and the second was how would you do that (as in Hexagonal grid)!? But you meant hexadecimal of course. The third thought is that this is also very cool to use 0x0 to 0xF as Scrabble numbers. Base 16 all the way :)

Instructions

I cut these on 5mm wood on an epilog mini.

I'd use the cdr.

Very cool.

Seeing the title, however, I thought you created a Scrabble-esque game that was laid out on a hex grid. That would be really cool, if not impossible.
