Building up your vocabulary by playing interesting words-games is a useful way to employ fun, excitement and learning all together. Scrabble Game has been one of the most essential games, played all across the world, with letters available in several different languages, besides English. There are special Scrabble competitions held, not just within families to compete tough, but within schools and even nationally and internationally.

Now, Scrabble board has gone high-tech with Mind Sports International giving its own innovative touch to the word-game. For the company's new festival being held in Prague from December 1 to 4, the company has introduced a Hi Tech Scrabble board that has been built with RFID chips in each tile. This helps in detecting where each letter is placed and transmit data online immediately.

It consists of sophisticated tracking technology and all 100 letter tiles have a unique RFID tag. There are nine circuit boards connected to 225 RFID antennas. All of this technologizing of the Scrabble board has cost Mind Sports International a considerable amount of £20,000 (about US$31,800). All this much money must be worth something in its delivery too. Thus, the price tag along makes it the world's most expensive Scrabble board ever.

Also, it might not get any customers in the market place, the idea is not for the whole sale, but to test how much technology can support a brilliant mind sport game. It will surely attract the online viewers that the tournament is looking forward to. And those who are already fans of Scrabble will be delighted to see their favorite game get an upgrade.
