  17. History
  18. Alfred Mosher Butts  In 1931, Alfred Mosher Butts translated his lifelong love of crossword puzzles into a board game.  A key to the game was Butts’ analysis of the English language. Butts studied the front page of the New York Times to calculate how frequently each letter of the alphabet was used.  He then used each letter’s frequency to determine how many of each letter he would include in the game. 18
  19. Alfred Mosher Butts  He included only four “S” tiles so that the ability to make words plural would not make the game too easy.  Butts initially called the game “Lexico”, but later changed the name to “Criss Cross Words” after considering “It”, and began to look for a buyer.  The game makers he originally contacted rejected the idea, but Butts was tenacious. 19
  20. James Brunot  Eventually, in 1948, he sold the rights to entrepreneur and game-lover James Brunot, who made a few minor adjustments to the design and renamed the game “scrabble”, a word meaning “to grape frantically” (from the Dutch “Schrabben”, to scrape or scratch. 20
