If you’ve got some money to burn and if Scrabble happens to be your favorite game in the world, then you might want to check out the World’s Largest Scrabble Game. And when we say the world’s largest, we really do mean the world’s largest–and possibly quite the most expensive version of Scrabble you can find.
The World’s Largest Scrabble Game is figuratively off-the-wall and literally on the wall. There are only nine of these in existence, all handmade by John Kahn, who is a well-known mixed media artists and colossal pop art creator. A lot of craftsmanship and work went into making each of these boards, which is probably why the price tag is also as massive as the size of the game itself.

Spanning over 49′ sq.–nearly 5x the size of the original–this is the world’s largest wall-mounted Scrabble game. Meticulously constructed from Russian birch plywood, the 3/4″-deep back board is overlaid with the classic purple-hued background of the original game, laminated with a .023-gauge galvanized steel sheet, and covered by a heavy vinyl print of the playing board which is protected by a satin laminate. Bordered by a 3/4″ x 2 1/2″ birch frame that wraps from the front to the back, the board attaches to a wall with included hardware.
The World’s Largest Scrabble Game is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $12,000.
