I really like this idea! Garage sales, flea markets, and thrift stores sell board games very cheap! I want to make one of these for someone as a gift.

Wow, that is so sooooo adorable. I really need to go to a thrift store now.

You could probbably also do that with a checkers board and checker pieces. Goodness knows I have about a thousand of those at my house. *Goes and looks through game cupboard*

Thanks for the great idea!!

I've scored a buttload of Scrabble games at garage sales last summer.

I turned the excess tiles and tile holders for name plates for my kids doors.

I've been thinking of taking a bunch of tiles and gluing them to something clear, like a peice of plastic and putting a messing in the back window of my van with some clear packing tape.  ( I drive an Econoline, which is suppose to have bizarre messages and bumper stickers on it. It is a rule, I think.)

Not sure what the message would be, but it would be funny.

Any ideas on what to do with old puzzles? There are always a million of those at the thrift store, whereas the games (scrabble esp, it seems) are in hot demand. 

Puzzle pieces make great jewelry components...you could varnish them (or paint them with Mod Podge or white glue to seal them) drill a small hole, add an earwire for an earring or link together with jumprings to make a bracelet.

I put my extra tile/thumbtacks in a clear mason jar and sit it nearby. A clear jar works best so I can tell which letter I'm grabbing. I get such a kick out of changing them often.

i saw an ad in readymade for this stuff urban outfitters is going to be selling.  it's some sort of magnetic paint.  i'm not sure what color it's going to be, but if it comes clear, then you could paint the scrabble board with it and use it as a magnet board with the scrabble tiles.  then you don't have to worry about poking too many holes in the board with tacks. 

of course, if the magnetic paint turns out to be black then don't i feel silly.
