Yip, there is a portion of the thread that lapses into unscramble but a lot of threads crossover with others from time to time and it wouldnt be practical to merge them whenever that happens. Hopefully folk stick to filling in the blanks, which is where here ended up, and a quick stay-on-topic reigns it in if it veers off.

Scrabble would only work if we used a fixed-width font here on the forum. We have a variable-width one so it’s hard to get everything to line up.

Here’s some text using Courier, a fixed-width font. If people want to quote it and add/amend it to start a game that’s fine. I’m not sure how easy it’d be to keep a game going though.

T E X T I N H E R E

For anyone curious, most modern typefaces are variable-width. That means, for example, the width of a letter like i or l is less than m or w. With fixed-width fonts it’d be the same width for each letter: ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
