To celebrate the 60th (Diamond) Anniversary of the popular board game, Hasbro Inc. is auctioning off a one-of-a-kind SCRABBLE: Swarovski Encrusted Board Edition, featuring more than 30,000 Swarovski crystals.

Each of the 30,000 glittering crystals is hand-selected to perfectly match the Diamond Anniversary edition of Scrabble, which will be available soon from all the usual retailers.

As for this sparkling edition, there is just one, and it’s selling here on eBay.



The auction started on October 20th and will close on October 30th. The specially commissioned board has an estimated value of $20,000 and all proceeds will benefit St. Jude’s Research Hospital.

The board was the centerpiece of an exclusive celebrity SCRABBLE tournament held in June and took center stage as celebrities vied for the coveted title of SCRABBLE Celebrity Double Champions.

The board comes with a commemorative plaque signed by the celebrity players -Jimmy Kimmel, Daniel Kellison, Seth Green and Skeet Ulrich – who faced off in the final match up played on the board.
