Crowdfunding an official, licensed Scrabble mechanical keyboard

On the crowdfunding site Massdrop, board-game fan Cassidy Williams is taking preorders for a $160 Scrabble-themed mechanical keyboard with Cherry MX Brown switches (if you've got a mechanical keyboard kicking around that you'd like to convert, you can get the $47 keycap set instead).

Williams got the license from Hasbro after relentless cold-calling, and has included the letter scores on each keycap; for an additional $40, they'll include a Scrabble tile-bag loaded with 100 keycaps to match a standard Scrabble set, so you can play an actual game with keycaps.

Orders are open for 27 days, starting today.
