Equipment

Tournament SCRABBLE players use some specialized equipment, including rotating boards with grids to hold the tiles in place, clocks to account for the 25 minutes allotted to each player in a game, and tournament-quality tiles, which have a smooth surface so that identifying letters and blanks by feel is less likely. You may wish to visit a SCRABBLE club and get an idea of the different kinds of equipment that are available before making a purchase. Following are links to some equipment suppliers, listed alphabetically by the first name/corporate name of the supplier.
