I grew up playing board games like Trouble, Sorry, Shoots and Ladders, and SCRABBLE with my grandparents all the time growing up. It would be a staple for all of us cousins. In fact, it was a rite of passage. Those games would get intense. We would use to say "If we could only monetize playing board games." Well, an opportunity has popped up - The SCRABBLE Blitz Tournament in Lagrange!
