Your Cart is Empty
1. You can fit only 7 letters on a rack
This means you will need create a placecard for certain guests using their nickname or a shortened version of their name, for example, "Kate" instead of "Katherine". If you have multiple Jessicas you might need to have Jess M, Jess D and Jess T etc.
2. There are 100 tiles in a pack of Scrabble
Even if you could use every letter provided in the pack, with up to 7 letters for every guest, at best you would have enough tiles for 14 guests (100 tiles / 7 letters for guest names = 14.2 guest names).
If you have 100 guests, you may need up to 7 x sets.
3. First check the number of consonants you will need
The largest number of consonants provided per letter per set of 100 Scrabble tiles are 6 x Rs, 6 x Ns and 6 x Ts.
But there's only 1 x K.
Even if you have only 10 guests, but a Nick and a Kate, you'll need at least 2 x sets to get the 2 x Ks.
In another example, there are 4 x Ss per 100 tiles. Jessica is a very popular name so you would use all 4 x "S" tiles for just two Jessicas attending your event.
4. You need a lot more vowels than you think
There are, for example, 9 x As in a pack of 100 tiles. But if you have a guest name like Nathan, this immediately uses up 2 x As.
