Playing Scrabble with a Theme

Regular Scrabble, although great, can be made more fun with a theme. Give bonus points when someone comes up with a word directly relating to the theme. For example, if the theme is science fiction and the word is robot, that player receives an extra 10 points.

Make the ground rules clear at the beginning though. In other words, science fiction can be "read", but that isn't directly related, is it? We've also played the game with words not found in the dictionary. The rule is that you have to justify the word. Too many vowels? Use 'eieio'. The justification is 'Old MacDonald Had a Farm' song. You get the idea.

Now, that's a creative twist on an old favorite! Thumb's up for your "out-of-the-box" thinking.
