373 Diagabble

Scrabble played diagonally instead of vertically/horizontally.

∏∏∏∏∏∏∏L∏∏∏
∏∏∏∏∏∏∏∏O∏∏
∏∏∏∏∏∏∏∏∏N
∏∏∏∏∏∏∏∏∏∏G

This Scrabble variant is incredibly difficult. Letters can be played only diagonally, but words can form diagonally, horizontally, and vertically. In the above example, the word BEST was played first, followed by the letters for OOLONG, which also formed the words SO and TO horizontally.

I like this idea much more in theory than in practice, it wasn’t all that fun when tested out.
