A suggestion has just been put to me for a new variation to that old favourite Scrabble.

What if the pieces are INTERCAL keywords and you have to produce valid statements instead of valid words. Your score would depend on which keywords you use. There is no bonus for elegance.

For a final twist on scrabble you can use a dictionary to check a word while in this game you would have to explain what it does before scoring.

Maybe it should be a computer game so you can compile your statements to verify validity.
