Welsh Scrabble
15/52 for the group 2016 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: O is for Out of Order

I've arranged the letter tiles in the order of the Welsh alphabet -- at least at the start! It goes a little wrong at the end of the row. :)

In case you were wondering, CH and DD count as single letters in Welsh (as do ff, ng, ph, rh and th) so the alphabet goes:

a b c ch d dd e f ff g ng h i j l ll m n o p ph r rh s t th u w y

I had no idea there was Welsh Scrabble. Thank you for enlightening me :-)

It's not just Welsh has different letters, it's that the frequency of the letters is different and that's reflected in the letter score. Also Welsh just doesn't have K, Q, X or Z, so you'd have to pull those letters out before starting the game or whoever picked them up would be forever stuck with them!

In a quizz I do sometimes on my ipad, there was the question where the place with the longest name is Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch ....somewho it reminded me of you

Welsh scrabble! Now that is very cool.

It would be a great teaching tool, as well ...
