Scrabble has always been a fun game of both strategy and spelling skills. But now Gen Z wokesters are ruining the game, apparently because they can’t spell and that makes the game mean to them because it’s too hard.

Apparently, Gen Zers are upgrading the venerable tile game by downgrading it and pretty much taking out the competition part of the game.

If you have never played, the idea is that the letter tiles each have a value on them. And when you make a word, you add up the values to total up your points for the word. The one with the most points at the end of the game wins. The strategy comes in where certain squares on the board can give you extra points if your tile lands on them while you are making your word. So, your strategy is to try and utilize those spaces to gain even more points.

It’s a pretty simple game, really. The difficult part is visualizing the words that you can make with your tiles.

But it can be competitive. Gaining as many points as possible is the goal, so there must be a winner and a loser when all is said and done.

Ah, but for the folks he spent their whole lives being told how special they are and getting their fancy little participation trophies just for showing up, losing is just too bitter.

And now, Mattel, the maker of the game, is eliminating the scoring part for the delicate Gen Zers who just can’t stomach the concept of winners and losers.

According to the New York Post, Mattel is making a new version of their ages-old game:

For the first time in 75 years, Mattel is making a major change to the iconic board game Scrabble — and touting a “No More Scoring” gameplay option.

The new launch is a double-sided version of the famous board game — one side with the original game for those who want to stick to the long-time traditional version, and one side with a “less competitive” version to appeal to Gen Z gamers.

The flip side of the classic game, called Scrabble Together, will include helper cards, use a simpler scoring system, be quicker to play and allow people to play in teams

“The makers of Scrabble found that younger people, Gen Z people, don’t quite like the competitive nature of Scrabble,” said Gyles Brandreth, who co-hosts the language podcast Something Rhymes With Purple. “They want a game where you can simply enjoy language, words, being together and having fun creating words.”

God forbid this nation ever has another war because if these delicate snowflakes get their little tummies upset over Scrabble, what will they do when someone is shooting at them?

This nation really has bred the worst generations over the last 40 years.
