Scrabble in Estonian

Rahva Raamat, the largest bookstore in Tallinn, had Scrabble games for sale in three languages: Russian, English and Estonian. I already had a Russian version, one of those ancient sets produced in the USA with wooden tiles. A paper flap surrounds the box of these old foreign language versions and it always shows a family dressed to the nines as they play. The version I did not have was Estonian, pictured above. I also got three books on Estonian history, which I will write about in a future book buys blog. I looked around the city’s largest second-hand bookstore, Raamatukoi, but didn’t buy anything. I had my eye on a cheap hardcover unidirectional Estonian-Azerbaijani dictionary, but wisely passed on it.
