‘Bling’ – Triple Word Score – 13,000 Points…

28 October 2008

…or rather pounds. That’s the estimated value of this diamond-encrusted Diamond Anniversary Scrabble set, uniquely made to celebrate the 60th birthday of the eternally-popular board game.

It's made from more than 30,000 Swarovski crystals, each of which were applied individually by hand, and it’s up for grabs on eBay until Thursday, with all proceeds going to a children’s research hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

Expect a flurry of last-minute bids from high-rolling rappers or Premier League footballers with a cash/sense imbalance. That is, if they can figure out how eBay works before the auction closes.
