Scrabble's makers to allow proper nouns - Telegraph

The games company said it would be introducing the rule change – the first in the game's 62 year history – to "enable younger players" to get involved.

This could cause a power shift between the generations, with those possessing a keen knowledge of the top 40 singles' chart legitimately able to cite such high-scoring examples as singers N-Dubz (17 points) and Jay-Z (23 points).

What would my Granny say?
