Many editions of the word board game Scrabble vary in the letter distribution of the tiles, because the frequency of each letter of the alphabet is different for every language. As a general rule, the rarer the letter the more points it is worth.

Many languages use sets of 102 tiles, since the original distribution of one hundred tiles was later augmented with two blank tiles.

English-language editions of Scrabble contain 100 letter tiles, in the following distribution:

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: E ×12, A ×9, I ×9, O ×8, N ×6, R ×6, T ×6, L ×4, S ×4, U ×4
• 2 points: D ×4, G ×3
• 3 points: B ×2, C ×2, M ×2, P ×2
• 4 points: F ×2, H ×2, V ×2, W ×2, Y ×2
• 5 points: K ×1
• 8 points: J ×1, X ×1
• 10 points: Q ×1, Z ×1

When Alfred Butts invented the game, he initially experimented with different distributions of letters.[1]

A full English-language set.

A new Mattel-licensed product, Super Scrabble, was launched in 2004. This set is composed of 200 tiles, in this distribution:

• 4 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: E ×24, A ×16, O ×15, T ×15, I ×13, N ×13, R ×13, S ×10, L ×7, U ×7
• 2 points: D ×8, G ×5
• 3 points: C ×6, M ×6, B ×4, P ×4
• 4 points: H ×5, F ×4, W ×4, Y ×4, V ×3
• 5 points: K ×2
• 8 points: J ×2, X ×2
• 10 points: Q ×2, Z ×2

The over- and underlines indicate modifications from the original distribution, with overlines indicating more than double the original distribution, and underlines indicating fewer.

## Afrikaans

Afrikaans editions use these 102 tiles:

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: E ×16, A ×9, I ×8, N ×8, D ×6, O ×6, R ×6, S ×6, T ×6
• 2 points: G ×4, H ×3, L ×3
• 3 points: K ×3, W ×3
• 4 points: M ×2, U ×2, Y ×2
• 5 points: P ×2, V ×2
• 8 points: B ×1, F ×1
• 10 points: J ×1

Afrikaans uses the letters Z and X, but so infrequently that there are no tiles for them in the standard set. A blank can still be used as a Z or an X. There are also no tiles for C and Q as these letters are not used at all in Afrikaans, except for in a few loanwords.

## Arabic

Arabic Scrabble letters

Arabic-language editions use the following 100 tiles:

Although Arabic letters have up to four forms, Scrabble tiles only make use of the isolated form. This pattern of composing words is also found in Arabic crosswords and is one of the rare situations when Arabic letters are not connected to each other.

## Armenian

Armenian-language editions use the following 146 tiles:[2] This version is called ԲԱՈ ԽԱՆ (bao khagh, meaning words game) and is not an official edition by Mattel.

• 3 blank tiles (which use 0 points)

C, Q, and X are absent because they are only used in loanwords or, in the case of C, the digraphs CH and C'H. Diacritical marks are ignored.

## Bulgarian

Bulgarian-language Scrabble sets, which use Cyrillic letters, use the following 102 tiles:

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)

## Catalan

A full Catalan-language set.

Catalan-language editions use these 100 tiles.

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: E ×13, A ×12, I ×8, R ×8, S ×8, N ×6, O ×5, T ×5, L ×4, U ×4

• 8 points: H ×1, J ×1, Q ×1, Z ×1
• 10 points: Ç ×1, L·L ×1, NY ×1, X ×1

Accents and diaereses are ignored; for example, À is played as A. Nevertheless, there are special tiles for the C with cedilla Ç (ce trencada), the sign L·L representing the geminated ell (ela geminada), as well as the digraph NY. Playing an N tile followed by a blank tile to form the digraph NY is not allowed. Official rules treat the Q tile as just one letter, but usually Catalan players use the Q tile like the QU digraph and all Catalan Scrabble Clubs use this de facto rule.[1] (Catalan) K, W, and Y are absent because they are only used in loanwords or, in the case of Y, the digraph NY.

Furthermore, it had only 1 F and only 4 S tiles; and the face value of the G was only 2 points. The Flemish version never had IJ tiles, it was as described above. The Dutch version is now in line with the Flemish one. Instead of the IJ letter a combination of the I and J is now used.

Another Dutch version prior to March 1998 consisted of these 100 tiles:

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: E ×16, N ×8, A ×6, O ×6, I ×4

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points).
• 1 point: A ×8, E ×8, I ×8, O ×8, N ×6, R ×6, S ×6, L ×4, T ×4, U ×4

## Estonian

Estonian-language editions consist of the following 102 tiles:

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: A ×10, E ×9, I ×9, S ×8, T ×7, K ×5, L ×5, O ×5, U ×5

The distribution lacks C, Q, W, X, and Y, since they are used in foreign words. Arguably F, Š, Z, and Ž are not used natively in Estonian, but they are included as they are used for borrowed words.

This distribution lacks Q, Š, W, X, Z, Ž, and Å, since they are rare in Finnish.

## French

A complete French Scrabble set

French-language editions of Scrabble contain these 102 tiles:

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: E ×15, A ×9, I ×8, N ×6, O ×6, R ×6, S ×6, T ×6, U ×6, L ×5

## German

German-language editions of Scrabble contain 102 letter tiles, in the following distribution:

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: E ×15, N ×9, S ×7, I ×6, R ×6, T ×6, U ×6, A ×5, D ×4
• 2 points: H ×4, G ×3, L ×3, O ×3
• 3 points: M ×4, B ×2, W ×1, Z ×1

• 6 points: Ä ×1, J ×1, Ü ×1, V ×1
• 8 points: Ö ×1, X ×1
• 10 points: Q ×1, Y ×1

Note that the letter ß (Eszett) is not used. This is due to the fact that it does not exist as a capital letter in German. While a majuscule ß (see Capital ß) has been established in the context of computing (Unicode), ß is replaced by SS when capitalizing, according to German orthography (e. g. Straße [street]: STRASSE). However, the umlauts Ä, Ö and Ü must not be replaced by AE, OE or UE when playing (as would usually be done in German crosswords where ß is also replaced by SS). Other diacritics which may occur in some foreign words are ignored (é = E, œ = OE etc.)[8]

Before 1989–1990, German sets had 119 tiles. Players had eight tiles at a time on their racks, as opposed to the standard seven today. The old letter distribution was:

Note that H is not in this set because it is only used at the beginning of the words starting with vowels, which is against the rules there. Note: This set uses the old orthography. In the new orthography, the dotted letters are replaced by the digraph of the letter without the dot followed by H.

## Italian

Italian-language sets use these 120 tiles:

• 1 point: O ×13, A ×13, I ×13, E ×13
• 2 points: N ×6, R ×6, S ×6, T ×6

## Latin

There are three kinds of Latin-language Scrabble sets developed by three authorities in the language.

The first distribution, developed by the Centre for Medieval Studies of the University of Toronto, uses these 100 tiles:

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: E ×12, A ×9, I ×9, V ×9, S ×8, T ×8, R ×7, O ×5
• 2 points: C ×4, M ×4, N ×4, D ×3, L ×3
• 3 points: Q ×3
• 4 points: B ×2, G ×2, P ×2, X ×2
• 8 points: F ×1, H ×1

The second distribution below was made "in conjunction with scholars from the University of Cambridge and elsewhere, together with the Cambridge Schools Classics Project." This distribution distinguishes U from V, with the semi-vocalic V scoring five times the points. Y is absent in both sets because it is rare in Latin, but is in an extended version of the first distribution, and is worth 10 points there. K and Z are also absent in both sets because they are rare in Latin, while J is not considered separate from I. W is also absent in both sets because it did not exist in ancient times, and is used only in modern borrowed words.

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: E ×11, I ×11, A ×9, R ×9, S ×8, T ×7, U ×7, N ×6,
• 2 points: M ×5, O ×5, C ×4
• 3 points: D ×3
• 4 points: L ×2, P ×2
• 5 points: B ×2, V ×2
• 6 points: F ×1, G ×1, X ×1
• 10 points: H ×1, Q ×1

The third distribution is as follows:[11]

• 1 point: E ×12, I ×12, V ×10, A ×9, T ×8, O ×8, S ×7, N ×6, R ×6, M ×5, O ×5, L ×3
• 2 points: D ×3, P ×3
• 3 points: C ×4, B ×2

A Spanish Scrabble game completed.

Spanish-language sets sold outside North America use these 100 tiles:

Stress accents are disregarded. The letters K and W are absent since these two letters are rarely used in Spanish words. According to FISE (Federación Internacional de Scrabble en Español) rules, a blank cannot be used to represent K or W.

Using one C and one H tile in place of the CH tile, two L tiles for the LL tile, or two R tiles for the RR tile is also not allowed in Spanish Scrabble (see rules in Spanish provided by the FISE).

Spanish-language sets sold within North America (known as Scrabble – Edición en Español) use - including "K" and "W" but without "CH" - these 103 tiles:

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: A ×11, E ×11, O ×8, S ×7, I ×6, U ×6, N ×5, L ×4, R ×4, T ×4

## Swedish

Swedish-language Scrabble sets (for a long time sold in Sweden as Alfapet, but that is now a different game) use these 100 tiles:

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: A ×8, R ×8, S ×8, T ×8, E ×7, N ×6, D ×5, I ×5, L ×5

Also, the letters Q and W, rare in Swedish, are absent, but can be played with a blank. The letters Ü and Æ require a blank and (as of 2010) only occur in one and three playable words respectively, müsli and three forms of the word Laestadianism (in Swedish spelt læstadianism).

## Turkish

Turkish-language sets use these 100 tiles (including distinct dotted and dotless I tiles):

## Welsh

The box for Welsh-language Scrabble sets.

Welsh-language Scrabble sets use these 105 tiles:

• 2 blank tiles (scoring 0 points)
• 1 point: A ×10, E ×8, N ×8, I ×7, R ×7, Y ×7, D ×6, O ×6, W ×5, DD ×4
• 2 points: F ×3, G ×3, L ×3, U ×3
• 3 points: S ×3, B ×2, M ×2, T ×2
• 4 points: C ×2, FF ×2, H ×2, TH ×2
• 5 points: CH ×1, LL ×1, P ×1
• 8 points: J ×1
• 10 points: NG ×1, RH ×1

Since there are specific tiles for the digraphs that are considered to be separate letters in Welsh orthography (such as DD), it is not permissible to use the individual letters to spell these out. Diacritics on letters are ignored.

The digraph PH exists in Welsh, but is omitted because it is used almost exclusively in mutated words, which the rules disallow. K, Q, V, X and Z also do not exist in Welsh. Arguably J does not exist in Welsh either, but it is included as it is sometimes used for borrowed words.
