There’s one simple reason that Scrabble translates poorly into German: Long words. Actually their words are just fine. The board is the problem. It’s too small for the likes of these words seen around Berlin…
Of course, this isn’t true at all. German Scrabble is definitely a thing.
All they need is an adapted board.
That should fit Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz…which is, indeed, a real word.
