"Scrabble" is one of the best-selling board games of all time, with between one and two million units sold each year in the United States alone. "Scrabulous" for Facebook, the insanely popular game developed by the Agarwalla brothers, was disabled in 2008. However, even if you don't have an official "Scrabble" board and a friend, you can still play Scrabble crossword games for free online on numerous sites.
