Beat THIS for a high word score as skydivers are pictured playing Scrabble at 13,000ft

Daredevil, extreme and bonkers are three words that come to mind.

But it's doubtful whether the duo playing Scrabble at 13,000ft will have time to try them out.

The skydivers, Nicole Angelides and Ramsey Kent, are helping to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the game using a reinforced wooden board and adhesive pieces.




Miss Angelides, 41, a fan of both Scrabble and skydiving, said: 'It was a short game but a lot of fun.'

As well as the lofty game in Florida, there were celebratory Scrabble matches in a lion cage in Africa, an alligator park also in Florida and up on a chilly cliff overlooking the sea in North Wales.

More than 150million Scrabble sets have been produced since American architect Alfred Mosher Butts came up with the concept in 1938.

These days, at least 30,000 games of Scrabble are started every hour.
