Client Brief

Iconic toy company Mattel owned Scrabble is one of the most widely played board games across the world. The game tests vocabulary and initiates wordplay, hence also used as an educational tool to hone language and cognitive skills.

Mattel India simply wanted to get kids to step away from their online and video gaming habits with the all-time favorite wordplay game, Scrabble. Objective was to engage with kids on a large-scale along with school teachers, making them aware of the game as a fun-cum-educational tool.

Idea

A YOY intense school contact program and Scrabble championship tapping into the joys and benefits of the board game
