Games People Played - Scrabble Bulletin Board
As part of my Games People Played series I've created Scrabble Tile Push Pins and Gameboard Bulletin Boards from discarded games. Most gameboards are made of a pressed cardboard and are ideal to use as a bulletin board - so get out there and experiment!

Would this work if I simply superglued the tacks to the tiles? The Scrabble game I have has plastic tiles, but I really, really want to do this. It looks absolutely fantastic!
