One of those old time favorites. The success of Scrabble has inspired less inspirational game-makers to make something the same but different enough to avoid complaints of Mr.Scrabble himself.

Very similar, and a lot of complaints from Mr. Scrabble himself. Actually, when Aldo Pasetti self-produced the game was even sued by the publisher of Scrabble, that has very, very similar board, tiles and rules. The trial took place in the late '50s in Milan, Italy, and ended with a verdict of acquittal on the basis that game mechanics are not relevant and no confusion can be made between a long name as "Scarabeo" and a short one as "Scrabble", so it is not even unfair competition. Editrice Giochi had waited for the definitive acquittal: after that, it published the game.

Thanks for the tip, Roger Martin.
Again, some sort of scrabble with numbers. You may place three stones in a row with 15 points.

This one has you building equations with tiles that are numbers, operands, and parentheses. I actually got this game from my dad when I was a kid (though my edition is all blue and looks considerably less lame). Never played it (c'mon, what were the odds that your friends would EVER prefer playing 'Smath to NES?).

Ginasta is a Scrabble-like game with the values and suits of playing cards on the 106 square wooden tiles. As in Scrabble, various squares on the board indicate an increase in score for placed tiles. The object of the game is to make the highest score by making melds on the board.

I've looked at this one in one of my FLGSes on a number of occasions. It looks like another numeric Scrabble. I'll probably get it at some point and actually know what I'm talking about.
