- Scrabble letter distributions
Many editions of the word

board game vary in theScrabble **letter distribution**of the tiles, because the frequency of each letter of the alphabet is different for every language. As a general rule, the rarer the letter the more points it is worth.Many languages use sets of 102 tiles, since the original distribution of one hundred tiles was later augmented with two blank tiles.__NOTOC__

*"10 points":**NG**×1,**RH**×1Since there are specific tiles for several of the common digraphs (such as "DD"), it is not permissible to use the individual letters to spell these out.

Omissions: the digraph "PH" exists in Welsh, but is used almost exclusively in mutated words, which the rules disallow; "K", "Q", "V", "X" and "Z" do not exist in Welsh. Arguably "J" does not exist in Welsh either, but it is included as it is sometimes used for borrowed words.
