These Scrabble ads by Ogilvy & Mather's office in Costa Rica show a whimsical use of the board game's letter tiles. The quotes are from NASA, Marilyn Monroe and the Beatles. These ads could make for a new twist on the game for Scrabble devotees: replace a word in a famous quote using the letters in your tile rack.

Scrabble was invented during the Great Depression. You can read about its history here.
