Scrabble® GO's Battle of the Boards Celebrity Showdown!

Winner in Instagram Partnership

Finalist in Games

Objective

Scrabble® GO is "the greatest word game of all time, reimagined". Based on the beloved board game with a legacy spanning generations, languages, and cultures around the world, Scrabble® GO is a modern take on the classic experience for mobile.

Scrabble® GO, from mobile games company Scopely, maintains the iconic gameplay of Scrabble alongside all-new game modes, highly social features, and solo play options to keep fans' brains engaged between turns.

During the worldwide launch in March 2020, the team at Scopely identified three main objectives for Scrabble® GO and its "Battle of the Boards" celebrity showdown campaign: 

Strategy

What do actors, athletes, comedians, social influencers and scientists have in common? They’re all Scrabble enthusiasts!

To make a debut worthy of this iconic brand, Scopely's "Battle of the Boards" celebrity showdown campaign partnered with social influencers and celebrities including actors, athletes, and comedians who all share a genuine love of Scrabble to celebrate the worldwide launch and continue the momentum throughout the year.

We took inspiration from the competitive spirit Scrabble has long ignited at dinner tables and living rooms around the world to build a celebrity-driven campaign that would reach many different audiences of fans, from longtime Scrabble loyalists to those new to the game. 

Bragging rights, glory, and some charitable donations were at stake for our celebrity partners battling it out, which included Jonathan Van Ness and Antoni Porowski of "Queer Eye"; comedians Whitney Cummings, David Spade, Kevin Hart, Anthony Anderson, and Chelsea Handler; "The Office" stars Angela Kinsey and Rainn Wilson; elite athletes Shaquille O'Neal, Alex Morgan and Megan Rapinoe; "Blackish" fan favorites Yara Shahidi and Tracee Ellis Ross; actress and Hollywood royalty Drew Barrymore; and "Big Bang Theory" actresses Melissa Rauch and Mayim Bialik...just to name a few.

Our celeb "word nerds" shared the progress of their matches (and some friendly smack-talk) with their fans on Instagram and Twitter, posting videos and screenshots to make everyone feel like they were part of the game. Kevin Hart even made his way into Scrabble® GO's gameplay, appearing as an AI opponent that players could challenge any time.

A steady cadence of engaging, rich content shared via Instagram and Twitter kept Scrabble® GO top of mind among their followers at launch and beyond.

Results

Scrabble® GO debuted as the biggest mobile word game launch of all time -- smashing our objective of driving awareness and installs on a global scale. Since launch, Scrabble® GO has been downloaded over 31 million times, with over 1.6M daily active users.

Our "Battle of the Boards" campaign generated more than 90 pieces of unique content that drove more than 50 million views on Instagram and Twitter. As a result of this campaign, the Scrabble® GO online community grew to over 1 million fans across channels which have generated over 800,000 organic engagements and over 5 million in organic reach.

Today, Scrabble® GO is a genre-leading mobile word game. The average player spends 90 min. playing per day, with 60% playing every single day. Players have sent hundreds of millions of chat messages since launch, and Scrabble® GO has emerged as a new social platform for friends, family, and fans to connect over a shared love of language -- no matter where in the world they are.
