In Sweden was the American game Scrabble translated during the 50's, but got the name Alfapet instead. It was sold with this name until the beginning of the 90's, when the license was withdrawn. Scrabble was then sold by Mattel in Sweden with the original name Scrabble, but Alga made a similar crossword game, which was sold as Alfapet, as they still owned this name. One of the main changes is that the Swedish version contains squares that gives negative scoring.
