How fun! Outdoor scrabble "I like areas of double use," says Sacramento architect Kristy McAuliffe, and her 5-foot square Scrabble board rates at least a double-word score on the scale of inventive garden games. With the help of friend Keith Rogers, McAuliffe made a wood frame, then poured concrete and scored it into 3¾-inch squares separated by ¼-inch joints. After the concrete had cured for one month, she colored the squares using water-base concrete stains. McAuliffe then made 100 3¼-inch square letter tiles from baseboard trim. She found precut, adhesive-backed vinyl letters and numbers at a sign shop, stuck them on the tiles, and sealed each one with spray lacquer. The lightweight letters, which are stored in a canvas bag, fit on metal trays made by McAuliffe's friend, metal artist Crystal Weber. Games go late on summer evenings. "You get better words playing outside," McAuliffe says.Lara Gould
