    TuxMathScrabble is a math version of the classic word game Scrabble (Trademark of Hasbro) which challenges kids to construct compound equations and to consider multiple abstract possibilities.[1] TuxMathScrabble was originally developed for Linux, but much effort was subsequently put into making the game platform-independent (Linux, Mac, Windows). The game can be played by 0, 1 or 2 players, where zero corresponds to "demo" mode. The game was built with opensource software and is released under the Gnu Public License (GPL). The first version of TuxMathScrabble was released in 2001[citation needed] and periodic maintenance releases are ongoing.[2] TuxMathScrabble has a "sister" application known as TuxWordSmith which is similar to Scrabble and supports over 80 languages including Greek and Russian.
