I have a friend who is running ubuntu. He has a scrabble computer game that he wants to install. He got it out of a cereal box, but he likes it and wants to play it anyways.

Where could he look for the game?

Since the game will be only for Windows (probably) , you will need to install it through wine.

But there is also a scrabble game natively for Ubuntu, called PyScrabble. You can install it via executing sudo apt-get install pyscrabble in the terminal or search for "PyScrabble" in the Software Center and install it.

I couldn't find a Scrabble game for Ubuntu that I liked but "Networdz" for Windows works fine under Wine and I have been playing that flawlessly on various Ubuntu versions for years.
