Espárrago - asparagus

I think there might be quite a few fruit and veg/ drinks that will need to begin with a vowel.

So.. all of these words that end in vowels.. its kinda stunts the game a little..

Is "Scrabble" played in Spain.. if so, how does the Letter count differ?

Yes, it is called INTELECT. The rules a a bit different, because you can put the words in reverse, like in spanish crosswords, for example:

Zanjar. (to settle, to resolve a problem) You can also use rajnaz.
