I think that ain't real, Ed. See here.

If it were, it would be Mattel's New Coke. It would never work.

T.B.

Luckily, Slate has our backs, and confirms that proper nouns will NOT be making their Scrabble debut:

Here's what's actually happening. Mattel, which owns the rights to Scrabble outside of North America, is introducing a game this summer called Scrabble Trickster. The game will include cards that allow players to spell words backward, use proper nouns, and steal letters from opponents, among other nontraditional moves. The game will not be available in North America, where rival toy company Hasbro owns Scrabble. Hasbro, I'm told, has no plans for a similar variation.
