Ludus Scrabularum...Palaeographicalis!

I have added special palaeographic characters to the standard distribution to create a special Scrabble set. Just print this sheet and experiment. If you have any comments, I would love to hear them, as this is very much a work in progress.

For those who are not confident in their mastery of Latin Palaeography, I have included a few basic aids: in the bottom left corner is an equivalence for the character, while a 'T' in the top right corner means it must be terminal and an 'I' means it must be initial. Minims may be used to form a variety of characters, thus, two minims (ii) may represent 'ii' 'u' or 'n', while three (iii) may represent 'iii' 'iu' 'in' 'ui' 'ni' or 'm'. As per the rules for u/v and i/j, the use of the tile may vary for different players.
