LHC scrabble

World's most expensive board game.
  [vote for,

Teams from different countries, who chipped in towards the LHC, get to spell out words using fundamental particles on a scrabble board. Extra points for whoever can get their Higgs Boson onto a triple particle score square.

Polish place names not allowed,

       Wouldn't most of the words have to be in Greek?

       //be in Greek?   

       I think you're thinking about the iLiad?   

       How about the old parlour-room favourite, pin the Boson on the donkey, which does need excellent hand to eye co-ordination, and a very patient donkey.

       No - last time I looked, the majority of the fundamental particles had Greek letters.

       300, I win.

       Well, are you suggesting we name them after animals or something? "No, no, no, the LHC quite clearly shows badgers at 125 GEV, and your assertion that they are earwigs is entirely unfounded."

       //badgers and earwigs// Makes as much sense as charm, strange, top, and bottom.

       //Do I have to do the Capybaryon joke   

       Cap y baron? Something to do with a welsh baron's titfer?
