    November 2008 marks the release of the 50th and last state quarter of the 50 State Quarters Program: Hawaii. This month and year also marks the election of the first African-American U.S. President Barack Obama, who was born in Hawaii. I recently saw the movie Forgetting Sarah Marshall, which mainly took place in Hawaii.

    This made me think Hawaiian. So why not create a Letterbug design based on it? :D

    The board is based off the Hawaii flag design and colors.
    + Start on the dark red square.
    + Red/pink squares denote double letter/word scores.
    + Navy/blue squares denote triple letter/word scores.

    Here is the challenge: the Hawaiian alphabet consists of only 12 letters, and they are the only letters used on this board! Letters are A, E, I, O, U, H, K, L, M, N, P, and W.

    Aloha and enjoy! :)
