Consnone really

Every one every where must have heard about, played, or, like me, owned a certain word game called Scrabble, considering that the game of scrabble has been around since the early 1930’s, although way back then it wasn’t played on a board. Firstly, a bit of history about the game, which I found...

ConsNone for me I love it!

When mom and dad were alive we often used to play Scrabble. I had Junior Scrabble as a child and then adult Scrabble and Travel Scrabble when I was older. The version that I am talking about today is Scrabble Original which is the standard adult version. The price I have just taken a look on the...

ProGood game to keep your brain working

Consnone

I may not technically be reviewing the original Scrabble as that was one made in 1948. However I am reviewing the scrabble that I own it is called Scrabble original, I have owned my game since the 1980’s. In 1931 a man called Alfred Butts developed a game called Lexico this he developed over the...

ProA good classic

ConsCan get dull

“Classic game”

published 06/12/2011

ProFun, gets you thinking, a classic

Consannoying if tiles end up moving!

I am a huge fan of Scrabble and enjoy playing it with my friends. It is a classic game which has been in our family for many years. There are a few variations on this game that you can get such as a junior version which is a great idea to get children interested in words. This game is played on a...

“Scrabble”

published 31/05/2012

ProFun and uses brainpower

ConsNot much good for children

My parents were having a clear out at home a few months back and found their game of scrabble. I’d loved this game for years and since they don’t really get time to play it, I took it off their hands. I have played this a few times since acquiring it recently and I still love the game as much now...

“Scrabble - Highs and Lows”

published 03/12/2012

ProGreat,addictive, educational and durable game.

ConsAddictive!

Scrabble - a good old-fashioned word game that still appeals across the generations. In our family we like to make some of our own rules up. We don't like the Official Scrabble Word Dictionary. How is 'Ba', for example, acceptable and what does it mean? We have a copy but it hardly ever sees the...

ProGets your brain working

ConsNone

As a youngster one game that we played a lot, especially when away on a holiday and it was raining, was the Mattel game, Scrabble. There have been many versions of this game over the years, but the original is still the best. I purchased this game from amazon for £18.99. Scrabble is a game of...

ConsNot suitable for very small children due to small ...

Scrabble is a paradoxically simple yet hugely sophisticated word-based board-game that was originally conceived back in the late 1940s. Each player takes 7 individual letter-pieces from a shared pool of unknown pieces and must use those letters to create words on a large board divided up into...
