Scrabble is still one of the most popular and best loved games in the world despite the onset of computers, I-pads and whatever else. Scrabble is a classic word based board game for 2 to 4 people where each player has 7 letter tiles, with these they must place them on the board forming real words and then receive scores based on the commonness of the letters used, the use of special squares on the board which can double or treble the score or other denominators.Scrabble is a classic game, it has been played in this country for ages and I first learnt to play with my Grandad alongside chess and draughts. The box hasn't changed much in over 4 decades, the box I bought is very similar to the immaculate box my Grandad still owns, I guess this longevity shows that this game is a real bargain for the price, in terms of how long it can last if you take care of it.
Available for £12.99 on Amazon or from Toys R'us, this really is a great game for people who have a lot of time on their hands, we've taken it on family holidays packed in a bag with the board being folded and also use it with friends when they visit and the Xbox seems anti-social to use.
I love this game, it never tires of being fun and challenging and everyone seems to get into it, despite 20 years of playing it, I can still be hazy on the rules (When it suits me) and it is often more fun if your opponents are over competitive or slightly too confident.The game is perfect for playing with people of all ages, it is a great way for kids to learn new vocabulary and for elders to put their younger family members in their place, if they can, the game is fun, educational, challenging and no two games are ever the same.
This is a classic word game played around the world, its smart, it encourages development of your vocabulary and it is a great way to spend an evening with friends and family without being stuck in front of the television.
