Scrabble has been around for as long as I can remember and I played it as a child at christmas and with friends and family, now I have a scrabble board in the cupboard to play with when ever we have a family get together or friends come round to stay as it's a great game that can get very competative.

You can buy a scrabble game from Argo's or toy shops for around £25 upwards depending on where you buy it from. You get a box with the board and tiles with letters on and an instruction rule booklet.

The board opens up and there is a star in the middle where the first player puts their first word, then you take it in turns to add to the board to try and make other words with your lettered tiles.

Each letter is worth points which are shown on the lettered ties, the person with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Some places on the board are worth triple and double points and you soon get the hang of trying to get your words on these places to ge the best score, it can get very competative if playing scrabble with a few people especially if your having a drink too.

You also get a tile holder and others can't see your letters, to begin with you get seven letters to try and make word with, if you can't take a turn at making a word then you have to pick up an extra letters from the pile to make up your tiles to seven on your holder again.

Scabble is quite fun and it's surprising how many words you come up with when you need to, as well as the fun you have when someone is trying to convince you that their word is genuine and not made up.

It is for ages from 12 years upwards but you can buy the junior version for younger players.

All in all its a timeless game that will always be around, good value for money and fun to play.
