Good game for kids to play with others or by themselves. Fairly easy as only 5 letters.

Excellent game; great for kids that can spell, and those who can just shuffle the tiles.
Three games with two variations; solo find all the words from one set of letters, solo find a word that uses all letters, and competitive find a word with all the letters. This can be played with four or five letters.

So the first fun is finding the words, and is increasing in frantic pace as the ability to recognise the words gets better.

And there's a hard plastic box to hold the cubes in; neat and robust.

I bought this in USA (in spite of the possible American/English issues) but was unhappy to find that the US version had Spanish words in it too. Entirely my fault, but when I buy the second set here, hope to confirm that this issue does not repeat.
Hence the challenge to find all the words from 4 or 5 letters in 90 seconds is more challenging.

Bought the Boggle Flash, and it has the same issues with Spanish and American words.
Still lots of fun; revised review below.
And I still recommend it as a load of fun!

Revised review
Great fun, and nicely educational, but beware the Spanish and American influences.
This is the same game as Flash Scrabble (Boggle Flash Game)

The different letter tiles communicate by LEDs in teh sides, so when you place them in a line, tehy know the order, and so can recognise the words made. And at the end, it uses the order to tell you the best word, or the score you've achieved.

Great fun, and nicely educational, but beware the Spanish and American influences.

Three games: each can be played with four or five letters.
First game provides a set of letters that have to be combined into the maximum number of words. After a time interval (depends on the number of letters) the round ends, and when you line up the tiles, it tells you the score you achieved, and the maximum you could have achieved. It is this game that shows the foreign influences, with LAS, RAS, NOS etc beiong accepted words.
Second game provides one player with a set of letters to combine into a word; once found, the letters change, and a new word needs to be found. After a time interval, the count of words found is displayed.
Third game is similar to the second game, but after the word is found, it pauses with "NEXT" (to allow the tiles to be passed on) and once the button shows the next letters, the timer is restarted. This game is apparently recommended for two players, but can probably be used for many more; you just have to restart the game 3 and carry on if it stops after one or two drop-outs.

So, yes, great; I love it, my grandson loves it, and the entertainment just keeps on coming.

Fun and Addictive! 8 Sep 2010
By April Blake - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Scrabble Flash is a great way to get your Scrabble fix if you're short on time, have nobody to play Scrabble with, or if you're just looking for a different twist on the game. There are three different versions of Scrabble Flash that you can choose from. Game 1 is for playing solo, Game 2 is for playing with friends, and Game 3 is also for playing with friends, but adds elimination to the mix.

Scrabble Flash gets big points from me for using 2032 button batteries- these are readily available and don't require a trip to the obscure battery store. The game gets even bigger points from me for including the first set of batteries with the game. There's hardly any set-up. Just peel the films off the faces of the five game-pieces, push the power button on each piece, and go to it! The instructions and rules are super-straightforward- if you're playing by yourself, it's not even that necessary to read the instructions. Also included is a little slip of paper telling you what to do if your gamepieces experience technical difficulties- there's a reset button on the back of each.

I love that there's no time at all to belabor gameplay with strategy. You build 3-5-letter words as quickly as you can before your time runs out. I also love that once you get the game out of its package, it stores in a cute little portable box, and the instructions fit right inside.

The only thing that gives me pause with Scrabble Flash is that it counts words that I don't even know are words, and you move too fast to double-check. This isn't a huge deal, especially if you're playing this game with others, but when it really grinds my gears is when I'm playing by myself, and I get to the end of my round, and I find out that although I created 10 words, for instance, the game says there were 23 words maximum to be created with the letter combination I was given for that round. Not a big deal, but if you're a little obsessive-compulsive and also have a big vocabulary, this might get on your nerves, too. Just be warned.

Over all, though, Scrabble Flash is great!

Educational fun for the whole family 24 Sep 2010
By Melissa Niksic - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
Once I managed to get all five electronic Scrabble tiles out of the box (which, believe me, was a massive battle), I really enjoyed this game. The technology is innovative and quite impressive. The game is easy to figure out and fun to play. It's a game that I think will be especially good for families to play with younger children who are trying to improve their reading and writing skills. The only complaint I have regarding game play is that the tiles are kind of small, and the only person who has a good view of them is the person whose turn it is. So, if it's not your turn, it's kind of boring to just sit there because there's nothing much for you to watch. Similarly, a parent trying to assist a child with spelling would have to lean close over the kid's shoulder in order to help. Overall, though, this is a fun new approach to the classic game of Scrabble.

Lots of fun; especially in one player mode 5 Oct 2010
By K. Eckert - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? ) Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
This scrabble game consists of a sleek little black box that you can slide the 5 scrabble "tiles" into for storage. The tiles are about an inch and a half square and maybe half an inch thick.

There are three different games you can play. The first is to see how many words you can make by lining up the letters that appear on the tiles in a set amount of time. I thought this game was the most fun. At the end it will give you your score and how many words could have been made.

The second game you play is one where you are given a set amount of time to form five letter words from the letters that appear, you see how many 5 letter words you can make before time runs out. Again a it gives you your score at the end.

The third game can be played with multiple people. Each person gets a finite amount of time to make a five letter word in the time given then the tiles are passes onto the next player and they are given five new letters. If you can't make a five letter word before time runs out then you are OUT. This was the least fun; although I only played with two people and it may have been more fun with more. We were having trouble making five letter words in the short amount of time given, so we were both out almost always on the first or second turn. Maybe we just have poor letter scrambling skills; but I thought the time given should have been a bit longer.

I never had any trouble with the tiles "talking" to each other. This could get a bit pricey when you have to replace all of the watch batteries that these things use. The little black box these tiles comes in is super nice and really makes the game a nice one to travel with.

Overall excellent and addictive one player games. We didn't like the multi-person game as much but it may have been fun with more than two people; we thought the time given for each person for the multi player game was too short. Great game for travel, very compact.

Major Disappointment 3 Dec 2010
By jennifer settle - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
I am amazed that Scrabble Flash gets such positive reviews. I think the concept and design is fantastic, but the its main purpose falls completely flat. The game simply uses too may fictitious words that don't even exist in Middle Earth. I have been a conventional Scrabble lover since I was a kid, but this just doesn't cut it. I played 10 solo games and wrote down all the questionable words that the game recognized as legit. I used an official Scrabble dictionary, regular dictionary and the internet. In 10 games, I came across 44 words that flat out don't exist. How can the game be anything but a complete flop with these kind of major flaws.

Needs a bit more feedback after each game 16 Dec 2010
By Just Trying to Help - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:    Educational:    Fun:   
My 8 yr old daughter received this Scrabble Flash Cubes for a birthday gift. If you enjoy word games such as Boggle or Upwords, Scrabble Flash Cubes will be a lot of fun for you. Yes, it is fast paced and addictive.

Would have been a great educational tool except there is no way to list the words a player found after a round, or the actual words possible in the MAX total. The game has no way for 2 or more players to play using the exact same letter cubes. Letters change at random each time so players can't compete finding possible words from the same letter cubes.

Consider this as a fun gift for older children and adults and everyone will have a great time.

WAYS IT COULD BE BETTER:
1) If it could display the words that you found after a round.
2) If you could display the missing words that you did not find after a round.
3) If the tile combinations were numbered so you could choose tile combinations that were "stumping" you again and again.

I understand that this would probably make it cost more. But I would like to see those improvements in a deluxe version.
