Product Description

Product Description

Whether you're a scrabble newcomer or an expert, use trick cards to level the playing field by breaking the rules of Scrabble. Steal your opponent’s high score, make them lose their turn, even take advantage of a triple word score by playing a word anywhere on the board.

In this twist on the classic word game, Scrabble, players use their seven drawn letter-tiles to form words on the gameboard. The twist is that now, proper names such as cities or celebrity names will now be allowed. Other twists include playing words backwards or playing words unconnected to others on the board. So go ahead and break the rules. You know you want to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great twist on a classic. 14 Dec 2010
By JABBER
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a scrabble fanatic I thought this would be an insult to the game, but having played it this weekend I have to say it was brilliant. The trickster element certainly adds not detracts from what is one of "the" classic board games. You play it as you would regular scrabble with the familiar board layout and rules, but some of the blank squares are marked "trickster" On covering these squares you then pick up a trickster card. These cards which give an instruction can then be played or held till best used to your advantage. My only gripe is the boards colours are a little gaudy and certainly hard on the eyes after a while, but that could just be my eye sight :)

My husband and I enjoy a game of Scrabble, and when I saw this product I thought it would make a nice change from the original game. I was right! This is very enjoyable, and the little trick cards give the game a great twist. Good for all ages; so pleased I purchased it!

Mattel Scrabble Trickster The first time we played this, it ended up like an ordinary game of Scrabble as everyone was too polite to play the tricks suggested on the cards - like stealing someone's high score for a word as soon as it is played. However, if everyone agrees not to take it too seriously it can be great fun - forget trying to place your words on double and triple word scores and instead make sure you get to pick up a Trickster card every time and be brave enough (and ruthless enough!) to use them to your advantage. (There are squares allowing you to pick up a card, in addition to all the usual-coloured squares on the board.) Anyone can win this game - not just the most erudite player every time!

For all those hardened Scrabble fans, this is a bit of a twist and means more fun can be had. Steal your opponents score or completely cancel what they have just created. My boyfriend still hasn't forgiven for deleting his score of 99!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars a new twist 30 Dec 2010
By p_moore
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
In no way a replacement for the original, but a good twist on it. Scrabble games in our house were a little one sided and this new version makes things a little more even, encorouging more people to be involved in the game. With cards that allow an opponents last score to be stolen, words spelt backwards or any where on the board really keep you on our toes! A refreshing change from the orignal, which is fun for the whole family.
I would say the only downside is that the trickster squares make the board appear a little crowded if you are used to paying the original game, a very minor point.

The game is in essence the same as normal scrabble but with extra squares that reward you with tricks, this makes it more than possible for adults to play with children and still have a close game.

I wanted this for my Dad for Christmas as he loves scrabble and I thought it would be a good variation. We enjoyed it and found it put a good spin on the original and also gives those who aren't so good at scrabble a chance to win through the trick cards!
