Product Description

Product Description

Did you know scrabble was invented in 1931 by an unemployed architect named Alfred Butts? It was quietly played by just the inventor and his friends until 1948 when it began to be manufactured and sold. Scrabble is the world's best-selling word game and once people start playing this famous word game they are usually captivated for life. Each player must make the best use of 7 letter tiles drawn at random, taking turns to form words crossword-style across the playing board. Scores are given for letter values and are boosted by premium squares on the grid. The highest score at the end wins. This is a great opportunity to update and treat yourself to a brand-new Scrabble.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not 'Original Scrabble' 27 Sep 2012
By MikeD
Verified Purchase
Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
My wife and I love Scrabble - and have played it since the 1960's. Our second set (1980 vintage) was showing signs of wear, (gave them to a family member) and so three years ago bought this 'original Scrabble' set.

After 3 years the tiles are totally unreadable - the printing on the tiles having worn off. (Our earlier sets had the letters painted/printed into recesses in the tile surface.) Frankly, I wonder if it is fit for purpose!

Have looked around for something like our 'original Scrabble' but even the deluxe version only seems to have a fancy board, not better tiles. Mattel & co should be ashamed of themselves.

2.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and green 6 Sep 2011
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
We played scrabble on holiday and much enjoyed it. Ordered this set, and was very disappointed by the cheap tile racks, and small board. The predominance of green makes it hard to view the scoring squares and I'm amazed they let the board look like this. I am going to order the wooden version as I can't stand this board.

3.0 out of 5 stars a very ordinary scrabble set 25 Sep 2007
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
To misquote a well known ad - it isn't what it says on the box.

It's called Scrabble Original - it claims to be an upgrade - there's a contradiction already - and it isn't an upgrade.

Some smart alec in the marketting department thinks that if they make the box bigger that will make people think that what is in it is better. Well - all the increased size of the box does is make it harder to store.

As for this being any better - the only real change is that there is no scorepad in this version - this really is a petty, penny pinching change.

The game of Scrabble itself is of course great, but Mattel have not done themselves proud here - this comes across as a rather grubby bit of marketting.

My three stars reflect the worth of this Edition - not Scrabble itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars game good-quality ok but jinxed 26 April 2011

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This edition of the game has the board, plastic letters, material bag, plastic letter holders and a sheet with the rules.
The box is reasonably sturdy and the game is the same old fun that everyone will remember.
There is a lot of packaging and filler in the box which is not the most environmental form of presentation.
That said, it does appear to have a jinx on this version as my wife has won 7 out of 8 games.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Original Scrabble 14 Jan 2008
Durability: 2.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This might call itself Scrabble Original, but it isn't. The Scrabble sets I played on as a lad all had wee holes in the board and pegs on the tiles so that the game wouldn't be ruined by the slightest knock. Sadly no more. It also comes in a stupidly huge box to make storage unnecessarily awkward. Disappointing.

The box isn't too big, the letter pieces are perfectly good quality and all together this package represents excellent value for money. Don't heed the grumblers!

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Classic 24 July 2010
By Happy
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great wee set of Scrabble one which I cannot find any negative points to write about.
It seems perfectly robust with easy to read letters on the tiles and easy to read words on the board.

Just the ticket !
