Product Description

Product Description

This is another edition of the world-famous popular word game for two to four players. The object of the game is to compete for the highest score by forming interlocking words in cross-word fashion on the Scrabble board using tiles displaying letters with various score values. Higher scores can be obtained by using the tiles in locations and combinations that make most use of the letter values and premium squares (eg: triple letter score, double word score, etc.) on the board. The manufacturers recommend that the game is suitable for people age 10 years upwards, which is more or less accurate though slightly younger children could play, especially if there is some measure of supervision. Contents: there is a moulded plastic travel case, 23x12x5 cm, which features a built-in playing board with a non-slip surface uniquely designed to hold the special tiles which fit securely on the board. There is no need for paper and pencil to score as there is an integral scoring device on the edge of the board for each player. All the contents can be safely and tidily stored away inside the moulded case. There are four storage racks which are specially designed to hold tiles in place during the playing of the game and which keep them hidden when they are packed away if play has to be interrupted. There are 100 tiles of various values, a cloth bag to hold the tiles and a rules leaflet which is explicit and easy to follow.

This edition of scrabble if you want a travel version but are not too worried about space (it is bulkier than the magnetic travel edition, but is much more durable).

The tile holders slot into place under one side of the game board (which lifts up on both sides) and the tiles and bag are stored under the other side keeping everything together in one handy unit. The tiles slide into the holders and click nicely into place on the board.

There is no need for pen and paper as the unit has a handy scoring system with sliders on each side of the board. The sides are numbered 1-4 as are the tile holders so if you need to postopone game play you know which is score and which tiles are yours. If you do have to stop play mid-game, there is no need to worry as the tile holders fold over holding your tiles in place and store neatly away under the board and because the tiles click into place on the board, this can be folded up without the tiles falling out.

The only down-side is that the tiles can sometimes be a bit tricky to lift out of the holders and when you go to remove the tiles from the board at the end of the game, they have a habit of flicking across the room (so keep an eye on them!).

On the whole, this is a great edition - one of the best travel games I have purchased!

I'll assume that you all know how to play Scrabble. Well, this travel set is AWESOME! The letter holders fit neatly under the playing surface when not in use (I notice a previous reviewer said they needed to be stored elsewhere when not in use? Not sure what they are on about there, just leave them under the board!) and because the letters are magnetic, you can just pop it all away mid-game and then come back to it!
To the reviewer who said that there is no scoring system, I draw their attention to the markers on the sides of the board (visible in the photo above) - you simply slide the counter to indicate the number of points you have - i.e. 'x' no. of 1's, 10's, 100's.
When not in use, the letters fit in a tray which slots neatly inside the board, and the handy storage bag doubles as the letters bag when play is in progress. The attention to detail on this product as A1.
We travelled the world for two years and this game was invaluable for whiling away long flights or just relaxing in the evenings...word of advice though - buy the official Scrabble words book, or fast-track yourself into a divorce situation!!!

For anyone who enjoys playing Scrabble, and like us, only gets the chance when on holiday then the travel edition is perfect for you. However, I agree with an earlier reviewer regarding the quality of the actual board itself. It is not as good as the original which had the holes for putting the letters in. This version is quite bulky, the hinges break easily and we have found we've had to buy a new one every couple of years.... maybe it's a good marketing ploy!

Also on the last one we bought the ink ran on the tiles, not only did it rub off when you handled them, but when the board is closed and they touch the tiles on the opposite side they can transfer the ink on each other.... hence we played one game wondering who had the blank only to find it had been played as a 'U'!!

I do think Mattel need to improve the travel version, but for now as we are addicted to the game itself we will have to keep hoping.

You can play up to 3 other people on the official Scrabble board, with all the tiles, word score boxes and more, but this is ideal for use in a car (maybe not while you're driving!), bus, train, plane, etc.

The letter tiles clip securely onto the board, scores are kept on the side using smart number sliders, and even the player's tile racks fold over to hold each person's tiles in place between turns. If the game has to be interrupted, the racks fit under the board and the board folds over on itself to store the game in progress until everyone is ready to go again. I say 'nearly' in the title only because there doesn't seem to be enough room to store all the tiles, bag and rules in the folding box that makes up the board. Other than that, this is a great way to get your Scrabble fix, and for the price it can't be beat. Get this for travel and the deluxe wooden set for home play.

I was really disappointed with the quality of this product. This game was of a very poor standard!! The letters were printed badly some only just being on the tile and some had the value for each letter missing!! Also after playing 3 games the numbers representing the score scale on the edge of the board had rubbed off and were useless!! I have owned travel scrabble previously and the product was of a much better quality than this!! Only missing letters forced a new purchase!! Game has been trashed!!

Verified Purchase
I've had two examples of the board supplied by Amazon - both suffered from the same problem: the catch which holds the board shut in transit does not function effectively. In the first example it was Okish if the board had no tiles on it, the second was worse, the catch did not hold the board shut at all - even with no tiles on the board.

Amazon performed very well - the replacement for the first board arrived the day after raising the return request - excellent.

I've now requested a refund because of the awful design &/ or execution by Mattel means that there is no point in requesting a further example.
