Not very happy with this item, after only 3 Months the letters started coming off the plastic tiles, and I had a lot of diffaculty getting help from Mattel until Amazon got involved then Mattel replaced the game with a new one which will probabley have the same problem in time as the letters are only printed on the tiles and not etched on as the old games used to be.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wood? Not on this planet.... 21 Oct 2010

So it looks good and plays better than a normal set, in particular the letters stay on the board if you knock it etc. But the description said words like 'wood' etc which is why I bought it... It isn't, it's plastic as is everything in the box - this was the really dissapointing part. So yes it's a nice scrabble board, but don't expect it to be anything that special.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised! 29 Nov 2009
"A most luxurious SCRABBLE set, an ideal gift for the SCRABBLE player. Contains a highly finished wooden framed board with a raised grid to keep the wooden tiles in place. All the contents are made to the highest quality."

You would think from the description that you're getting a durable product but the only tree-related material in this product is the box. The framed board was plastic as were the 'wooden' tiles. Returned it for a refund but lost the tracking and shipping costs. The product didn't come from Amazon as you are led to believe. Scrabble Deluxe

1.0 out of 5 stars Deluxe scrabble set 28 Dec 2010

The entire set is made out of plastic and looks incredibly cheap for the price. I would have expected the "deluxe" version to be made out of wood. Very disappointing

1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Deluxe about this 6 Feb 2012
Durability: 1.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The ordinary game of Scrabble we have comes with wooden tiles and stands. The "Deluxe" version comes with plastic tiles and stands - and not quality plastic. The board is supposed to be on wheels that allow it to turn around: very small wheels which do not lift the board high enough to be able to turn properly, the wheels squeak and block at every turn. There are little nobs to hold the tiles in place, but actually make them more difficult to use. The box is twice the size of the normal Scrabble, making it more difficult to store. Scrabble is a wonderful game on many points of view; the "deluxe" version is rubbish. I regret that Amazon does not allow me to place no stars.

Nothing like the original Scrabble de luxe. made by Spears. Cheap and nasty quality. Don't think it will last 24months let alone the 35years my original board and tiles have lasted. Disappointed with this item.

I bought the Scrabble Deluxe by Mattel, mistakenly thinking I was upgrading from our old Scrabble game. This item is plastic throughout. Glossy wood effect will not do. It still looks and feels cheap. Even my 30 year old Scrabble game feels better quality.

I bought this as a present for my wife. I previously had a deluxe version of Scrabble when I lived in Australia, and I specifically bought this (expensive) version as I was pleased with the previous one and I was hoping for something similar.

First thing I noticed with this version is that the swivel base is actually four little plastic wheels, one on each edge of the board. They are so small that they are very scratchy and don't really work properly straight out of the box, it's more like dragging it in a circular motion than turning it easily. This was on a wooden table, if you're playing on the carpet or particularly smooth surface, forget it. I can imagine any movement they currently have will stop as soon as they get any dust or dirt in them. This contrasts with the turntable type base I had on my previous board, which was much smoother and enjoyable to use.

Second thing is that the pieces are made of plastic and are hollowed out at the back. This contrasts with my previous board where they were little wooden blocks. The plastic design of these pieces just adds to the cheapness of this board and when you're picking them out of the bag it's just not as satisfying as the wooden ones.

The board has a grid of little plastic pegs which hold the pieces from moving, this works fine (which is probably just as well given how badly the swivel mechanism works), and while the pieces can be a little tricky to remove at the end of the game, it's easy enough to just tip the whole lot into the top of the box.

Overall, pretty dissatisfied with the quality of this board. They had an excellent deluxe version previously, which I think I actually paid less for. It feels like they're cutting corners on this one and I wouldn't recommend paying the extra for the "deluxe" features over that of the standard board.

The pieces stay where you put them as long as you don't turn the board upside down or something like that.

The previous deluxe version rotated on a part-spherical bit of plastic underneath: utterly simple, worked perfectly. This has wheels which DON'T work well. Read more
