4.0 out of 5 stars comments on scrabble 26 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase
on the whole it is presented well but i would like to have had the little dictionary/rules book with it. i have had scrabble before and the booklet was included. also the tiles are much smaller and don't fit the squares on the board properly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 17 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase
This was a really disappointing set. The tiles are cheap plastic and not embossed with the letters like boards of old. I also find it quite annoying that the letters are all offset to the top to make space for the points. The board has been lightly modernised in design, but this has taken away from the retro nature of the game and just looks cheap and tacky. The tile holders aren't long enough to move your tiles around while you're thinking of good words. The set doesn't contain a note pad or pencil. The box is full of cardboard spacing. Just don't bother, go find a proper old-school version.

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic game for the family 10 Dec 2013

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Scrabble is a traditional game and one played a lot by my family over the years. I bought this set to replace our old set that had become tattered and torn. No complaints; it's shiny new and well constructed. The rules are on a sheet rather than in a booklet and you will need to be armed with your own dictionary. It is a great game, demanding thought, some knowledge and a bit of a tactical mind: what's not to like? A classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why such a big box? 26 Jan 2014
By R H
A little disappointed with the excessive size of the box. At least a third of the volume of the box is taken up with card spacers. Why not make the box the size required to house the game? Whilst this doesn't detract from the game whilst being played, it does mean it takes up a large amount of unnecessary space on the shelf!

Also, no score card, pencil or pen included and the rule sheet is rather flimsy. I doubt this will last as long as the version I played with as a child. They certainly don't make them like them used to.

Other than that a reasonable game for family fun.

Exactly what I expected, but it's a shame the tiles were not big enough for the squares and it did not have the scoring pad or pencil

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better 29 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Received product today after much anticipation, since scrabble is a firm favourite in our family. Board was to replace an older set, but to my disappointment, the board itself is flimsy, and the squares are just stickers- not with ridges to keep the tiles in, so the tiles slide all over the place. Also, as other customers commented, there is no book with rules/words, and no score card! Not worth the money in my opinion, would much prefer to give a few extra pounds and get a set that will be enjoyable to play with. Feel like Mattel are ripping me off.

Scrabble really hasn't changed in the last 50 years, has it? Although then the letter racks then were wooden rather than plastic.
