Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Scrabble Classic is the Rolls Royce of Scrabble games. It has polished wooden tiles, wooden tile racks and a classic game board. This is a return to real class--just like buying a vintage car.

Scrabble play consists of forming interlocking words from letter tiles, rather like a crossword. The object of the game is to score the highest number of points by making the longest words using the highest scoring tiles.

Each player has seven letter tiles that are replenished after each turn and forms a word on the board with two or more letters from his rack. Players can only add letters to those already played, either forming new words or modifying those already laid. Scores can be hugely boosted by forming words across the double and triple letter score spaces and double and triple word score spaces.

The game ends when all the tiles from the pool have been taken, and either one of the players has used all his tiles or no-one can form any more words. The player with the highest score wins.

Scrabble seems to have been around forever and been forever popular. This classic edition is one for those who like to play in real style. --Ben King

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 31 Dec 2003
By Liz S
Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Having read the previous reviews about this being the Rolls Royce of Scrabble and a great experience for the older generation, I purchased this as a gift for my in-laws. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!
On opening the box you will find wooden racks that are so roughly finished you could get splinters from them. In addition the tiles have not been printed uniformly, some letters are at the top of the tile, some in the middle and some at the bottom. Given that the board when opened out has a huge crease along it making it impossible to lay tiles sensibly, all in all this was a great disappointment to me and the recipients of the gift. My advice - pay the extra and get Scrabble Deluxe ( if you can get hold of it) and shop around - mine was £31.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor value for money 10 Jan 2005
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Poor value for money compared with later editions: no pencils, score-pads, bags for tiles. Dissatisfied. Exaggerated sales pitch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living in the Past 29 April 2010
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love Scrabble, though many I know view it venomously as the root of family arguments and the author of awkward tensions between competing comrades. I bought this just before they announced the rules shall be altered in June to be allow proper nouns. Nonsense I say! So I'm very happy to have this anachronism - it's lovely to feel the wooden tiles and racks, and see the old muted colours on the board. Certainly worth the extra few quid you pay to avoid the plastic set. And dare I say it's more environmentally friendly?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wooden Scrabble 11 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase

This is a very well made classic wooden Scrabble. All the pieces are smooth and well made and are very pleasant to touch. The letters are not just printed on the wooden pieces but are etched into them. I think it will last for many years. The only thing missing for me is that the Scrabble score pad isn't included in this version of the game.

I'm totally delighted with my Classic Scrabble set! I do appreciate that the pieces are not as smooth or as substantial as the Scrabble I grew up with, but what a joy it is to play with a Scrabble that is not made of plastic!

Just as you'd expect. Good quality wooden letters and letter holders. Better than the "original" one I had in the 1970s.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not in English! 5 May 2010
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I ordered the Classic Wooden Scrabble as we wanted a practical, durable game brought out to Tanzania where we live. When it arrived, the letters and amount of each letters were correct for English Scrabble, but the board is in Dutch! This isn't a huge deal for those of us who have played for years and know what each coloured block means in terms of points, but for new players, it's annoying! Why sell an English game in an English box, with English instructions, but a Dutch board? If I lived in the UK, I would return it for this reason.
