4.0 out of 5 stars Good size for travelling 1 Nov 2013

Durability: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As a couple who travel alot, we wanted a small scrabble set to carry with us on holiday we have found that the "Travel Scrabble" sets are a bit bulky and not that well designed. So I bought this with trepidation.

However, so far I am pleased. The case is very compact (no larger than a paperback book) and comes with a small green felt bag, a set of magnetic tiles and the four tile holders which slot under the board when not in use. It is a plastic 'clamshell' design which helps save on space and means you can close it mid-game and continue later if you wish. Gone are the silly tile holders in the Travel sets which are a pain to put the tiles in and instead you get a small plastic stand with a magnetic strip to hold the letters to which is a big improvement. Given the size of the board, the letters are really tiny (about 7mm x 7mm) but they stick to the board strong enough that you can't shake them loose easily. We haven't travelled with the set mid-game but I have no reason to think they won't stay in place if you do.

A few minor cons though. Firstly the set doesn't come with any spare tiles in case you lose one (easily done when they are so small). There are actually five extra blank ones but three of them have been printed on with scissor symbols and part numbers which makes them useless leaving only the two blank wild card tiles. Secondly, and this is inevitable really given they are magnetic, the tiles have a habit of sticking together in the bag making mixing them tricky. And finally, I have some doubts about the durability of the set - the hinges are fairly cheap plastic so time will tell how well they stay intact and the tile holders seem to fit very snuggly into the slots and take some force to get them out. I haven't snapped one yet but it seems likely to happen.

Overall though if you are looking for a small scrabble set to take with you on your travels I think this is the best option available and it is pretty good value.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pocket Scrabble 30 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
I bought this as a gift for a friend and regular Scrabble opponent, because I've had one myself for years and find it most useful. It is truly portable - you could use it on trains and planes, while away on holiday - anywhere in fact. You don't have to have a table to play on. As the "tiles" stick to the board magnetically, you can make your move and pass the board to the next player. You don't need pencil and paper to tot up the scores, as each side of the board has a slider to mark off digits, tens and hundreds. (You just have to remember to add the score to your own side, and not bump up your opponent's score inadvertently!)

A couple of downside items about this new version. (1) The enclosed leaflet doesn't tell you how many of each letter there should be in the pack, so you can't do an occasional audit to see if you've lost any. (2) If you do lose any (which is easy to do as the tiles are small and a bit fiddly), there are only 2 spares to make replacements with.

5.0 out of 5 stars travel scrabble. 2 Nov 2013
I use while on holiday, and traveling. It helps to relieve the boredom. Being magnetic is such a bonus, great product...
