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 Â£31.
