5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable guide to Scrabble, 10 Feb. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Collins Scrabble: Play to win! (Paperback)
I picked this gem up [] and it is worth every penny. As a longtime, casual Scrabble player, I was keen to improve my game and this book was a huge help. It contains some great advice on strategy and also has some word lists, including all 124 two-letter words. The book is written in a clear, conversational style and is very easy to read; it contains numerous diagrams and many Scrabble facts and tips are scattered throughout. If you're interested in improving your Scrabble game, then this book is a must-have. The only downside is the binding quality, which is not very good; I hope the pages don't start falling out!
