a very ordinary scrabble set,

This review is from: Scrabble Board Game (Toy)To misquote a well known ad - it isn't what it says on the box.
It's called Scrabble Original - it claims to be an upgrade - there's a contradiction already - and it isn't an upgrade.
Some smart alec in the marketting department thinks that if they make the box bigger that will make people think that what is in it is better. Well - all the increased size of the box does is make it harder to store.
As for this being any better - the only real change is that there is no scorepad in this version - this really is a petty, penny pinching change.
The game of Scrabble itself is of course great, but Mattel have not done themselves proud here - this comes across as a rather grubby bit of marketting.
My three stars reflect the worth of this Edition - not Scrabble itself.
