This book seems to be exactly as described, and is perfect for UK Scrabble words. Bear in mind that this is not a comprehensive dictionary in so far as only words upto nine letters are included, and the descriptions are short. However it is great for Scrabble, and crucially includes all variations of a word such as plural, different tense etc. Fully worth the money!

This book is brilliant for all families that enjoy casual word games.

It is comprehensive and authoritative, so it contains all the words that should be allowed in a word game, but aren't in grandma's 1963 edition of the Concise Oxford dictionary that you keep next to Delia on the bookshelf.

Due to it's very brief format and small print, it's small and light. You can take it on holiday with you.

Because it's a dictionary with definitions rather than just a word-list, you can learn what the words mean, which is a great aid to learning.

It can be used for all word games such as Boggle, Upwords etc. not just Scrabble.

Highly recommended

Most things have been covered in other reviews here, but I ought to add that if like me, your Scrabble games are punctuated with 'debates' (ok - arguments) about the validity of words, this will change your Scrabble-playing life!

There are older editions available too, under the name OSW (Chambers Official Scrabble Words), which can sometimes be a cheaper option, but with this book selling at a reduced price like it is now, seize the moment and buy one - you won't regret it!

Best I've seen, 25 Feb 2009
By J Healing (uk)

I have looked at several different scrabble dictionaries. In their descriptions, Collins have made it extremely difficult for scrabble players to know which scrabble dictionary to buy.

I like to have a book with as many words as are allowed, and to have brief meanings of the words. This book does both.

Because of the muddle of scrabble dictionaries published, I would urge you to check the ISB number, because the covers and the descriptions alone might lead you to buy the wrong book.

# ISBN-13: 978-0-00-721359-7

So I would very much recommend this book, which I am very very happy with.

Purchased this book as a present. Fast efficient delivery, excellent value for money. Gives word names and also the meanings for the words. Comes with a hard cover case(useful). Ideal for the electronic scrabble games that throw up words that you have never heard of..Very Very pleased...

The Scrabble dictionary is a great tool, it solves all the arguments on what words are allowed and how to spell them with the added bonus that unlike some of the scrabble dictionary you also get the definition for the word. It is amazing the number of 2 letter words that are allowed and have you seen the number of words beginning in Q that don't need a U. Handy size and easy to read.

What a revelation! I had previously been using an ordinary dictionary, which was slow because of the long definitions of each word. Not only is the Collins Scrabble Dictionary much quicker to use but the number of admissable words has been astonishing. I get much higher scores now.
