Bought this as our previous dictionaries were somewhat old and we were having too many family arguments about the existence of new words. This dictionary certainly has a lot of words in it including large numbers that are ideal for Scrabble that you won't find in many traditional dictionaries. I would have like more definitions and narratives on the words but then the book would become extremely large indeed if that happened.

We enjoy using this during a game of scrabble but it is really very small and I am not sure how they pick what they put into it as it seems rather random, it often doesn't give you definitions, so not good if you want to actually know what the word means that you are spelling.

So glad I got this....Scrabble has changed since 1960 ish when I first played it...all sorts of weird non words are now acceptable..dif? Sox? Maybe now I stand a chance of winning against my more savvy friends!

I don't think I am dedicated enough to get full use from this as I am only a part time scrabble person but will be handy to stop arguments over some words I have no doubt

having used a large scrabble dictionary for years thought I would get an up to date one. A bit surprised at how small this was but it does serve the purpose even if my husband doesnt agree with the words!!

Especially good are the 2-letter summary tables at the front - also good that brief explanations for the words are included in this dictionary (not included in all scrabble books - somethimes they just spell the letters, but you don't learn the meanings).
Small and compact - but still legible with my reading glasses on.

It's a dictionary for scrabble, so it does what it says on the tin but I am surprised how small it is. The writing inside is so small, I have to wear my reading glasses which I dont evev use for paperbacks. So for me it's not as handy as it could be.

with my scrabble dictionary I can now question words that hubby puts on the board - he's dreadful when playing scrabble and also says that his words are in the dictionary - now I have proof one way or the other - excellent service on delivery etc once again
