Buy from the Mattel shop and you get the authentic Scrabble product
on 21 March 2017
Purchased the board game from the Mattel seller, and (contrary to what some reviews said) this is definitely the original, authentic Scrabble game. It seems that the reviews from 3rd-party sellers get mixed with the actual Mattel listing - so be very aware that some 3rd party sellers might be selling a counterfeit product.
Anyway, this board game is a classic, and is well worth having in the home. The board is folded into quarters for storage (it comes as one piece - not a jigsaw puzzle style board like what someone else said), and is of good quality. The scrabble letters are plastic, as are the letter holders. The game also comes with instructions and a letter bag, but doesn't come with a notepad for score-keeping. I think you can't go wrong with purchasing the authentic Mattel scrabble set, as you know what quality you're going to get.
