Great game. i never really played the old version. I bought it and love it. you can play with 2 people and there are 3 different games to play. its small. it comes in a sleek box and smaller or the same size as a good deck of cards. Overall tons of fun. I might buy more just for the friends. Its good for adults and kids. "The future of old Game boards to go" Best gift for the holidays
Fun game that you can play alone or with a group. Cool how it keeps score electronically. After your turn it tells you how many words you made and how many you could have made. Whoa, better expand my vocabulary!
I got this for my older sister so she can play it whens she is bored at collage And We love it! It's cute, small but big enough to see it good, cool color and so on. I can really tell this is going to be sold before the holiday season is goon.
I first played this game because my grandson got one for christmas, LOVED it. It's fun to play by yourself or with a partner. My grandson has learned a lot of new words just by ramdomly putting letters together. I loved it so much I bought two, one for me and my husband and one for my father-in-law.
All three games are pretty fun! My favorite is Game 1: the goal is to form as many 3-5 letter words as possible within the given time limit. It is super fast pace and makes you think on the spot. I like how I have to move the tiles around and it is registered electronically, that makes it more interactive. Pros:
1) Comes with a storage box for the 5 tiles; so it’s easy to keep it all together
2) Storage box and tiles are very compact and lightweight; so it’s easy to bring anywhere
3) Easy to turn the tiles on/off
4) Keeps track of the score and compares it with the maximum possible score; it gives the player more drive to continue playing to achieve that goal
5) Beeps when the same word has been formed without counting that word combination again Cons:
1) Sometimes it’s difficult to switch from one game to another without powering down the tiles Despite one con, this is a great game if you like word games!
I bought this for my 10 year old for her birthday and she loved it! It helps her with her spelling practice which is wonderful. It has a little black case for the letters which is nice so everything stays intact and doesn't get lost. Mom even loves to play it!
its a great game we have had fun and can be played alone and its educational
I GOT THIS FOR HIM LAST CHRISTMAS AND HE CANT STOP TALKING ABOUT IT. HE IS 9 AND HE CHALLENGES EVERYONE. EVEN ADULTS! THIS IS A GREAT LEARNING TOOL. IT IS EVEN A GREAT THING TO JUST DO TO RELAX AND LET YOUR BRAIN CALM DOWN.
Seems like it would be a great tool for helping kids to spell, but it has no "beginner" modes to even give such a possibility. Other then that, it works as expected and is fun. Sometimes you spell words you didn't even know existed when placing the letters together. Great way to play a quick game of mini scrabble. Worth the $20 I payed for it.
I was so excited with the concept of the game, but so far, I am just not that impressed. I bought 2 of them, one for my home, and one for the grandchidren. First, one of the cubes battery was run down, so I still need to replace it. The cubes time you but there is not much notice. A little music would be nice. I am not sure we will play it much.
This Version of Scrabble is Brilliant. It changes it up enough to be new and Techy for the kids. Simple directions, and just plain fun. I really like the fact that there are no small letter pieces to have to pick up after.
I was a little wary of this game when I first got it. It's called "Scrabble" Flash, but there's nothing Scrabbley about it. There's no board, no double word or triple letter scores, no strategy involved in beating an opponent. It's just letters that you use to make words. But. It's addictive. I started by playing the first of the three possible settings. You get five letters and make as many words as you can in 30 seconds or so. I thought, well, this would be good for kids to practice their spelling, but that's about it. Then when I was done it said that I'd only gotten 12 of a possible 27 words. Then I was hooked. I played for hours trying to increase my score, and I found I was learning new words as I played, accidentally making words I'd never seen before. The squares are sturdy and come with a travel case, which is handy, although I wouldn't recommend taking it on a plane or anywhere the little *correct!* beeping noise would annoy people. Highly recommended for kids of all ages and adults.
As a crossword-puzzle enthusiast, I love word games. Scrabble Flash has 3 game options, 2 which can be played individually. My favorite game (an individual competition against time) is the first option: Player is given 5 letters to arrange into words (of 3 letters or more). The tiles beep each time a word is counted, signaling that the player can shuffle the tiles to create a new word. It is quite addicting, because the player is trying to achieve the maximum score, which is shown at the end. At times, it is nearly impossible, because the time limit (1 minute, 20 seconds) is the same whether the game has 14 or 38+ total valid combinations. Pros: Its compact size makes it ideal for on-the-go entertainment. It easily travels in the included case that is durable and snaps tightly shut. Batteries are also included. Learn words as you play; some of the acceptable combinations are quite surprising. This game can keep a player occupied for awhile. Cons: Listed as one of the pros as well, the unexpected valid combinations keep you on your toes. The converse also applies: Lots of words commonly recognized as standard English do not count in this game. It takes time to learn what's accepted and what's not. Sometimes, the tiles get temperamental, by not counting words that are in fact valid. Repeated attempts to ensure the word counts cost time. All in all, I thoroughly enjoy this game – and am committed to conquering it!
Bought this for Thanksgiving family gathering and have used it for a Holiday party, and it has been a hit! Will use it at Our Family Christmas get together.
I love word games, but this product freezes up periodically. Also, when you form a word, it takes the tiles a few seconds to register that fact...and by then I'm seeing new words to form and have to wait! It also registers obscure words when you don't even realize you've made a word. I'm keeping the game, but it's aggravating at times.
The grandkids loved this game and it is a great learning tool.
Am a big fan of the original Scrabble game so was pretty excited to play this. Unfortunately, it was a disappointing experience. Granted, I'm not sure if I have a defective product since I was unable to get the fifth cube to sync up with the other cubes. This left me to put together four letter words. And, this wasn't hard at all considering how few four letter words there are. This got boring fast. Maybe, it would be fun for kids but wasn't stimulating for me in the least bit.
Does not keep score that way I thought it would. This game is great for younger children trying to learn and spell their basic words or lexicon. My 10 year old thought it was too easy.
If played like those of us over 40 would play it, it's a great game. I bought it in hopes that it would be a learning tool. However, my 11 year old daughter caught on very quickly that if you just quickly rearrange the letters at random the cubes will make words. She had no idea what the words were, but her goal was getting points. After she figured this out, the game ceased to be interesting to her.
I'm sure the the testing at the the site went well, because the kids were probably taught ahead of time to make "real" words. But if you're too smart you can outsmart the game.
this will help my 5 yr old develope her spelling and word identification skills. The entire family can have fun and quality time at the same time
