Great puzzle game... sort of reverse Scrabble
September 11, 2001

We have difficulty playing [page scan/se=0050/sf=category/fi=stockall.asc/ml=20]Scrabble with some people because they ponder for 10 minutes over their rack for each word. Hence, we have to use a timer.

Oddly, this game, which is sort of like communal Scrabble, benefits from slower play. Those who flip tiles too quickly miss the fun, collective, puzzle-solving aspects of the game.

For a short recap, Scrabble tiles are placed on the board face down. Three are turned up and then, one after another, tiles are turned up creating more letters visible on the table. At any time a person can request 'think time' to pore over the letters.

The goal: 1) turn the mixed-up letters (at least 4) on the board into words (can't use plurals directly from the board), and thus claim them for yourself (or, better yet, your team) or 2) using letter(s) on the board and all the letters of someone else's already-claimed word, make a new and totally different word and claim it for yourself.

It really is much more like a puzzle than a competitive game, though there are scoring rules.

One reason I'm placing this review for a game so long out of print is because people usually purchase this game used and are always asking if they have all the tiles. Here is the breakdown of the letters included in the game (and I suspect you could make your own copy from a couple of copies of Scrabble):

A-16, B-4, C-4, D-8, E-22, F-4, G-6, H-6, I-14, J-2, K-2, L-8, M-4, N-10, O-14, P-4, Q-2, R-12, S-8, T-10, U-8, V-2, W-2, X-2, Y-4, Z-2. That's a total of 180 tiles, all with the same scoring values as used in Scrabble.
