It's just Scrabble
April 17, 2007

I like this game and it's one where you can learn while you play. The problem is that you really need to have a similar sized vocabulary to the person/people you are playing against or the result will be lopsided. I like a lot of word games and Scrabble is good when I'm pitted against a person with a similar vocabulary. But, when I play against an attorney with a vast vocab I get destroyed and when I play against a younger person with a limited vocab then I destroy them.

There is some strategy in terms of getting on the double and triple letter/word score spaces and not allowing others to build on your words to get big results (eg. triple word score). Nonetheless, the game really boils down to how many words do you know.

It's alright, but it's just Scrabble.

Fun and Useful

Excellent fun for long winter evenings and cozy weekend afternoons. Being a non-native English speaker, I also found it educational since it forces me to recall words I rarely use and enables learning new ones from my opponent. My boyfriend recently bought a travel version of Scrabble, and we had great fun playing it during long plane and train rides these holidays.

This is a classic for a reason, but...
January 13, 2005

part of the reason is that it is OLD. Very old. Like about 50 years old which means it was desgined for a time when people did not have a lot of distractions. They could either watch baseball (boring), listen to baseball on the radio (even more boring), or go to church. I think this partly explains why Scrabble has been so popular for so long.

Actually I rated the game a 4 because it is truly a great strategy word game (I would have rated it a 3+ if it were possible so i rounded up). My only complaint is that some people take for ever to take their turn (partly because there is so much strategy and partly because there are so many options) which can make the game boring. If everyone at the table is playing at the same speed, then this is actually an excellent game. Perhaps with a sand timer, I would rate this game with 5 stars. I personally like faster paced games like Boggle better.
