About the game

How many words can you make with these letters?

Got a minute? That's about all you need to play this addictive, fast-paced version of SCRABBLE. Just line up the letter tiles, then shuffle and slide them to find words fast and beat the clock!

My Thoughts

This game is perfect to bring at camping, on a plane, on a retreat or any other place where you want to stretch your brain cells.

I will be honest with you.   I have seen this in the store since last Fall and it didn’t attract me at first.  But as the months went by I kept seeing the package.  One day I picked it up and read more about it.   I liked what I read and asked Hasbro to see if I could review it.   They agreed and send me one.   I didn’t know what to expect from it and I am pleasantly surprised.   I enjoy it quite a bit to be honest and love the fact that it is small enough that I can carry it anywhere I want.

The content is simple – you get five electronic letter tiles in a storage box.   Three games are included in Scrabble FLASH.C1B4CA795056900B10296F0932328D12

Game 1 will permit you to find as many words you can with the tiles.  You can do words containing 3, 4 or 5 letters.   When the time is up you will get you score as well as the maximum words possible you could have done.   

Game 2 will challenge you to find as many 5 letter words as possible.  Once you have one word found, the letters will change and you have to find a new word.  

Game 3 is similar to game 2 but it can be played with multiple players.

Each game can also be player with 4 letter tiles instead of the five.  Talk about challenging especially if English is your second language…  *grin*

To play any of these games, you will need to be fast.   But with practice you become faster.    My son, who is 10 years old, “stole” my Scrabble Flash one day and was playing with it.   I am pleased to see him being interested in word games.  I find word games will help him (and his siblings) to be stretch their knowledge and discover new words sometimes. 

This game is particularly interesting for homeschoolers as it will help your child – and you as well – to play with letters to find as much words as possible.    A perfect game to take a break from the school hours and still learn at the same time!

Pssst!   I have since discovered that two other FLASH games will be coming out later this year – SIMON and YATZEE.    They look amazing if you ask me from what I have seen on a video.    I am looking forward to discover those as well.
Scrabble FLASH is available at your favourite toy store.
