4 is a lucky number, I guess, May 4, 2010
This is a fun game. It's just like regular Scrabble, except that there's always 4 cards down. The cards must always form a legitimate 4 letter word. Players can change the word by putting cards on top of the original 4 cards. The game ends when someone runs out of cards. I still think regular Scrabble is better, but this is pretty good!
Fun! Smart! Great for Travel!, May 2, 2010
The whole family likes this game! We play it on airplanes, in the car, or just sitting at the kitchen table. It's a twist on the original scrabble where you make as many four letter words as you can (not that kind!). The smaller words allow the entire family to compete on even playing field from age 7 to 45. My little one loves that he can sometimes beat his 17 year old brother depending on the hand he receives. It's a great way to pass time on airplanes and on road trips. You can even have kids play it alone to see if they can get through all the cards. Great idea!!!
Too Easy - Buy the original Scrabble, April 21, 2010
I bought this game along with the Monopoly card game. Whereas we love the Monopoly card game in that you can play a quick Monopoly-like game in 20 minutes or so when you don't have time for the whole game, this Scrabble card game was mind-numbing. Way way too easy with no excitement. You are limited to 4-letter words and too many choices for letters. We found ourselves using the same words over and over even though our entire family is pretty well-versed in the English language and enjoy Scrabble when we have time. Pass on this game. There are way better card games out there for the same or less money. This one sits on our shelf collecting dust.
Great at a small party, April 14, 2010
The most ideal playing setting is with 4-5 people which is generally the size of groups I hang out with. It's a great buy!
