I received a complimentary Scrabble game to facilitate my review. The opinions in this post are 100% mine. You can read my full disclosure policy here.
Scrabble is such a fun classic game. I love there there are no batteries so you can play any time. We were given the opportunity to review it and had such a good time playing! My daughter is 8 years-old now, so she’s just at the lower age limit and we did have to help her a bit but she did great.
I mean, who doesn’t need help with my husband playing words like ‘solvent’? Tricky guy. (I won, by the way. 😉 )
Scrabble is even more fun that it was years ago because they have some new options, team play and more.
Whether you love your SCRABBLE game straight up or have a more adventurous streak, this option-packed game is for you! Play Power Tiles to spice up your strategy and sweeten your score, Team up with a partner to trade tiles and share scores. Or mix and match options for a game that’s totally your own!
We kept it pretty simple to start and really enjoyed playing with my daughter. The thing I like most about this game is that it’s just a really simple crossword concept. Nothing difficult to teach kids and it definitely gets them thinking and is educational! Speaking of educational…
Check out the National School Scrabble Program!
Because of the educational benefits of using SCRABBLE in the classroom, Hasbro has teamed up with teachers and community leaders to create School SCRABBLE Clubs. Designed for kids in 4th through 8th grades, School SCRABBLE Clubs can be established in the classroom, as an after-school club or through other community organizations, such as a library. Kids play in pairs, making it even more fun when they play high value letters on a triple word score! High fives for everyone!
If you are interested in starting or supporting a School SCRABBLE club (or have a teacher to pass this info to), it’s so easy to get started. You can learn more about the program, register a club, watch videos and find tips about how to start a club on the School SCRABBLE Club website.
As a way to bring all School SCRABBLE Clubs together, players from across the U.S. are invited to compete for the title of National School SCRABBLE champions. The 2014 National School SCRABBLE Tournament will take place at Hasbro’s new facilities in Providence, Rhode Island on April 25-27. Maybe we’ll see you and your kids there!
