Review 6 - Scrabble

Scrabble, surely one of the oldest word games ever made, but for sure the best ever made.

Review - Scrabble

Designer: Alfred Butts
Year Published: 1948
NÂș Players: 2-4

Purchasing - Being the best word game and one of the most popular games in the world, you can find almost everywhere. I purchased on ebay brand new for quite a small amount.

Components - Who doesn't love to build words out of small squares of letters, that's super cool, love the components.

Game play - It's a game super easy to learn, and easy to master... if you're a dictionary!! It's always a fun game to play, the game play is always changing, because new words on the board gives more possibilities.


Resumed Rules :
The game is very simple, each player has 7 letters on hand, letters have different values and on the board you have some bonus (ex: word 2x or letter 2x). So, one player at the time, has to make one of three things, place a valid word on the table; pass or exchange some letters from hand. So the game keeps going until all players pass and can't make a valid word, then the player with the highest score wins.

Evaluation - I give a 8 out of 10. By far the best word game I know.
