SCRABBLE® TO GO™
In our house we just love board games. From my granddaughter who is six to my husband who is well, not quite senior citizen, we all like to have to fun time. Scrabble is one of our top choices and we tend to get quite competitive. My husband and son-in-law play for a long time because they are trying to each win.
Lately my granddaugher has been wanting to play too. She is only 6, going on 7 and the game is rated for 8 and up but she is pretty advanced when it comes to reading so we thought we would give it a try. Although her words were pretty basic compared to when my husband and I play, she actually did pretty good and got lucky with the double word scores a couple of times.
The only drawback to letting her play was that she gets tired of the game before it is over sometimes. With the new
SCRABBLE® TO GO™ game from Winning Moves Games we just got this doesn’t have to be a problem at all. We simply play until she gets tired and then fold the game up to play again another day. The tiles snap in place so they actually stay on the board when you put it in the zippered case.
I initially thought this would only be for taking on vacation but I realized that it is an excellent verison of Scrabble for people who are busy or don’t have the patience to sit through an entire game at one time. It would be perfect for people who wanted to get together on a regular basis for a friendly competitive game.
While we still love our Deluxe turntable edition of Scrabble from the 1980’s this version of Winning Moves Games SCRABBLE® TO GO™ has some advantages that we cannot overlook. It takes up a lot less room and it comes in a very attractive zippered case. Everything fits just perfectly and tiles snap into place and they do not come loose when storing the game to finish later. We can’t do that with the old game and just have to start over if we don’t finish.
