Editors' Review

+
This virtual version of Scrabble will challenge both newbies and verbal whizzes. The rules of Scrabble follow those of the classic board game, but if you've never played before, the game will explain things. You can practice your skills alone, or you can compete with human or computerized opponents. If you opt for the latter, you can choose the skill of your opponent from one of eight difficulty levels. In our tests, even the easiest AI player was very tough to beat, so less-experienced players may want to turn on the hints. Other features include the ability to play in windowed mode and adjust the volume of the music and sound effects. The game's graphics are surprisingly polished given its nature, though a longer trial period would be nice. Seasoned Scrabble fans are sure to find this program worth the download, though anyone looking for a mental test may find it engrossing.

"RIDICULOUS!!"

March 08, 2012  |  By ncs83

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

I would have a lot of pros if I could play it!

Cons

I can't buy it. It says I'm not within where they can sell it. I live in the United States. On the Continent. It's not like I'm in Hawaii or Alaska!

Summary

They need to broaden where they sell. I'm sure they would make a lot more money!! I definitely would have bought it.

"Doesn't run on Windows 7?????"

December 21, 2011  |  By fkampa

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

??????????

Cons

Well, it would have been nice if it had informed me it wasn't compatible with Windows7 before I did the 10+ meg download. Since the originally downloaded .exe file went out to the web to get the game, it could have checked at that time.

Summary

yuck!

Pros

I love Scrabble

Cons

When I tried to buy it after the 30 free trial, it said they're not authorized to sell it in my area. I'm not in Antarctica. I'm northern Virginia in the good ol' USA.

Good luck.

"frustrating"

October 03, 2011  |  By jkel7

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

quick to operate

Cons

poor player's tray

Summary

I found this game most unsatisfactory.
On many occasions I had for example 6 vowels and one consonant or vice versa while the computer had a number of variations. I found it most discouraging and would not pay for something which would be so frustrating
