It's time to pull out your dictionaries and put your thinking caps on! Hasbro has added more ways to play their classic word game Scrabble! Now including Power Tiles your family is going to enjoy plotting new strategies of play with this family favorite. Read on to learn more about the new game play and the National School Scrabble Championship. 
I don't remember the first time I played Scrabble but I know it was with my grandmother. She had one of the classic Scrabble boards that would spin on a turntable and she would help us if we got stuck. I remember being so proud playing three letter words back then, and my grandmother telling me I was doing a great job. She would sometimes leave the triple word and double word score spots open just for me knowing it would help me make my little words add up. Those are fun memories for me of playing with my grandmother and cousins.
Scrabble is still just as much fun as ever and I was excited to receive this game for review. My husband and I have had time to play, and it was no holds barred. Neither of us were saving the triple word score for the other-we play to win! With the new Power Tiles you can save those high scoring spots for yourself. It's like reserved parking for your next word. These new game tiles can really make things interesting or annoying depending on which side you fall. The Booper was so excited to join in the fun, so we let him hold the letter bag and drawl out letters for us as we needed them. This proved to make the game slightly more exciting since he decided some of the letters were his, and didn't want to give up his stack of vowels. 
It's Back! Time for students from grades fourth through eighth to register for the School Scrabble Championship! On April 26-27, 2014 teams from the US and Canada will meet up to compete through eight rounds of competition. The first prize winner will receive $10,000!

  1. I would play my honey. I have no strategy, that's probably why I don't usually win.
