Hasbro was so very kind again to send us another fun game to review, SCRABBLE! I did not grow up having a family game night and that may be one of the reasons why I so love them now! Especially, if I know the game will help my kids in spelling!!! Not only do we get to have fun spending time together and connecting as a family but, we are helping their education.
Now, of course our three-year-old is not able to play this game so we played after he was in bed or taking a nap. It is truly funny to see the words everyone tries to play. We have fun and my husband shows off how great of a speller he is.
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!
NATIONAL SCHOOL SCRABBLE PROGRAM
For years, teachers have known that SCRABBLE is a fun and innovative way for kids to develop vocabulary, spelling, math and spatial relation skills. To encourage SCRABBLE playing in the classroom, Hasbro offers teachers a specially-priced School SCRABBLE Kit. Each kit costs $95 and includes 6 specially designed wooden SCRABBLE boards, 12 racks, 6 sets of tiles and 6 tile bags plus the most current word source, The Official SCRABBLE Players Dictionary, Fourth Edition.
You can learn more about this great program and special offer here.
I wanted to also let you know that the School Scrabble Tournament registration is open! Teams (between grades 4-8) from the USA and Canada are invited to participate in the multi-day event that includes 8 rounds of competition and fun on-site events.
