This is the version of Scrabble with nearly twice the squares and letters as the standard game to extend play for true lexicon aficionados. With a 21 x 21 grid—441 spaces—this board provides Scrabble enthusiasts more room to unload their letter tiles than the traditional 15 x15 grid, possibly to modify an opponent's Scrabble-legal QUANT into a devastating QUANTIFY Quadruple Word Score. To facilitate extended game play, this set includes 200 plastic letter tiles, twice as many as a standard game, which also allows cruciverbalophiles to create words not possible with standard Scrabble. The 14 1/2" square game board can be angled and rotated so all players get an equally clear view, yet has pegs around each letter space that hold tiles firmly in place. For two to four players. Ages 8 and up. 2" H x 14 1/2" W x 14 1/2" L. (3 lbs.)
“We found that with regular scrabble we always run out of room at the edges for more words. This game gives us all the room and extra letters we need with the added bonus that they stay put when you are adding new words.”- M, New Jersey

ups and downs (no pun intended!)
from anywhere, us
the extended play time is great and I use it with my mother who suffers from "memory issues". It is a way to keep her active, but I find I struggle with the board itself. It doesn't rotate the way the advertisement/description leads you to believe. I would have rather saved the money I spent on this and got the premium edition with real rotating board, wood letter squares and wood letter racks. Ok game, but not great. Found myself fighting with the tiles and the pegs on the board to get my word on the grid. It is a great game to get one thinking and exercise one's brain. Would recommend it on that alone.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

We have not yet tried the game, but it looks very interesting.

My 91-year-old mother was thrilled with this new extended Scrabble game I gave her for Christmas. She plays at least three times a month and sometimes more. It keeps her brain young!We both like how the little pegs hold the tiles where they belong. It is a little hard to take all the tiles off after a game. We finally put a towel over the board and turned it over.
nice gifr for scrabble players

fun to play
Really enjoy this game.
from Lakewood, CO.
A friend and I get together weekly to play chess and scrabble. This game makes an already enjoyable game even more so. The only thing about the game that I did not anticipate is that it took us almost 3 hours to finish. Other than that, if you enjoy scrabble you will enjoy super scrabble.

Very happy with our purchase

We love our new scrabble game- our scores are double and you can get into the game more because it takes longer to play.

more of a good thing
By Ivas girl
from Monroe Oh
There is no method to easily clear the board at the end of a game. We found that by putting a dish towel over it and with 2 people helping you can flip it over and gather the tiles in the towel and them put them back in the bag.Otherwise it is a fun variation on a favorite game.
