Scrabble- The Classic Word Game Review and Giveaway

Let's face it, Scrabble is one of the most classic games known. Ages 8 and up and up to 4 players can play this awesome game. My husband and I had the opportunity to have this awesome game in our household. He plays a game on his phone similar to this, I knew he would kick my butt, but it was worth it! 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! Place all letters in the pouch, or face down beside the board, and mix them up. Draw for first play. The player with the letter closest to "A" plays first. A blank tile beats any letter. Return the letters to the pool and remix. All players draw seven new letters and place them on their racks. Now the game begins!
 Remember that play passes to the left, and use your tiles to make words on the board. Blanks: The two blank tiles may be used as any letters. When playing a blank, you must state which letter it represents. It remains that letter for the rest of the game.
 You may use a turn to exchange all, some, or none of the letters. To do this, place your discarded letter(s) facedown. Draw the same number of letters from the pool, then mix your discarded letter(s) into the pool. This ends your turn. The game ends when all letters have been drawn and one player uses his or her last letter; or when all possible plays have been made
It is pretty simple and fun to play! If you need a refresher on how to play and keep score, you can do so here. Keep score and have fun. Remember, it is a game and fun is what it is all about. This is great to teach your kids new words too!
