    Great game

    This is a great game to play either as a group or with just one other person. Work on your vocabulary and your mental quickness and aptitude at the same time. This new Diamond format is very easy to use and allows for tiles to fit into a raised edge box so as to avoid sliding. I would definitely recommend this to families with children.

    Scrabble diamond anniversary

    Use this game a lot. I do not like the curved tile holders and really, really do not like the color changes on the board. Makes no sence to have an anniversary product and change the colors. The diamonds for blanks are OK. Would recommend it to others for traveling.

    Great for traveling

    We enjoy this version of Scrabble to take to the lake or to a friends,but... for some reason they changed the colors of the bonus squares, making it confusing ,when you rotate the board it knocks your tile holder over , so the board could be tiny bit higher ,and finally if a storage space was provided for scorepad and pencil it would be all inclusive for travel

    Scrabble Diamond Anniversary Deluxe Edition

    Love the portability of the game. Place to store everything and then put away. Love the wheels that enable us to view easily.

    Love Scrabble, hate this board

    I am a huge Scrabble fan but this particular board is poorly designed. I bought it because it looked like a good travel game, but the trays that slide in the sides were always falling out; I had to wrap the game in duct tape to take it out. Also, the board is an odd size -- rectangular, not square -- that doesn't fit well on most tables and knocks over your tiles when you spin it. I do not recommend you buy this version!

    Take Scrabble anywhere!

    We play a lot of scrabble in our family, including when we head off to our beach vacation every year. Playing the regular version of the game can be a hassle since the box can tip open, sending letter tiles everywhere and everytime you turn the board to take a turn you risk losing your game. The Scrabble Diamond edition was worth every penny! The tiles lock into place and come with a bag that can be pulled closed. There are storage drawers on the board to hold tiles, tile stands, a small scorepad and pen and more. The game also has sliders on the bottom which make turing the board a breeze- and safe! Then when you are finished it snaps closed and is ready to be stored or to travel. This was a great investment and we have enjoyed taking it many places without any accidents. A must for any game lover!

    We bought two!

    This is, hands down, the best Scrabble board ever! It is completely self contained, compact for storage and travel as well as durable, and the tiles are wood, not plastic. All of this without being a mini board, (as other travel boards are)! We bought two as we know that, if/when we want another they'll no longer be available. BTW, extra tile sets are available directly from Hasbro at: http://www.hasbro.com/customer-service/

    Fun

    Scrabble can be a long game but with the nice features the deluxe edition has: indented board for pieces and the spinning component it is more fun! The nice thing is it's all packagaed nicely into a sturdy plastic case that you can bring anywhere and won't get ruined in the game closet. The pieces come in a nice bag and there are two storaged drawers within the board to hold the bag and the tile holders.

    Ingenius setup

    I love how easy the turntable is. The tiles fit easily and do not slip.
    It is the best setup I have ever used. Even playing with young children, no frustation of tile moving or falling in other area. The carrying case is great. Everything fits no well. It does not take forever to retrive and put away. They have ingenius storage compartments that fit under the board. It folds away easily. No awkward carboard boxes to tote around, or tape together after years of usage. The plastic case is solid, light and easy to handle. It has an excellent price. Congradulations to the inventor.

    Excellent buy

    Letters fit nicely and stay in their spots on the board, the game board swivels around and storage of the game is compact. Now if I could only beat my wife in the darn game!
