Today I have a really fun contest for you- the new Scrabble Flash from Hasbro! The first person I thought of when I got this game was my grandma. She LOVES Scrabble! It is one of her favorite games of all times, and she plays regularly. I called her to tell her that I had a new kind of Scrabble for her called Scrabble Flash, where you use interactive SmartLink tiles to build your words, she got really excited. I had planned to bring the game over the next night so she could play it with the kids, and I was going to leave it with her so she could keep it for her next game night. She plays all the time with my aunts and her friends. However, that flood I have been posting about got in the way of my plans. We are still stuck at home, but at least the waters are receding! We have not played it with her yet, but because the contest will need to end soon, I want to post this as soon as possible. I also got to see this game in action at the NY Toy Fair Hasbro event, and I know many of you checked out my photostream and videos.
I am so excited to get this to my grandma. I will post photos as soon as we can get it to her. So for now, here is some more information about Scrabble Flash!
“It’s up to you to find words in a “flash” with this fun, electronic version of the classic SCRABBLE game! Use the interactive SmartLink tiles to build your words and they’ll flash and beep with each word you make! They’ll also automatically time your turns and display your score with the maximum possible score. Put your skills to the test with three different solo and competitive games and slide, swap and shuffle your way to a win. It’s fast-paced, addictive, word-building fun!
Includes 5 SmartLink letter tiles, storage box and rules.
Includes 5 “button cell” batteries. For 1 or more players.
Ages 8 and up. “
These tiles are so great for kids as well as adults. They can help the younger ones learn to spell, and the older ones practice their spelling, vocabulary, and sharpen their mental skills.
Plus, Scrabble has a championship coming up!
