Scrabble is the classic crossword game where the larger the word the greater the prize. Time to get creative, but don't get caught using a dictionary.

This is a family favorite growing up and has only increased in popularity through games like Words with Friends. To this day, we still play and fortunately, it won't break the bank. This version still has wood racks and tiles so the feel is generally the same as the older versions. We've had our copy for a while and the box is starting to show its age. That being said, if you take care of the box it should last for some time.

My Thoughts:

Scrabble is another game that will always be in my house. And, while I don't play it much anymore, still seems like a good "sit next to the fire and sip some brandy" type of game. Moreover, I think it stimulates the mind and a game that you can play with your kids pretty much anytime. Additionally, the setup is very quick so there's not a lot of planning that really has to go on unlike some of the other games I've reviewed on this site. Lastly, if you are a family that really enjoys the game, maybe investing a nicer, sturdier version is the way to go. I'm not sure if it's on Amazon, but you could find them a local gaming stores.
