I installed the software onto a new HP desktop running Windows 7 Home Premium, and I got an error message immediately after the installation (telling me to do something in Window's Device Manager, which I saw no way of doing in the Device Manager for Windows 7), but when I (finally) ignored the message and double clicked on the shortcut that was installed on my desktop, the game opened right up. And I can play it without any problem (no error messages or anything) without having the disk in the drive.

It is the same Scrabble edition that is available through "HP Games Powered by Wild Tangent," a link to which came installed on my computer. That option requires players to buy digital coins which are used to play individual games of Scrabble. Or you can purchase the software from HP Games Powered by Wild Tangent for twenty eight dollars and ninety four cents (includes a "backup disk"). Here at Amazon I paid six dollars and change for the same version of Scrabble (since then the seller has raised the price to nine dollars and change).

My CD came in a cheap cardboard jewel case, but the case is irrelevant to me as long as the disk is protected.

I have or at least had an older version of Scrabble software for the PC (made for Windows 95 as I recall), where an effort was made to give the playing board a three dimensional appearance, which detracted from the game, IMO. In addition, that version was not playable unless the CD was in the drive. I'm very pleased with the layout of the Scrabble Champion Edition, and I find it easy on the eyes (you can play it in one of two sizes - full screen - but not widescreen - or a reduced version). It's fast too, meaning that the computer opponent doesn't take long to make its moves.

Before buying this software, I checked through the internet to find out exactly what this new software is and how it differs from the older edition. I had no luck. I wanted to be sure that it ran on Vista and this was the only edition on Amazon's site stating that it was Vista compatible.

Hence I ordered it. The box and the software do not use "JC" in the name. It looks like the same old software sold to meet Vista.

From an operating point of view, I wish it didn't "take over" the computer screen, as it can not be minimized to work on anything else while it is active.

The game plays fine and I'll compare it to a "fee" download that gives you 30 minutes of playing time as a trial before asking for $20 for a license key.

This is half the price for basically the same thing. For the money and the enjoyment, it's worth the price.

For those of you who cannot get enough Scrabble, this game is for you. It has about seven or eight different levels (the hardest level is impossible), with a classic game against the computer with dictionary help and best move help. It also has a timed tournament game that takes the help features away. It keeps track of all your high scores and dates. Works on Vista.

Looked everywhere for Scrabble for Windows 7, read some reviews saying it works even though it doesn't list it in System Requirements. Took a chance and bought it and it installed in 30 seconds and works just fine.

After installing Scrabble Champion Edition JC, it would not run on our Vista pc. I got a message telling me to insert the original disk (the original disk WAS in the drive). I followed the directions provided and sent the analytics to the website provided - twice! It still would not run and it slowed down my system tremendously. I finally uninstalled the software and just gave up. Basically, I wasted my time and money. I miss being able to play Scrabble on our new pc. Unfortunately, I would not recommend this product.

Scrabble Champion Edition JC is a computer game that my friends and I play on a regular basis. I enjoy challenging my brain with spelling games, word finds, scavenger hunts, etc. The several levels of play from beginner to genius offers a chance for anyone to build up their vocabulary. This game has a built in dictionary with a limited word list. Once you purchase this edition of Scrabble, you will never go back to the board version again.

As a novice player...someone who just wants something to keep his mind active when there's some down time...this game is great.

I was shopping around online for Scrabble, but each version was around $20 and if I wanted the disc so I could load it to both of my computers, it would cost an additional $7. Here, I bought it for $5!

It's fun, it keeps my brain active, and there are multiple levels - so sometimes I really challenge myself, and sometimes I play easy so I can win! :-)

I'm a non-pro Scrabble player...I'm just having fun...and I love this game.

Like a few other reviewers, I had my doubts about this CD but bought it anyway and am so glad I did. The JV edition does state that is is compatible with Windows 7, Vista, XP, and ME. It was delivered on time, packaged well, and came in a simple plastic case much like a DVD. It installed without a problem and in a matter of minutes, we were playing Scrabble. Unlike some other reviewers, I had no problems with the game during play. Good news...once you install it, put the CD-ROM away in a safe place because it will download in your programs and provide an icon on your desktop to click on when you want to play. It is much like other versions of Scrabble we had but updated and without Maven and includes many levels of competition. It is great to play Scrabble on our PC again!

Update: If you are having a problem with the game stopping and then resuming, disable your screensaver and make sure other applications are not running such as anti-virus scan, pc tune-up scans, etc. We still have had no problems with this Scrabble version running with Windows 7 Home Premium.
