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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
