We love to play Scrabble but this game did nothing for us.
zhabazon
There was no alcohol involved, however, I think it would greatly improve the game should adults play without kids.
Wandrwoman
The device, when slammed has pretty loud sound effects/music, which I found annoying after a short while.

As a Scrabble Slam owner and fan, I was really interested in trying this new twist on the game! If you haven't played the original card game before, here's a little overview. In Scrabble Slam (the original game), prior to play, four cards are placed in the middle of the table, spelling a common word. The game then begins. Without taking turns, players each hold an equal fraction of the card deck, and change that word one letter at a time, going as quickly as they can and calling out each new word as it is formed. Each card has two sides, and either side/letter can be played. The first person out of cards wins the game. Depending on the players' skill level, it can be fast-paced and chaotic--or frustrating as you struggle to think of words!

Scrabble Turbo Slam takes the same game, but changes a couple aspects of gameplay. The most obvious is that there's something else to pay attention to with the new electronic centerpiece. It blinks (and plays music--but thankfully you can turn this feature off!), and at random times it will make a noise. The first person to slam the large button at the top of the unit after hearing this prompt is allowed to take an action card, as the unit goes into pause mode and waits for gameplay to resume.

That comes to the second big change--the inclusion of action cards. The action cards can be positive (such as giving cards to others or removing them from gameplay altogether)--or negative (getting them yourself!). What I really appreciate about the electronic unit and action cards being added to the game is that they provide possibilities for players to lose cards due to speed, rather than merely through word-creating skill. In the original game, if one person had better word-creating skills, the other player(s) might be left holding the cards . .

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Being a fan of the original Scrabble, I was intrigued by the new Scrabble Turbo Slam! (The exclamation point is in the name of the game, and is not indicative of my level of excitement.) The concept is simple: deal all of the lettered cards to each player (either 2 or 4 players), form a starter word using four of the cards, and race to ditch your hand by placing one letter card at a time to form a new word out of the existing word. Along the way, the electronic turbo slam timer will buzz, at which time the person who slaps it the quickest, takes an action card. The first player to rid themselves of all cards is declared the winner. Repeat for another 4 minutes of fun!

The game does require quicker thinking than original Scrabble, but its novelty wears thin after a round or two. The turbo slam machine is a little annoying, but at least the music can be turned off. The unit requires 3 AAA batteries, and I have no sense yet of how long they'll last.

Overall, the game is great if you have 5 or 10 minutes to kill, but if you're looking for a more rewarding game, stick to regular Scrabble, or even Scrabble Slam -- minus the "Turbo."

P.S. The packaging is a little excessive. The cards are housed inside the turbo unit, which is about 3"x7"x2", but the box is a good 12"x12"x3". A blister pack would be a more ideal way of merchandising the game. Just sayin'.

I love Scrabble but the Turbo Slam version is mostly suited for kids under the age of eight, in my opinion. If you are thinking to use it as a board game you can play with adult friends or your significant other, I'm afraid you might be disappointed. The novelty factor is enough to entertain one for thirty minutes or so but after that, the game just gets boring.

The music is quite annoying, although you can turn it off, which is a plus. The intellectual value for anybody who is not a small child is really very low. I found the game to be severely under-challenging. The fun factor in constant slamming of the button and trying to be the first one to slam it gets really old really fast.

There are many other board games you can buy for the same price that will be a lot more exciting and will hold your interest a lot longer. Of course, if you are a hardcore fan of both Scrabble and games that test the basic speed of reaction, you might enjoy it.

Also, you have to remember that the Turbo Slam requires 3 AAA batteries which are not included, so make sure you have some in the house before the game arrives.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My feelings about this product are mixed -- We've long been fans of Scrabble, and thought we'd shake things up a bit by trying a different variation of the game. The Electronic Turbo Slam device, first required (3)- AAA batteries (not included). The device, when slammed has pretty loud sound effects/music, which I found annoying after a short while. I also thought there was too much commotion for me with everyone trying to slap down cards to change the letters, and I wasn't crazy about making just (4) letter words. As an adult, baby boomer, I much prefer the standard game of Scrabble -- quiet, relaxed and educational, and with more word potential.

I can see that this would be a great game for parents to play with young children to help them get interested in learning new words -- I would use it as an educational tool, instead of having them feel pressured to make words at record speed.

On the other hand, the speed and noise factor, would probably appeal to lots of teens. Overall, the game is relatively inexpensive, and worth a try for families who enjoy word faster paced, action filled games.
