1.0 out of 5 stars Rather disappointed well below my expectations, September 29, 2006
This review is from: Scrabble Deluxe Turntable Game (Toy)
I purchased this game believing it was very similar if not the same as the 80's version; it is not even close... I then returned the game rather than deal with its inferior quality... I later wrote the following to the manufactures.

" I purchased a Deluxe Scrabble game and later returned it when i found the tiles tend to slide along the playing board as the grid is not raised high enough to prevent this from occuring. Additionally the board is much harder to read than the previous deluxe version as the newer editions writing seems dull when compared to the older version. Basicly the operation, look and feel of the new deluxe game seems significantly lower in quality. What year did you start producing these newer (cheaper) versions of the deluxe game? I would like to find an older one perhaps on the used market because this one is just way too cheap. Too bad product development had to change what was once a very good product. Incidently, I noticed this evening that I am not the only person who has complained in writing. The Amazon.com reviews of this game overwhelmingly portray the same story; wish i had read them before i made the purchase. Hopefully someone will recognize this at MB/Hasbro and return the game to its older form or sell the rights to another manufacturer with a greater comitment to product quality..."

Thank- you for the comments, I was looking to buy an even better edition then the one I now own. I will keep my 80's edition and try and buy new tiles.

GREAT review! Talked me out of buying one, along with everyone else's opinion. I'm glad you brought it to MB's attention what other amazon reviewers had to say and you threw in the dig about commitment to product quality. This is why Times named YOU (us) Man of the Year.

The quality of the current "Deluxe" edition game board is very disappointing. I agree. I've got the old one with the raised boundaries and it is far, far superior. The rest of the game is quite nice but with a lousy board it doesn't matter much.
