Scrabble Flash offers a compact, modern version of the classic game that people of all vocabulary levels can enjoy. Great for players eight years and older, this game features five SmartLink tiles that keep track of your words and points electronically. Play one of the two solo games, or swap tiles to win against a friend. Ideal for road trips or family vacations, Scrabble Flash delivers word-building excitement in a convenient, portable size.
Offers three game possibilities for either individual or group play. View larger.
The electronic tiles "read" each other's letters when they touch. View larger.
With only five tiles and a lightweight storage box, Scrabble Flash is both portable and well within the word power of younger players. The game starts with a chime as each of the interactive SmartLink tiles displays a letter. Tiles can "read" each other's letters when they touch as you shuffle them around to make a word. When you've made a word, the tiles light up and beep, and you can continue to the next word. Once your time is up, the tiles digitally display your score. When one game just isn't enough, press the reset button and the tiles will flash a new combination of letters.
Three Game Possibilities for Solo or Group Play
Scrabble Flash offers three game possibilities for either individual or group play. The Flash option asks players to make as many words as they can from the same five letters in 75 seconds--each five-letter word adds five seconds to the clock.
In Five Letter Flash, a player finds one five-letter word and then receives five new letters, trying to spell as many words as possible in the allotted 75 seconds.
In the third option, Pass Flash, players pass the tiles around. When one player has formed a five-letter word within the time limit, they pass the tiles to the next player, who gets five new letters. If a player doesn't spell a word quickly enough, he or she is eliminated from the round, and everyone else continues until all but one player has been eliminated.
To make things easier for younger players, each game can be played with only four tiles. The game's flexible format makes solo play fun too.
Easy to Get Started
With the simple setup and easy directions, young first-time players will be able to choose a game and play Scrabble Flash in no time at all. The 2-inch tiles are easy to read and are made of thick plastic for easy handling, so you can set up and move through a game quickly.
Batteries are included and installed.
What's in the Box
Five SmartLink cubes, five CR2032 batteries, storage box, and instruction booklet.

I had hoped to play with more than the usual 4 for Scrabble, but after trying it out with a few friends, I'm thinking larger groups will get bored quick because only one person is "playing" at a time.
Two complaints: If one cube breaks, I'd bet the entire game is ruined because I doubt you can just make do and play with four. Most games if you lose a piece or two you can fudge it, but not with this. And since the cubes are electronic, one long fall or one spill and they may be ruined. Second, the directions are lacking a bit. My friend and I, two pretty tech and game savvy people, couldn't figure out exactly how to change game and continue game between turns, etc.
For the full $30 price, I'd probably stay away, but if you find it on sale, try it out!
Game play moves very quickly and does NOT have a pause function, so if you are constantly being interrupted, you will not do well in your game.
The game play is fairly straight forward with the idea being to create as many 3, 4, and 5 letter words as you can with the five letters given before time expires. The trick is moving quickly to align the cubes so they will recognize you've made a word. Most of the words you'd use in a typical game of Scrabble can be used here, but you HAVE to align the little cubes properly or you won't get credit for the word. The instructions and a separate READ ME FIRST paper detail how to align the cubes, but it will still take you a game or two to get used to the quick shuffling motion needed to make words and move on to the next word. Also, you have to put all of the cubes together after time runs out to get your score. It states this in the instructions, but it is easy to forget after the rush of your first game or two.
This game is definitely not for young children as the lack of vocabulary will frustrate them. A good rule of thumb is their ability to play Scrabble. If they can play the full game with a minimum of frustration, then they should be able to handle Flash well. This would also be a good vocabulary builder for upper elementary and middle school students as it forces them to rearrange letters quickly to form words.
The game also has a multi-player mode, which allows people to trade back and forth with the lowest score dropping after each round. It also can be played with only four tiles, creating 2,3, and 4 letter words instead of 5. It sounds like it would be easier, but trust me, it isn't.
Overall, this is a solid game which can keep a solo player occupied for an afternoon, which is what many players of this type of game are really looking for in a word game. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone who likes word games, especially Scrabble lovers.
1. The black and grey letter images are not very easy to read. How about a little color and more definition? The displays remind me of the first attempts at electronic devices.
2. You can only read the letters if you are looking directly down on them from above. This makes it nearly impossible to watch others as they play.
3. Right answers and repeat answers are noted with an audible beep. Correct answers darken, but sometimes you can't tell the difference between correct combinations and repeated combinations. There should be more distinct responses for the two results. If color were added, repeat answers could turn red, correct answers could flash green.
4. Larger tiles would be helpful for older eyes.
5. As with other reviews, some valid combinations never scored, the game needed to be reset frequently, and words that don't exist scored.
6. I wish there were more multiple player options.
I guess this sounds more like an enhancement request for Scrabble, than a review for potential buyers! I hope they read this because I will definitely snap up a new, improved version!
