Play it Anytime, Anywhere with SmartLink Tiles
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.

Scrabble Flash is a great way to get your Scrabble fix if you're short on time, have nobody to play Scrabble with, or if you're just looking for a different twist on the game. There are three different versions of Scrabble Flash that you can choose from. Game 1 is for playing solo, Game 2 is for playing with friends, and Game 3 is also for playing with friends, but adds elimination to the mix.

Scrabble Flash gets big points from me for using 2032 button batteries- these are readily available and don't require a trip to the obscure battery store. The game gets even bigger points from me for including the first set of batteries with the game. There's hardly any set-up. Just peel the films off the faces of the five game-pieces, push the power button on each piece, and go to it! The instructions and rules are super-straightforward- if you're playing by yourself, it's not even that necessary to read the instructions. Also included is a little slip of paper telling you what to do if your gamepieces experience technical difficulties- there's a reset button on the back of each.

I love that there's no time at all to belabor gameplay with strategy. You build 3-5-letter words as quickly as you can before your time runs out. I also love that once you get the game out of its package, it stores in a cute little portable box, and the instructions fit right inside.

The only thing that gives me pause with Scrabble Flash is that it counts words that I don't even know are words, and you move too fast to double-check.

Once I managed to get all five electronic Scrabble tiles out of the box (which, believe me, was a massive battle), I really enjoyed this game. The technology is innovative and quite impressive. The game is easy to figure out and fun to play. It's a game that I think will be especially good for families to play with younger children who are trying to improve their reading and writing skills. The only complaint I have regarding game play is that the tiles are kind of small, and the only person who has a good view of them is the person whose turn it is. So, if it's not your turn, it's kind of boring to just sit there because there's nothing much for you to watch. Similarly, a parent trying to assist a child with spelling would have to lean close over the kid's shoulder in order to help. Overall, though, this is a fun new approach to the classic game of Scrabble.

This scrabble game consists of a sleek little black box that you can slide the 5 scrabble "tiles" into for storage. The tiles are about an inch and a half square and maybe half an inch thick.

There are three different games you can play. The first is to see how many words you can make by lining up the letters that appear on the tiles in a set amount of time. I thought this game was the most fun. At the end it will give you your score and how many words could have been made.

The second game you play is one where you are given a set amount of time to form five letter words from the letters that appear, you see how many 5 letter words you can make before time runs out. Again a it gives you your score at the end.

The third game can be played with multiple people. Each person gets a finite amount of time to make a five letter word in the time given then the tiles are passes onto the next player and they are given five new letters. If you can't make a five letter word before time runs out then you are OUT. This was the least fun; although I only played with two people and it may have been more fun with more. We were having trouble making five letter words in the short amount of time given, so we were both out almost always on the first or second turn. Maybe we just have poor letter scrambling skills; but I thought the time given should have been a bit longer.

I never had any trouble with the tiles "talking" to each other. This could get a bit pricey when you have to replace all of the watch batteries that these things use. The little black box these tiles comes in is super nice and really makes the game a nice one to travel with.

Overall excellent and addictive one player games. We didn't like the multi-person game as much but it may have been fun with more than two people; we thought the time given for each person for the multi player game was too short. Great game for travel, very compact.

I am amazed that Scrabble Flash gets such positive reviews. I think the concept and design is fantastic, but the its main purpose falls completely flat. The game simply uses too may fictitious words that don't even exist in Middle Earth. I have been a conventional Scrabble lover since I was a kid, but this just doesn't cut it. I played 10 solo games and wrote down all the questionable words that the game recognized as legit. I used an official Scrabble dictionary, regular dictionary and the internet. In 10 games, I came across 44 words that flat out don't exist. How can the game be anything but a complete flop with these kind of major flaws.

My 8 yr old daughter received this Scrabble Flash Cubes for a birthday gift. If you enjoy word games such as Boggle or Upwords, Scrabble Flash Cubes will be a lot of fun for you. Yes, it is fast paced and addictive.

Would have been a great educational tool except there is no way to list the words a player found after a round, or the actual words possible in the MAX total. The game has no way for 2 or more players to play using the exact same letter cubes. Letters change at random each time so players can't compete finding possible words from the same letter cubes.

Consider this as a fun gift for older children and adults and everyone will have a great time.

WAYS IT COULD BE BETTER:
1) If it could display the words that you found after a round.
2) If you could display the missing words that you did not find after a round.
3) If the tile combinations were numbered so you could choose tile combinations that were "stumping" you again and again.

I understand that this would probably make it cost more. But I would like to see those improvements in a deluxe version.
