Heading out on travels in the last few weeks I decided I needed my own travel version and found this folio edition.
On the positive side it is scrabble.
On the negative side
* Tiles are badly printed - the printing is not centered
* Tiles pop out of the board when other tiles are put in alongside them. Sometimes this means you have to put letters in at right angles to stop them popping out.
* The letters do not stay in the board well, I often find games that need to be scrapped as enough letters have fallen out of place to make the game impossible to fix.
* Scoring is pen and paper based. Fine until you run out of pen or paper.
Compare this to the UK version I played on my travels in the Spring.
* The letters stayed firmly in place - whatever we were doing - we never scrapped a game as letters fell out.
* Scoring is by slides on the sides of the board for 1/10/100 points, you don't need to remember or find a pen and paper.
Why these simple things cannot be available on the US version I do not know.
My US version is being returned and family in the UK are sending me the UK version. It is more expensive due to the exchange rate but I know I will be less frustrated with it. Check it out on Amazon.co.uk
*The interlocking aspect. *I like that the tiles lock into the board and you can put the board away halfway through the game and nothing will move around.
*The individual tile holder has a lid that closes locking the tiles in for packing away and playing later. The holder is useless for playing (see below in things I don't like) but good for putting away in the middle of a game.
What I don't like is:
*It is bigger than it needs to be. I can pack a full size board with just the tiles and tile holders in my suitcase in less cubic space than this one takes up. There Is a lot of hollow space under the board and when the whole thing is closed up it is really not that small of a set considering I wanted it for traveling. It measures 10"L X 6"W X 2.5"H.
*When tiles are in the tile holders the point value of each letter is covered by the front edge that keeps the tiles in the holder. Unless you have point values memorized for each letter or constantly refer to the chart then keeping the letters in the holder is useless. I do not like the tile holders at all, they are useless and it is hard to grab the tiles out of it.
*It would be nice if the tile holder sat at an angle facing up towards a person's eyes instead of flat.
*The color scheme is different from the traditional Scrabble; double/triple letter and double/triple word squares are different colors so I have to relearn this set (but they are in the same location as traditional set at least).
This board game solves most of those problems. First, it is very compact, so it fits easily on those smallish tables provided in most Internet coffee shops. Since it is small, it is easy to carry -- just stow it in your backpack or suitcase. Second, the game pieces lock into place, so a slight breeze or rough stretch in the tracks will not send the tiles flying or sliding around.
The only negative is that some tiles tend to pop out of the retaining squares on the board. A little cleaning up of the edges of the tiles with a pocket knife seems to solve this problem.
