The previous reviewer summed up the game well. However, it's important to note that the game is played by all players SIMULTANEOUSLY - which does get the pace picked up quite a bit. You have to be pretty quick in "slamming" a card down to create your new word while the other players are all trying to do the same thing. Thus the four-letter word is ever-changing. I saw the commercial for this game on TV and being from a family that loves games about to head out on a family vacation, went to Target where I saw it for about $5. We played it with four adults, three adults and two adults and during each of those scenarios, had a blast. It was fun trying to stump each other with rare four-letter words. My mom has recommended it to several of her friends who have grandchildren. It's a great game for kids learning to spell and to challenge their word skills. Warning: After several rounds of this game, you'll find yourself on the lookout for four-letter words all the time!

I very rarely play card games outside of Rummy and the occasional game of Poker. However, one Sunday morning I noticed a coupon in the USA Today insert which advertised a buy one get one free offer for Hasbro/Parker Brother's new card games. I picked up "Monopoly Deal" and this game, "Scrabble Slam".

As card games go this one is pretty simple. A four letter word is laid out on the table (CHUM, LUMP, GATE, etc) and the remaining cards are dealt out to each player. Not all letters are present in the "deck" of 55 cards. There are no Q's and no X's, although there are couple of Z's and several Blanks (which can assume the form of whatever letter you want them to take, just like the Scrabble board game). Each card has two letters on it, one on the front and one on the back, and this allows the player a lot of flexibility to change words that are on the board.

Each player then takes it in turn to lay down a single card anywhere on the 4 letter word. For instance, player 1 may spell GRIM and player two lays down a P to make it GRIP. Player 1 may respond with a T making it TRIP. As the game progresses it can become somewhat challenging to make words out and needless to say that you'll want to get rid of the harder letters as soon as possible (Z, J, K, etc.) because if that's all you have left at the end of the game you're going to be in a world of hurt. The person with the fewest cards at the end of the game wins. If one wants to up the difficulty a bit simply up the number of letters in the word. Just making it 5 letters long had a noticeable effect and made it much more challenging.

I rate this game at 3 1/2 stars. It's not really a great game but I've certainly played worse. It passes the time, which is what it was designed to do, and does so well enough.

I have no idea why the Amazon price is so out of line with reality on this product. I bought this game at Target for less than $5.00.

It is fun to play and stimulates your brain somewhat, but not to the extent of the original Scrabble game. You can modify the rules and play it with younger players (we play it with our four year old).

Amazon also lists a bunch of choking hazard warnings with this product. Unless your kid can swallow a playing card there is no choking hazard that I can find.

It is worth $5.00 but not $16.00.

I originally bought a few of these to give as gifts. I quickly realized they would be PERFECT to use while teaching my son to spell. They are a convenient size, nice and clear letters, and they work wonderfully for our spelling lessons. Besides using the cards to spell the words I give him, he can also use them to come up with words on his own.

We even came up with a way to use the Scrabble point values, to make it even more fun (and a sneaky way to practice his math). When he comes up with words on his own that he spells correctly, he adds up the points and gives me a total. I write the total on our Score sheet, and when he gets to certain point levels, he earns little prizes (a sticker, a Hershey kiss, etc.)

We have a lot of fun while doing this, AND it sure does make study time go faster (for both of us!). Along the way, he's learning spelling, math, and that a little creativity can make learning fun!

I'm not sure why this game has received so many good reviews. It doesn't really fit into any niche. Serious Scrabble players will hate this game. And for people who instead want a quick and very fun game, there are so, so many better options.

Instead, I would recommend games such as No Thanks!, Coloretto, For Sale, Slide 5, Bohnanza, Lost Cities, etc. All of these games are available online here at Amazon, but you won't see them in your local Wal-Mart.

Give some real games a try.

We picked up "Quiddler" at Toys'b'Us a couple of years ago, and _still_ really enjoy playing it. I had been on the lookout for other games like it, so when I saw "Scrabble Slam!!!!!" just before xmas, I picked it up as a "stocking stuffer". Sadly, although the three of us (30-to-40-somethings) enjoy Scrabble, and love Quiddler, this one was a bust. It's a little too easy to come up with valid words with only 4 letters, and we all kept changing words so fast that it became more of a contest to see who could slap their card down first. Having the letters printed on the back of the cards is also kind of annoying, because all the other players can see what you're holding. It _might_ be fun for people who aren't as quick to think of words, or for kids who are still learning words. For three adults with IQ's well above average, it really didn't offer much. If you're looking at this and you really like Scrabble, I'd recommend you try Quiddler first. Despite having the same name, "Scrabble Slam" is less like Scrabble than Quiddler is.

P.S. - "Tag Suggestions" for this included "Julie Andrews" and "domestic violence." WTH?!?
