SCRABBLE TURBO SLAM is a fun, fast-moving update of the classic word-building game. Designed for two to four players, this game is all about speed and fast decision making. An electronic Turbo Slam unit keeps the action moving and the excitement level high as you take action cards that will either give you a "slam dunk" or up your card count.
Card-Slapping, Word-Changing, Turbo-Charged Fun
How fast can you create words? Slap down cards to change the words on the table. Then, slam fast when you hear the turbo sound from the Turbo Slam unit. If you slam first, grab an action card. What's in store for you? The only way to tell is to play, slap, and slam.
Keep Your Opponents Guessing
Surprise game-changing action cards Slam Dunk, Hyper Slam, Mega Slam, and You Got Slammed keep the suspense and action running high, so you'll never know where the game will end up. Just stay focused on using your word cards to build words that earn you the most points while making sure you're always ready to slam fast.

The game does require quicker thinking than original Scrabble, but its novelty wears thin after a round or two. The turbo slam machine is a little annoying, but at least the music can be turned off. The unit requires 3 AAA batteries, and I have no sense yet of how long they'll last.
Overall, the game is great if you have 5 or 10 minutes to kill, but if you're looking for a more rewarding game, stick to regular Scrabble, or even Scrabble Slam -- minus the "Turbo."
P.S. The packaging is a little excessive. The cards are housed inside the turbo unit, which is about 3"x7"x2", but the box is a good 12"x12"x3". A blister pack would be a more ideal way of merchandising the game. Just sayin'.
Scrabble Turbo Slam takes the same game, but changes a couple aspects of gameplay. The most obvious is that there's something else to pay attention to with the new electronic centerpiece. It blinks (and plays music--but thankfully you can turn this feature off!), and at random times it will make a noise. The first person to slam the large button at the top of the unit after hearing this prompt is allowed to take an action card, as the unit goes into pause mode and waits for gameplay to resume.
That comes to the second big change--the inclusion of action cards. The action cards can be positive (such as giving cards to others or removing them from gameplay altogether)--or negative (getting them yourself!). What I really appreciate about the electronic unit and action cards being added to the game is that they provide possibilities for players to lose cards due to speed, rather than merely through word-creating skill. In the original game, if one person had better word-creating skills, the other player(s) might be left holding the cards . .Read more ›
The music is quite annoying, although you can turn it off, which is a plus. The intellectual value for anybody who is not a small child is really very low. I found the game to be severely under-challenging. The fun factor in constant slamming of the button and trying to be the first one to slam it gets really old really fast.
There are many other board games you can buy for the same price that will be a lot more exciting and will hold your interest a lot longer. Of course, if you are a hardcore fan of both Scrabble and games that test the basic speed of reaction, you might enjoy it.
Also, you have to remember that the Turbo Slam requires 3 AAA batteries which are not included, so make sure you have some in the house before the game arrives.
I can see that this would be a great game for parents to play with young children to help them get interested in learning new words -- I would use it as an educational tool, instead of having them feel pressured to make words at record speed.
On the other hand, the speed and noise factor, would probably appeal to lots of teens. Overall, the game is relatively inexpensive, and worth a try for families who enjoy word faster paced, action filled games.
