This compact version of Scrabble, the old-fashioned family favorite, will make a long train commute or cross-country plane journey pass more quickly. The 10-by-11-inch plastic board with its raised squares holds the tiles securely while you play, then folds up to become a neat, sturdy, 6-by-11-inch carrying case for the clear plastic letter racks and the cloth bag of tiles (you can use the bag for drawing letters).
The letter racks can fit into the sides of the board if necessary, though they’re not obviously meant to do so, making this less of a car or bus game than it might have been; still, it’s perfect for train, plane, or boat. Be careful not to drop the tiles, as they’re quite a bit smaller than standard Scrabble tiles–but even if you do, good old Milton Bradley will replace the ones you lose. E-N-J-O-Y (15 points)!
