Updated on October 12, 2014

Scrabble Flash - A New Way Of Playing Scrabble

Scrabble Flash is the latest way of playing the classic word game of Scrabble. This is playing the popular word game with a more modern twist - the electronic Scrabble. It is one of the games recently released by Hasbro.


What Is Scrabble Flash?

Build words electronically

The game pack includes 5 SmartLink letter tiles, storage box, 5 "button cell" batteries. A board is not required for Scrabble Flash.

Object of the game:

- Build words in a "flash" using 5 interactive SmartLink electronic tiles. When you form a word, the tiles will flash and beep to confirm it..

- The electronic tiles will also time your turns and display your score with the maximum possible score.

- 3 different solo and competitive games

"Slide, swap and shuffle your way to a win" says Hasbro

How To Play Scrabble Flash

Play solo or with multiple players

There are 3 different ways to play the game. The first two can be played solo and the third is with multiple players.

1. Make as many 3 to 5 letter words from the 5 letters you are given. After the time is up, the tiles will tell you how many words you have made and the possible words.

2. Make a 5 letter word from the tiles given. When you have got your word the tiles will change and you try again. Each time you get a few more seconds. After the time is up, the tiles will tell you how many 5 letter words you have made.

3. Multiple players play in a similar way as the second game. Players take turns to make a word using all of the tiles. The player then passes the tiles to the next player who then tries with new tiles.

Scrabble Flash Reviews - Fun game for the whole family

"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."

"This is truly amazing, Scrabble is a great past time for many and most kids these day would simply shun it as knowing they have to work their brain to play but I think this is just what everyone wanted! Fast, Fun, Good old family nights. This isn't played like your typical version of scrabble in the fact that there are different variations of the game more like an unscramble/find the hidden word/s."

"Overall, the games are pretty fun and I think it will be educational for our little one who is just learning words. The box says ages 8 and over, but I think they would be fine for younger kids. They are educational to the extent you spell words"

Scrabble was invented by Alfred Mosher Butts. He was an out-of-work architect during the Great Depression who decided to invent a board game. He wanted to create a game which would combine vocabulary skills of crossword puzzles and anagrams with an element of chance as well. Butts studied the front page of The New York Times to see the frequency of words used and how to give a score value for each letter.

His first attempts to sell his game to established game manufacturers was a failure. He and his game-loving partner, James Brunot refined the rules and design of the game and renamed it Scrabble. The name was trademarked in 1948. In the beginning, Brunot and his friends made 12 sets in an hour in an abandoned schoolhouse. Sales was slow but steady.

In the early 1950s the President of Macy's discovered the game on vacation and ordered some for his store. Within a year everyone had to have a Scrabble set. In 1952, the Brunots realized they couldn't meet the demand for the game sets. They licensed game manufacturers, Selchow and Righter to market and distribute the games in USA and Canada.

      I've got this game. I do like it, but it bugs the hell out of me that when it tells me my score was 12 out of maximum 15, it doesn't what the three words I missed were. Why? Why? Just tell me!
