Now you can enjoy the most beautiful Scrabble travel edition ever, perfectly sized for playing on the go! This Deluxe Travel edition features a handsome wood folding case, which opens to reveal America's favorite word game. The built-in gameboard incorporates a raised grid to hold the letter tiles in place. Upon lifting up the gameboard panels, you will discover all of the premium game components neatly stored in two generous storage compartments. Contents: Wood folding case, built-in Scrabble gameboard with raised grid, 100 solid wood Scrabble tiles, 4 solid wood tile racks, tile pouch, scorepad, pencil, instructions.
In this classic word game, players use their seven drawn letter-tiles to form words on the gameboard. Each word laid out earns points based on the commonality of the letters used, with certain board spaces giving bonuses. But a word can only be played if it uses at least one already-played tile or adds to an already-played word. This leads to slightly tactical play, as potential words are rejected because they would give an opponent too much access to the better bonus spaces.
Skip-a-cross was licensed by Selchow & Righter and manufactured by Cadaco. Both games have identical rules but Skip-a-cross has tiles and racks made of cardboard instead of wood. The game was also published because not enough Scrabble games were manufactured to meet the demand.
