Scrabble Turbo Slam - Review and Giveaway

I remember, back in the day, when I would play Scrabble with my mom and grandma.  It was quality time that brought a lot of memories and some competitiveness to see who could score the most points.  There is now a new game, Scrabble Turbo Slam, from Hasbro that is a play on the classic game.

Scrabble Turbo Slam is a game of fast and furious word building.  Borrowing elements from the classic crossword game, Scrabble Turbo Slam offers fun for the whole family.  Speed is the name of the game as players race to create four-letter words and get rid of their cards as quickly as possible.

The objective of the game is to get rid off all the cards being held by using them to build on top of a four-letter word, creating a new four-letter word.  The first player to get rid of all the cards being held wins.



The game starts out with a four-letter word and the electronic Turbo Slam Unit is turned on to activate the timer.  Players begin simultaneously by slamming their letter cards on top of the base word to create new words.  For example, G-A-M-E becomes F-A-M-E.  Players yell the words they create.  During the game, players must race to be the first to hit the Turbo Slam unit when they hear the turbo sound.  The first to hit the SLAM button will get an action card.  The action cards can either help you or hurt you, depending on what it says on the card.  For instance, the Slam Dunk card means that you can pass three cards to any other player. 

Word games are my favorite and this one feeds that addiction.  Scrabble Turbo Slam was played for hours yesterday between me and the kids.  It's a game for 2 to 4 players, so we had tournaments where the winners of each round took on new opponents in the next round.  We looked like a bunch of maniacs trying to slam down our cards and yell out our words.  It was a good time and the sound effects added to the silly fun we had.  It's a game of high-speed action and word association.  The rules were very easy to follow and each individual game doesn't take forever and a day to play.  The game does require 3 AAA batteries, which are not included. 



Win It!

Hello fellow game night families. We are big board game people. Clue is our all time favorite and we have it in 3 different themes. We are also big fans of pictionary, even though we have a blooming artist in our midst that always makes the teams uneven. Of course the scrabble anniversary addition is awesome. Scrabble Turbo Slam would be a super addition. Thanks Terra for sharing.
