You only have to concentrate on 4 or 5 words at most, that makes the game faster and friendlier than the board version; also the rules are a bit more flexible. Sit comfortable, drink wine and enjoy. Refreshing.

Given to N as gift. Excellent little game, it's a shame it's OoP and has been replaced with all these newer Scrabble-based card games.

For playing in German the card game is more fun than the board game as it is not getting jammed towards the end.

A good Scrabble variant with cards - beats regular Scrabble anyday IMO. Finished words get removed pretty quickly, so the dynamics is really totally different from the basegame, which unfortunately may be a bit AP-inducing for some.

It's the same search for words, but downtime is shorter 'cause you're only riffing off (usually) one word which limits your options. Which makes the game a pleasant tactically-based alternative if you're looking for the same feel but a touch faster.

Own: First Edition - Dutch
(no category cards, only 2x & 3x word cards)

Our first play immediately spawned a houserule which I see has been used in the second edition: only removing the words that have not been used, thus leaving any fully/partially used words. In short: Words containing scored cards remain on table for the next turn. This means there are (almost) always at least two words on the table.

We don't use the 3x word-value cards. (perhaps change them into 3x letter-value cards?)

I could print some category cards, but does this really improve the game?

Something to play with non-gamers. The card version has captured the feeling of the original game to some extend.

Egy klasszikus játék kártya változata.
Könnyebben átlátható, ezért pörgősebb, mint a táblás testvére. Strandra menet ezt is érdemes bedobni a tatyóba.

The special cards add quite a random factor, area needed to play is similar to the board game, it was slightly faster but not by much - ie I'm struggling to see why you'd have this rather than the board game. Maybe if hiking...

Scrabble, very directly ported to card game format. At least in the Finnish edition, the point distribution does not seem to be quite right, and the special cards are definitely not balanced.

Appears to take away the element of strategy from Scrabble, which makes it only worth half Scrabble's rating.

I don't like Word Games. I don't like this messed up letter games, where you need to put them into order and form a word. So naturally, I don't like Scrabble the Card Game.
