Advantages: All the family can play, traditional classic, great fun
Good old scrabble! Toys come and toys go, various new fads appear then disappear every Christmas but one thing is for sure. When the family settle down later on during Christmas day, the chances are that two things will remain, year after year. Number one is lego and number two is of course that old family favourite, Scrabble.
It's almost a tradition in our household (and no doubt many others) that I try to beat my mother in law (who is an ex teacher) at scrabble every year and up and down the country, similar challenges will be taking place. No matter your age or ability, scrabble truly is a fun game for all the family and my eight year old daughter is now old enough to hold her own as well.
This humble little word game takes on a life of its own as you frantically find yourself trying to fit in the word "quiz" in a triple word score as you know that this will effectively win you the game. The palpable sense of disappoint you feel when someone "blocks" a high scoring word that, "I was going to put there!" is plain for all to see, as is the sense of satisfaction in that game changing 70 pointer that has taken you ages to set up!
All in all, scrabble has stood the test of time admirably and will no doubt remain as popular as ever so if by some miracle you don't have scrabble in your board game collection, get it now!
Summary: Great family board game
