New year, new giveaway!

30 Dec
Scrabble Library Classic

I was so excited when Winning Solutions asked me to review their Library Classic version of Scrabble!

My family *loves* Scrabble. We love it so much that there is a running joke in our family that you can’t marry into the family without playing the game first. My husband jokes that he snuck in and married me without anyone knowing that he never played. We have the big deluxe version of the game, which we kept out in our living room all the time in case we wanted to play, but it wasn’t the most attractive looking big box to have in our “formal” living room.

That’s why I was thrilled when Winning Solutions asked me to review their new Library Classic version of Scrabble.

“For game fans who like nostalgia and style, Winning Solutionsʼ Library Classic Collection, made under license from Hasbro, includes special editions of MONOPOLY, SCRABBLE and CLUE board games, packaged within a luxe faux-leather “book” that makes a decorative addition to any bookshelf.”

I loved the look of the game as well as the easy, compact storage that it provides for people who want easy access to their game without having a huge box out in the middle of the living room.

You don't sacrifice quality for convenience.

Although the game is easily stored, the quality of the components is not lost.

“The SCRABBLE Library Classic game features a fabric tile pouch, wooden tile racks and score pad with vintage design. Each game board is designed for easy fold-up storage within the foil stamped
“book” package along with all other game pieces.”

Everything stores easily inside of the "book."

Everything stores easily inside of the "book."

The Library Classic version of Scrabble is recommended for ages 8 and up, and retails for $40. It’s available as of this fall at Barnes & Noble, Books-A-Million and Calendar Club and other specialty retailers.

I am excited to announce that Winning Solutions has also allowed me to give away a copy of their Scrabble Library Classic game. I will run this giveaway for two weeks, until January 15.


To enter, “like” The Whole Bag of Chips on Facebook and leave me a comment there telling me why you’d like to win the Scrabble Library Classic game. If you are already a fan, leave me a comment telling me so, and let me know why you’d like to win the game.

For a second entry, leave me a comment on the blog here, telling me what your favorite board game is!

    Hi Jen…actually, our new favorite game is not a board is called Monopoly Deal, and it is a deck of cards. Jacob learned it at camp, and we are all addicted. We have been playing it at most meals, and other times in between..It took a while for us to learn, and Jacob clobbered us all the time, till we got the strategy of it…now, though he still wins more often, he doesn’t always win. And I love it cuz I can just throw it in my purse.

    Jacob says their other favorite board game is either Monopoly, or Masterpiece..which is a game that my brother and I used to play when we were kids..I don’t think they make it anymore. I looked at the date on it when we were playing this week, and it said 1970!!!!
    It is an art game, where you bid on famous paintings, and buy and sell them to each other. You guys would probably like it, and I try to stick in some “education” about famous artists, etc (though that part usually falls on deaf ears!)

      OMG – Sue, I have Masterpiece too and although I haven’t played it recently it was one of our favorite games as kids!! I’ll have to take it out again!!!

      One of my favorite games is Sorry. Alex has so many board games but my “go to” when he asks if I want to play is Sorry!

    My favorite video game is the Mastermind one. Whenever we play that, it really brings our family closer. And it made me use my brain more, especially during summer where I don’t use it much since I’m out of school and stuff.
    Liked and commented on your fb!

    OMG! I love scrabble too! Rick won’t play with me anymore because I always kick his butt by at least double. Jeffrey and I just started playing together on my iphone because I can’t find the real game. (I think Rick hid it last time I beat him ;-)).

    Our favorite board game is hard to pick – we have so many we love to play! I think i would have to say Ticket to Ride. Although we play lots of The game of Life, and Monopoly, and of course Scrabble since we borrowed it from my mom and dad’s place.
