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.
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.”
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.
