I have played scrabble at another site and really like it. Was truly disappointed with this. Like other reviews have been looking forward to a BFG version. You have to drag letters, cant use keyboard. You have to press play to find out if word is legitimate. Found it a little clunky. The dict is ok, however I am used to pressing 1-3 letters and several words show to choose from.

Scrabble that is awful
THis is the worst game of scrabble I have every played, I started the game with four "A"s and a dictionary that would not accept any of my words that would put me in the lead'
would not accept word "June" or "Jeans" the dictionary is awful and some of the words the computer used I have never heard of, and I have been playing scrabble for over 30 years
Then I had 5 vowals a J which I could not use and an N
I am a well educated person, and will noyt be buying this game from this site

Oh dear! I think it should have been made clear that this Hasbro version of Scrabble is intended for North Americans and not for those of us in the rest of the world as it does not use the same dictionary, board colours and rules as the company that has the game rights outside North America.
I tried to like the trial program as I had hoped to use the program to practise Scrabble but unfortunately this proved impossible. The differences in the list of permitted 2-letter words was the main problem as high scores often rely on making 2-letter words in the opposite direction to the main word being played and it did not seem possible to change the list.
I liked being able to shuffle the letters on your tray, the simple way you choose the letter to use for the blank and the inclusion of a list of words and the scores for each turn. I didn't care for the background music but you can, of course, mute it.

Please purchase and read a dictionary
This version needs a serious update. There are lots of spelling errors in whatever version of the English language the player is using and I am not talking about the doubling up of consonants or not, or the use of u. This is just plain bad spelling. Aside from that, it does not recognize very standard words, although appears to have no problem with some pronouns. For a computer generated opponent it is very, very poor.
