Hasbro Scrabble Electronic Turbo Slam ~ Review & Rafflecopter Giveaway

With the kids back to school and all manner of new commitments pulling at your family, there are two tried and true ways to keep your family connected ~ family meals and family game night!

While my family's multiple after school commitments, sports, band and Destination Imagination to name just a few, tend to have us all running in separate directions during the week, my husband and I insist on family meals and at least one fun family activity each weekend.




Although our individual preferences run the gamete, with a little creativity, we can usually come up with some meals and activities that everyone will enjoy. One of our favorite family meals is home made pizza, with everyone getting in on topping preparation and selection. As sports fanatics, we each have a bit of a competitive streak, so board games are always a treat, with laughter and silliness all around.





Courtesy of Hasbro and Hunter PR, my crew was given an opportunity to test one of the latest offerings from the Hasbro game line, Scrabble Electronic Turbo Slam!




How fast can you create words? Slap down cards to change the words on the table. Then, slam fast when you hear the turbo sound from the Turbo Slam unit. If you slam first, grab an action card. What’s in store for you? The only way to tell is to play, slap and slam!

Includes electronic Turbo Slam unit with storage tray, 55 letter cards, 12 action cards and rules.
Requires 3 “AAA” batteries (not included).
For 2 to 4 players. Ages 8 and up.



My Take:
One of the things I appreciate about Scrabble Turbo Slam is the educational base in promoting spelling. With a younger reader on our "crew", Scrabble is a great game to promote both spelling skill strength, as well as vocabulary expansion. Of course, we can always count on my husband to keep the laughter rolling, as he insists, usually unsuccessfully, on trying to insert non words into the mix! The faster pace and additions of the Slam Button (a crew favorite!), sound effects and action cards really speaks to my family's personalities and makes this version of Scrabble one of our favorites. Scrabble Turbo Slam uses cards and any flat surface, as opposed to the traditional board and tiles of the original version of Scrabble, making it a game that is more travel friendly and perfect for taking on our camping trips! No more hunting around for small, wayward tiles!

We order in pizza for FGN since that way mom and dad dont have to cook and the kids dont have to do dishes and all that extra time can be devoted to playing. We love to put the ipod on and sing along while playing and of course theres always the random dancing when this happens (although sometimes the random dancing happens when someone does really good during the game too)
