Hi. I wondered if anyone knows of anywhere where I can buy the 1988 version of Spears Travel scrabble? It's the one with a green zip case and board with perforations.
I would be incredible grateful if anyone can help.
Thank you

Oof. That's a tall order. You could check the 'marketplace' section of the relevant game here on BGG, or eBay. A lot of geeks here find older editions like that in thrift stores.

Welcome to BGG.

Here's the link to the page regarding that particular version of Scrabble: Scrabble
(At least, it sounds like the right version from your description. If not, search for "Scrabble" in the search box up top, but there'll be loads of different editions to check through.)

Amongst the stuff on that page you'll see links to people trading it (currently 11, although none in the UK) and selling it (alas, none are currently listed for sale on the internal BGG marketplace). There's also a section for current eBay listings, but these aren't meant to be comprehensive so checking on eBay yourself is probably better.

Finally... since there have been so many versions of Scrabble you'd need to check to make sure that any copy you bought or acquired in trade was the actual version you're after, since Travel Scrabble itself seems to have had quite a few incarnations.

As Tommy says, such a simple sounding request might prove to be a tall order!
