This is my first review, so let me know if there's anything else I should add:
WHO WILL LIKE THIS GAME?
-The serious NSA Scrabble player will definitely not prefer this game to Scrabble, but will likely enjoy it.
-Those who enjoy crossword puzzles.
-Those who have great vocabularies.
-Those who enjoy anagramming.
WHO WILL WIN?
NSA Scrabbler v. Joe Crossword
Joe Crossword v. Good Living Room Scrabble Player: even match
Good Living Room Scrabble Player v. Your Mom
Joe Crossword v. Your Mom
The overall production quality of the game is quite poor (with highly pixelized graphics on the game board which is a little distracting), but the tiles and racks are incredibly nice.
There is a free computer version at http://www.wildwords.us/internet.html
My friends don't like playing Scrabble with me because I'm a decent living room Scrabble player and have memorized the 2-letter words, Q-without-U, and many other word lists. However, I don't have much of an advantage in this game against anyone with a better working vocabulary than I. That makes this game incredibly fun!
