Is Scrabble Slam a Family Game Night hit in your household? Whether you’re big fans of the card game or haven’t had the chance to check it out yet, you can get in on all the word-building fun with Hasbro’s all-new SCRABBLE TURBO SLAM. In this game, players ages 8 and upstart with a four-letter word, such as “G-A-M-E” and race to get rid of their cards by putting down one at a time to build a new word. The first player to get rid of all their cards wins. But that’s not all! In Scrabble Turbo Slam, players must listen throughout the game for the Turbo Slam buzzer and be the first to slap the Turbo Slam button to collect a game-changing “Slam” card. Will the action on the card help you get rid of your cards faster, or hurt you by slamming you with more? It’s luck of the draw in this frantic spelling race!
Our Take: This version is definitely different than the traditional game. Instead of tiles, you have playing cards have letters printed on them. Once you chose a four-letter word, you then deal out the rest of the cards and start the timer. Each player places cards as fast as they can to make new words from the original. You do have to listen to the Turbo Slam unit, once you hear the Turbo Slam sound, you smack the unit, and the first to do so gets to pick up an action card. The action card will tell you various actions to take. The person who runs out of cards first wins!
