Scrabble Slam

I am a lover of games, and I have recently been introduced to a new one: Scrabble Slam.

It goes a little something like this: The dealers makes one four-letter word using the letter cards (such as love, slap, ooze, etc.) and then deals the rest of the cards among the players. When the game starts, each player tries to add a card to change the word. For example, if we started with "love," someone could add an "i" over the "o" to make "live." Then "live" could be transformed into "lice" with the addition of a "c." By the time you dig through all your cards and find something that works (there are letters on the front and back), someone has probably already changed the word. It's a rapid and challenging game.

I definitely recommend it for you word-philes out there!

Just went out last night and bought this game after seeing it on here. My husband and I love games and wanted to try it our for our date night :). It was so great except he totally creamed me, he is a word guy, so next time we play we play with more than just the two of us. :)

@ Anonymous: I'm so glad you liked it! I know what you mean about being creamed. I have a wordsmith friend who kicks my butt in Boggle every single time. It helps to have multiple people playing so we can cancel out his words!
