Diamond Anniversary Deluxe Edition
The Scrabble 60th Anniversary Deluxe Edition is a definite improvement over recent Hasbro boards
despite the new color scheme. A full
review with detailed pictures is posted at our club's blog, and prior to the board's release, a
speculation about it was posted at this site.
Glass Signature Edition
Although probably too fragile for the typical tournament road warrior, the Scrabble Glass Signature Edition
is notable for being Hasbro's first round Scrabble board and thus perhaps as highly anticipated as
(though hopefully less anticlimactic than) Guns N' Roses' Chinese Democracy.
Deluxe Turntable Scrabble
The "deluxe" edition features a turntable for rotating the board and a
raised plastic grid to deter sliding tiles.
The original Scrabble
The original Scrabble board, not much improved since its first incarnation
in the 1950s.
With 200 letters, a huge playing field (21 by 21), and quadruple word and letter
premium squares, Super Scrabble is a whole new way to play. (Note: Completing
a game will take about two hours, so make sure your schedule is cleared before
Super Scrabble Deluxe Edition
By popular demand, Super Scrabble gets an upgrade. A raised grid and
turntable brings this game up to the same level as its older sibling.

Excalibur II Game Timer
A fairly inexpensive timer which is acceptable for Scrabble and the one
most often used at our club.
Saitek Competition Pro Game Clock III
Another inexpensive timer which purports to have a mode for Scrabble.
However, none of our club members have used it. If you've used this timer
and would like to share your experience or write a review, please
Saitek Competition Game Clock
Very similar to the Saitek Competition Pro III above, but bright blue. One of our club
members reports this clock fails to display seconds until the time is below twenty minutes,
but that shouldn't be a factor in most games.
