In a nutshell, Scrabble Flash Cubes is a cleverly designed, electronic version of the classic Scrabble game. It lets you play solo, or against another player, or a group of friends.
It’s a great game for anyone age 8 & up; also great for the entire family to spend some fun time together.
Scrabble Flash Cubes come in small packages – just 5 tiles and a lightweight storage box. But don’t let the size fool you.
The rule of the game is pretty simple. It starts with a letter displayed on each cube. These SmartLink cubes can read each other’s letters when they touch. As you shuffle these cubes around to make a word, they light up and beep. Then you continue on to the next word. Once your time is up, these cubes display your score.
Three Ways To Play Scrabble Flash Cubes
Each time you successfully make a 5-letter word will earn you an extra 5 seconds. At the end it will give you the score and let you know how many words could have been made.
In the second option (Five Letter Flash), you try to make a word from the given 5 letters. Then five new letters will be given. You would try to spell as many word as possible in 75 seconds. Again it gives you your score at the end.
In the third option (Pass Flash) you play with multiple people. Each person gets a finite amount of time to make a five letter word. Then the tiles are passes onto the next player and they are given five new letters. A player is eliminated if he or she can’t make a five letter word before time runs out. The game continues until only one player stands.
The game can also be played with 4 tiles to make it easier for younger players.
The cubes uses five CR2032 batteries that are included and installed.
