My husband gave me this handheld electronic Scrabble game as a gift because he knew how much I like to play word games.

This is a nice little device that allows you to play Scrabble either by yourself (against the computer) or with two players. It operates on 3 AAA batteries, which are actually included. Scrabble Express features 4 games, 2 solo and 2 for 2 players. There are nine levels of play, including Beginner, Intermediate and Expert. One game I especially like is the 5 turn game. You and the computer get the same tiles and compete against each other to see what you can come up with and what the computer manages to come up with. After 5 turns, you see who has the highest score.

The game has little buttons that allow you to move your letters across the grid and place them where you want. You can shuffle your letters, to help you come up with words.

Scrabble Express has a built-in tile rack, scoring and timer. It also has a dictionary of 105, 000 words.

This is a nice electronic game. I like the fact that I can play against the computer if I'm in the mood for Scrabble and no one else is available to play the game with me.
