Being the Scrabble geek that I am, I’m all too familiar with the frequent ‘fights’ that used to break out over Scrabble games as to which dictionary was the ‘official’ one for contesting strange, new words. Along came the hardcopy pocket-sized Scrabble dictionary, and you would think those fights would be over, but instead, we had to make sure uber-competitive players weren’t sneaking a look at other words! The dictionary now comes in a very cool electronic version that will hopefully put an end to those problems. 😉
Endorsed by the National SCRABBLE Association, this electronic dictionary can help end word disputes at the touch of a button: simply enter a word, and if it is valid, a brief defintion is provided. Better still, this is more than just an electronic dictionary, this device helps you build playable words with even the thorniest selection of tiles.
For example, from the letters “BVRDUJM” the device produced 25 words ranked in order of score. An internal database contains over 100,000 words, and the letter pattern function finds possible words based on current words already in play. Soft-touch buttons make data entry easy, and the letter keys are printed with their corresponding point value. This device also has three challenging wor d-building exercises with adjustable skill levels, automatic spell correction function, definitions, and a crossword puzzle solver. Runs on four AAA batteries.
