Scrabble Board Game

Scrabble is a word based board game where two to four players earn points by forming words from the letter tiles and combining them with previous letters on the game board. The Scrabble gameboard is 15×15 in size, words can be made across and down, similar in fashion to the popular crossword. All words must be real words and found in the dictionary, there is even a Scrabble Players dictionary if you really want to go down that route.

The name of Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro in the USA and Canada and elsewhere we believe it is trademarked by Mattel. The game has been sold and translated in over 120 Countries and over 29 different language versions available. Over 150 million sets have been sold worldwide which makes it one of the classic board games and found in many households. continue reading>>

Connect 4 or Four in a row

Four in a Row, also more commonly known as Hasbro MB Games ‘Connect 4’ or Captain’s Mistress is a straightforward strategy game in which counters are dropped down vertical shoots with the objective of getting four counters in a row horizontally, vertically or diagonally.

Origins and History

It is not exactly known when the first Four in a Row game appeared. There are claims and whispers of legend that it may have been a game which was around in Captain Cooks time and was carved or made by hand and played to pass time. This could just be a myth and the only slight link or claim is when a Washington company in 1987 copyrighted a version called Captains Mistress, and on the packaging, they claim on voyages this was played, but of course, no way to prove one way or another. continue reading>>

Jenga GIANT

Jenga GIANT

Ok, so you must have played Jenga classic or the normal version before but have you tried the larger version Jenga Giant? This is more suited to outdoor events, BBQ, parties where you have a bit more space and can walk around it.

Unfortunately we don’t have the space for really huge giant versions, usually around 8x the size of the normal tiny normal version, check the version you are looking at and you will find they are typically around 4ft-5ft tall, which means it is often better suited to a flat surface on a flat wall, or a table, unless you want to be bending down more and more. Of course, this at least makes it kinda portable and not needing a huge trailer to get the blocks to your location. continue reading>>
