TOS Review~~Scruble Cube

Do you like Scrabble?  How about the Rubik's Cube?  What do you get when they both collide?


If you can spell you can play Scruble Cube!  This cube has 96 letter pegs on the cube.  This game can be used for fun or academic...but don't tell your children when they play it they are learning. 

It is suggested to be played with ages 8+, but it can be used with younger children.  The Scruble Cube can be purchased through their website or at Barnes and Nobles which retails at $24.95.

There are different ways to play.  The instruction sheet gives you 2 options with instructions.  Player one makes a word consisting of 3 or more letters.  Each letter on the cube has a point value, you then add up the points.   You do not need to build upon the word player one completed.  You can do so for extra points. 

You can choose to use the included timer or just let the player take their turn.

We enjoyed this cube!  It is a perfect size to fit inside of a bag for a great game on the go.  We took it to the doctor's office with us.  You know how long your wait can be there.  We did not keep time or score, but the kids with their spelling lists in hand sat for a long time playing this.

My son even broke it out when he had friends over.  I loved hearing from them "this game is cool!"  I often hear kids say they can not stand spelling.  This cube makes learning spelling fun.  They have no idea they are still learning by playing this game.

We enjoyed this game, as did my children's friends.  This will defiantly have a place on our game shelf.  You can see what my other crew mates have to say about this as well HERE.

Great! Any time we can match educational and fun together that's a winner. Even better when they say "this is cool!". Nice review.
