    Scrabble Upwords or Upwords (as it was originally called) was a game created back in 1981. Over the years it has had quite a few different iterations with slight differences made to the game over the years. The copy that I played was the 2008 Scrabble edition. It appears that the only main difference between my version and the original is that my version has a 10X10 board while the original game had an 8X8 board. I am glad that I played on the 10X10 board since I thought that was a even a little too small.

  • What I really liked about Scrabble Upwords is that it fixes this problem. Unlike Nab-It, it is actually better to build your own words on the bottom row since you get two points per tile instead of one. Every tile you play is more valuable on the lowest level. Later in the game you really don’t have much of a choice though since most of the lowest level has already been taken. You then need to adjust your strategy and start altering words in order to take advantage of large stacks which can get you a lot of points.

Overall I had fun playing Scrabble Upwords. It is probably one of the better word games I have played. The game has a good balance between utilizing your vocabulary while also playing tiles strategically. The penalty at the end of the game and the reliance on luck when pulling tiles stops the game from being great though. I would still consider it to be an above average word game.
