Macworld's Game Room has posted a review of Scrabble, the computerized version of the ever popular word building game. Much like the original board game, Scrabble allows players to compete against each other or computer opponents in creating words on the playfield from randomly drawn letter tiles. The Game Room gave Scrabble a score of 4 out of 5 mice.

From the review:

There’s also a time-based speed version—Blitz makes you race against the clock, forcing you to lay down words within a set number of seconds; Tournament mode, in which you play as long as possible within a set number of minutes; and Custom Tournament, which lets you set time and word assistance options yourself.

Scrabble has some nice features to simplify game play, like automatic pause if you click in a window in another application (it hides the tiles on the board so you can’t cheat in timed play) and an automatic save feature that saves the current game in progress if you quit for any reason. There’s also a hint feature (it doesn’t give it completely away, just shows you the approximate area you can make a word using your letters), as well as the official Merriam-Webster Scrabble Player’s Dictionary built in.
