Macworld recently posted a new review of Scrabble Plus, a new electronic edition of the popular word game. Scrabble Plus features the traditional game as well as head-to-head dual board play, arcade style gameplay, and new game themes. Macworld gave the game a score of 3 out of 5.

From the review:

Scrabble Plus has extra features that you won’t get from the “analog” version of the game. For example, you can play Battle Scrabble, a variation of the game that requires two boards and two bags of letters—when playing Scrabble digitally, you don’t need to purchase a second Scrabble set or have a friend to bring a Scrabble set.

The real test of a Scrabble game, though, is how well the basic game plays, and in Scrabble Plus it plays very well, indeed. The board looks brilliant, and is most likely an improvement over the tatty cardboard one sitting on your bookshelf. There are faux wooden tiles and a brightly coloured background. Rules can be customized so you can allow hints, dictionary use, and exclude curse words. The game engine automatically enforces the rules you’ve chosen—that’s the real appeal of any virtual Scrabble game. It lets you concentrate on playing, instead of scoring or looking up rules to make sure a word is valid.
