"Scrabble Flash Cubes" is an electronic game based upon the original "Scrabble" board game by Hasbro. It comes with a small, portable box for traveling and has three game modes. Game one is a solitary game where the player finds as many words as possible with five tiles in 75 seconds. Game two is also a solitary game, with the exception that the player receives a new set of letters with every correct word. Game three is multi-player, where each player spells a word and passes the tiles onto the next player.

Set the tiles on a flat surface so that the sides touch, then press the "Start/Reset" button on the bottom of each tile to activate them.

Select game one, two or three by pressing the "Start/Reset" button on the first, second or third tile.

Shuffle the tiles around to make a three-, four- or five-letter word. When the tiles beep and light up, create another word or pass them onto the next player in the multi-player version.

Listen for consecutive beeps and watch for the tiles to flash a clock, which signals the end of the game.

Place the letters side-by-side to display the score.


In game mode one, players receive an extra five seconds on the clock for each correct word. Try the four-letter game mode for younger players.
