What It Is
Scrabble Catch Phrase is the classic electronic game of Catch Phrase with a Scrabble-themed design. Break into two teams with at least two players per team. There are four different categories to choose from: entertainment, everyday life, fun and games, and variety. Press "Go" on the category you select and a word will pop up on the screen. Players must then try to get their teammates to guess the word without rhyming or giving away part of that word. Once your team guesses the answer, pass it on to the next team. The longer it takes to guess the answer, the ticking timer will get faster until a buzzer sounds. That team will lose the round and the other team will get a point. The first team to seven points wins the game.
Why It’s Fun
Scrabble Catch Phrase will serve up a lot of fun on any family game night or as a party game. Players will love the nerve-wracking, fast-paced nature of the game as they hurry to answer before the buzzer goes off.
Who It’s For
Scrabble Catch Phrase is for ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Hasbro has relaunched many of its word games under the Scrabble brand. This game is virtually identical to the previous Electronic Catchphrase.
