The Best Toy I Ever Got (for now)


Let's put the PlayStation 3 and my computer games aside for now....


I love a couple of board games; Monopoly and Scrabble. Don't do much chess though, because I am too impatient. I rarely played other board or card games because I was simply not that interested.

So.... playing a board game all by yourself is a bit silly. (That always happen to us evil people with no friends... the minions were too stupid to even play snake-and-ladders). The board games also come with small, very easy to lost pieces, or made out of flimsy material which will deteriorate after heavy use. (Tell me if I am wrong)

So one fine penniless day last week I went to Parkson's and saw something cool at the Toys Section. Scrabble Flash (age 8 and above). I want! (the little boy inside me)

And I bought the damn thing yesterday (for myself), with a remote control sports car (for my significant other) when my account went ka-ching recently.

It was a lonely person dream come true (sad smile, still happy though). I got to play Scrabble all by myself. Scrabble Flash (a Hasbro product) consisted of 5 electronic tiles that communicate with each other, by building words and keeping score while at it. Too bad the longest words are only 5 letters long, but it amused me greatly, and there were no repetition of the same words that I was aware of.

The digital display on each tile is big and nice, and I am sometimes amazed that five letters can create sometimes 30 and over words.
We get to rearrange the red tiles to form new words. And for every new word, the tiles go beep! (ha ha ha) The game has a timer, and if I was stumped, the tiles provide the solution. Now that's what I call VERY COOL.

If I have children, I'd let them play with this. But I don't, so I tell you to get this cool toy for yours. :) 

It's about USD 30 or 24 pound (last I checked).

p.s. - oh, and you can play this with other people too (which I refused to do)

I wonder if it's possible to play Uno by yourself.

Possible. If you play it with your multiple personalities.

Bwahahahahhaha...

I don't know about this - three letter is about about my max - oh, is max a word? Well, it's a name isn't. No, that is an abreviation for a name. hmmmm.... see my trouble?

Aizan; Unfortunately I have only one personality playing a game at one time. The others would be busy planning world domination schemes.

Grayquill; Ah, I think this game would be perfect for you. You can argue with the tiles and they will totally ignore you! :)

Rock Chef; Go get one Today (yes, I may sound like a commercial here)
