Hi Judy Thanks for the info on Flash Cards.
Judy 13th Apr 2014
The scrabble cards are now called Flash Cards and available in specialised games shops, mabe at Kmart etc.. I still have a very regular group(6) that plays every Thursday afternoon for around an hour and a half. They love it. With some dementia able to play. 15 cards each, I trade in a card if they get 3 of the same letter, must have 6 vowels..first to 200. The rules are for you to adjust. Judy.

Hi Sabine.
I have not seen these Scrabble Cards yet myself. Can you please tell me what size they are?

Hi Marina.
I am working on various BIG games/activities for people in nursing homes and similar circumstances.
So far I have perfected a BIG Sudoku, BIG Tic.Tac.Toe (noughts and crosses), and Connect Four.
I am now looking at BIG Scrabble, and wonder what you, (or others), think of the idea of playing scrabble with letters about 50 to 60 mm (approx 2"), in size. - The board would be about 1200mm square, (approx 4ft).
It requires players to stand and move around the table to place the letters, and of course there can be plenty of room for bystanders to look at what is going on. - An ideal game where there could be 2 teams of 2 people playing against each other.
I will be pleased to receive any feedback as to whether anyone agrees that these BIG games/puzzles have a place in your environment.

Good idea Judy. I am not sure where Scrabble cards can be bought. I will look online and let everybody know if I find them.

Good games also to do with Scrabble is 'Scrabble ' cards. I hope you can still buy them. Give up to 5 or 6 players or teams 15 cards each and get them to make as many words as possible, hopefully they can use all the cads. 10 points bonus if anyone gets them all out plus count value of cards, 5 if they can make a word 6 letters or longer. First to reach 150 wins the game. They love to play this for an hour.
