Bg scrabble brings yet another traditional and well loved word game into the sphere of accessible computer games, this time the popular multiplayer strategic, vocabulary based board game.
The object of the game of scrabble is for players to construct words horizontally and vertically by placing letter tiles on a board comprised of innumerable squares. This is made more difficult by the fact that any new word must use at least one letter of an existing one, ---- for instance crossing over the word sun in the other direction by placing a p and a t either side of the u to make the word put. for every letter placed, a player scores points, which can be further increased by placing letters on special squares on the board which give bonuses to score.
The hole thing makes for a complex game of spacial logic and verbosity which has been a popular classic for many years.
Bg scrabble offers all the functions of the original game, and can be played by up to four players on one computer, the game also features colourful and high contrast graphics, thus making it perfect to play for people with a variety of sight conditions. You can even play a single player game against yourself, trying to get as high a score as possible, ---- though in version 2.0, you have the ability to play against the computer as well. You can even set your difficulty.
As with all spoonbill games, Bg Scrabble is self voicing using the installed windows synth, ms sapi, so no screen reader is necessary. If you'd like a copy of the game, just send an E-mail with your name and country of residence to [email protected] and Ian humphries will mail you a copy of the game within the next few days.
