    No deal if I can't complete it becasue of Scrabble! :(
    For 800 points in Europe it's probably the best game of all of them.

    Hasbro family game night is such a rip!!!! Even with reductions
    Tis very true and the game is rather shocking. Not many households dont have these games (Board games) so who is gonna want to play them Virtually :S

    Would have got this for the easy points, by buying the Hasbro retail game, along with three of these for 1200msp. But Scrabble is North America only, and therefore, Hasbro has frozen me out of this deal.

    EDIT: I'm not even sure how this game works, is Scrabble available in the UK, in fact, is the full 1850 attainable in the UK?

    Nice deal this week but nothing for me. I'd rather a physical copy on disc as its available.

    Scrabble is only owned by Hasbro in the US and Canada. Everywhere else in the world, it's owned by Mattel.

    I have scrabble and it's a super fun thing to play online against people if you like playing it. Everything else will be fine for me on the disc whenever I end up getting it.

    Was waiting for these to lower in price. Now I can finish these off and then move onto Game Night 3.

    I am another one of the suckers who wasted points on picking up the last of the DLC that didn't come on the retail disc.

    I knew it was DotW before so i figured it wasn't going to be happening again.

    as its a US box it allows you to get the US game host and then get Scrable thorugh the US Marketplace, which a few UK friends with US boxes have done

    None of which helps me, so I'm stuck without being able to get 100% on it, but at least with the price reduction I can get the rest done cheaper

    This stinks. I wish they would have waited until my 800 point rebate came in for this. I really want to get the last three (well everything but Jenga) but $10 is a bit steep to swallow. At that price I would rather just buy the stinkin' board game and actually own something that potentially last.
