I just got this game yesterday (May 19, 2010) and love it. One of my all time favorite board games brought to a portable gaming platform. For some strange reason it only came out last year and has been discontinued from almost all retail stores. So I was lucky enough to find myself a used copy at my local Game Stop. This is very hard to find, and when you do find it, grab it, it won't last long. The colors on the board are a little different then I remember of the orginal game, but with that being said, it still plays identical to the original game. If you tap the board twice you sill see stuff that will help in determining what each color means such as TW for Triple Word Score, or DL for Double Letter, etc. I have not played the SLAM game yet, but am looking forward to some of that this upcoming weekend. The best thing about owning this cartridge versus buying the seperate SCRABBLE CLASSIC and SCRABBLE SLAM on the DSiWare service is, the cartridge allows for up to 4 players to play off one cartridge. Nintendo did this right with a lot of cartridges including this one! I don't think multiple people in the same area should have to buy multiple versions to play together. A great savings on money, and get's an A+ from me! You can use this game for Right or Left handed play, which is another plus for me, since I am left handed. Great game, many many hours of enjoyment will be had from it. I say BUY IT!
