1-Mac Update sold a version of Scrabble that was broken with Mountain Lion. This should be a free upgrade- not a purchase.
2-Installation seems to require the installation of either Mac Update's crapware or Mac Game Store's crapware- 3rd party SW with hooks into the web and payment. What could possibly go wrong?
3-This is an incomplete version of the iOS SW sold by EA for the iPad. Same artwork, yet lacking features.
4-No Full Screen. This is 2013 on the Mac- not 1998 on Windows, people.
5-This purchase would be the 3rd time I have purchased Scrabble on the Mac and none have offered an upgrade path. Why should this be different with OS 10.9 coming later this year?

Please try the download link contained in this listing. It should work fine for you (with 10.7 or later), but let us know if you continue to have issues.


This software is abandonware as PopCap has stopped selling SW games. You cannot buy it from this address.
The history of Scrabble- one of the most popular board games of all time- on the Mac is horrible. The title has been passed around, abandoned and minimally supported for years.

Never managed to get it to download, a complete waste of money.

It's really frustrating that one must install the "Mac Game Store" app for this to work.

I agree and thanxx for the heads-up about this, otherwise I doubt I would have gotten it to work!


WOW, the Mac Game Store has some serious bandwidth issues. I D/L'd the demo in seconds, but the Mac Game Store is telling me between 3 and 4 hours to download it now. Since that's my registered version from what I understand, I guess I have no choice but to wait for hours now.

BTW, I read on their forum about other users having problems in getting games they paid for downloaded.(i.e. Timing Out, SSL errors, etc)


I have filed for resolution with PayPal for this very issue. We do not need another app with web access and a tap to financial information. This is a freaking board game- give me a zip file with no 3rd party crapware or no dice.

Total experience sucks. I paid for Scrabble for my Mac 10.8 and now find it doesn't work on 10.8- didn't say that! When I try the link to buy it and use the serial number, the system says my email is not valid so I can't go any further in the system.

This version is designed and built to work perfectly in 10.8 and I have played it several times on my MBP running 10.8.3, if you are having problems installing it and you purchased it from MacUpdate Promo please email support at macupdate dot com and we will be happy to help you get it installed.
