I hope your friend loves it.
She did, but she didn't get it at first. She lives out of state so I mailed it to her. I don't think she saw the bag of letters at first so she just though it was a geometric pattern and liked the letter fabric because she's a writer etc. So when I called her I was like "Have you played it yet?" and she was like "what?" and I had to explain to her what it was. Then of course she went ballistic because she LOVES scrabble, and was cracking up at herself for not recognizing it. So yes, she does love it...but she needed some help figuring it out first.
