Well, you don't say what you did after downloading Windows Scrabble w/playonlinux, so there's not alot we can help you with. What did you do/try to get it going?

And there are MANY other Scrabble games for Linux:
http://www.nongnu.org/eliot/en/
http://sourceforge.net/projects/scrabble/files/

...are just two that a brief Google search turned up. Pyscrabble has moved, and a search on the Linux Mint forums yields:

It's always best to run the native programs, rather than using Windows program via an emulator.
