~ What ~
This small box contains a card game that can be played with two to eight players within a twenty to thirty-minute period. With one-hundred-and-twenty cards and sixteen tokens, the game is meant for those eight years or older of all skill levels.
The primary object of the standard way to play the game is to get the most reward tokens and points per cards. As the players pick five cards at a time, they build words that can be built upon and expanded, gleaning the tokens that match the word combinations. With the cards being different colors, the point system adds up quickly.
I love words so find this game fun and engaging, especially when I can make up new words. I like that this activity involves creative thinking using letter combinations. With the clear instructions, those who are writers, authors, and editors will find this game easy when played against those who do not excel verbally.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like to play word games will refrain from playing this game as it may seem simplistic to them. The game may be tedious to some who do not like having to think about words.
~ Wish ~
Since I do love words, I wish this game were more challenging for adults as it is sophomoric in its letter combinations. With only one of some common two-letter cards such as CH, CK, ST, and TH, the game needs more blended consonants.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for an educational game that is a mix between Scrabble and Uno, this one will keep you and yours entertained, hopefully, able to invent a new word or two that makes sense.
Thanks to Blogging for Books for this product that I am under no obligation to evaluate.
One evening after dinner, we decided to give it a shot. Players work with the letter cards in their hands, but they can also use letter cards in a pool. And not only can you gain points by building words, but you can steal other player's words and earn tokens by completing certain tasks. This keeps the game going as I wasn't only looking at my cards, but all the words already laid out as well as the pool. Plus since cards are rated differently, I was trying to build the best word with what I had as well as earn a token.
The game is rated for ages 8 years and up, but provided quite a challenge for both my husband and I. We tend to look for games that we can play as a family, and although we all enjoyed it, I do think it would be better suited for a slightly older age range. Still we really loved the game and it's quickly become a favorite. I was surprised by how much fun it was. I might have to start crashing their Sunday afternoon word games.

I took this game to my daughter's for the weekend so we could try it out. I told her and her hubby it was for review, so we were excited to try it. We all gave it two thumbs up!
We actually liked it so much we played it twice. Then after I went home (I left the game with them) my daughter texted me and said they were going to play it again!
It was lots of fun. It took some thought and some planning. I always tried to plan my words out ahead but was sometimes foiled if someone used the card I wanted so I learned to have a 2nd and even 3rd option. I think we all found it to be quite challenging and we are all intelligent people! I hated playing a small word but had to if that's all I could come up with. When one of us played a long word we were all ecstatic! I think this will be on our list of games we play when I go visit.
