In this letter game, the object is to be the first to construct eight words from distinctive, lettered playing tiles. Each player picks a tile in turn, and those tiles go into a common "face-up" pool until a player can construct a word from them. Subsequently, players can try to construct a word from the pool or can also use opponents' words as material. There's a catch: you must use all
the letters from an opponent's word and in a different order. As you gain skill, you can make the game more difficult by determining a minimum acceptable word length. The wooden letter tiles are large--a full inch square--and are easy to read. --Richard Farr
