Product Description

Product Description

This Spill and Spell Game is a fast-paced game for crossword puzzle lovers or anyone who enjoys words. Spill the 22 letter dice onto the playing surface and start the 1-minute timer. Put the letter dice together horizontally, vertically or intersect them to spell as many words as you can. Re-spill your leftover letters to keep going. Score points based on the number of words you spell and how long they are.

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

I got this for my 81 year old mom who asked for it to help keep her mind sharp. She had the original Spill and Spell, but had lost some of the cubes. She likes this one better as there are more cubes and they are bigger, making them easier to see. We would like to see the game come with a lid for the cup, but other than that, it is a great product!

I tried finding this again years ago and it was gone.

Wish the points were on the cubes, like scrabble rather than instructions. You need to keep the manual at your side to determine the score after each throw.

My 83-year-old Mom and I play a round of 10 games every Saturday night; keeps both her spelling and math skills sharp (of course I don't NEED mind-sharpening yet, right?)! It's a game to be shared by everyone from 7 or 8 on up to great grandmas and grandpas.

We got the idea for scoring from the original Spill and Spell years ago, and it's much easier than having to read the manual each time you play. Just square the number of dice and add up the totals: 3-letters = 9 points; 4-letters = 16 points; 5-letters = 25 points; up to my best of 11 letters = 121 points. If you can't use up all the dice, you square the ones remaining and subtract that from your total score. And ditch the timer! Buy multiple games so everyone works at his or her fastest pace, and no one gets bored waiting 6 or 7 minutes for Grandma to finish OR gets frustrated by never being able to do anything in the time allotted. These newer games now come with 22 dice, which is a nice improvement over the old 15 cube game--lots more possibilities for longer words.

My only complaint (as others have mentioned) is that the cup has no lid, so the cubes float loose in the box; I have a circle of plastic that I rubber-band over the top of the cup to keep them in place. SOMEDAY, I'll stitch fabric covers with elastic to fit the cups (HEY! maybe I'll sell them and earn enough to purchase a couple more games!).

Many fond memories of Spill & Spell marathons night after night during summer vacations. It keeps your mind sharp. I still love the game and I will even challenge myself when no else is available.

New game, was still sealed but not all parts listed were in the box. The minute ( I assume one minute) timer was missing.

My children are 6 and 8 and enjoyed the challenge to come up with words. The younger one needed some help and we didn't use the timer for him. The older one wanted the timer for the challenge. We will play this game as a warm up for spelling work.
