A co-operative word game! Everyone makes words to cover as many star spaces as you can. But each word must be about what you see in the picture - and the picture changes! Letters get recycled, letters are given away. Discuss, share and compare ideas in a natural, friendly way. Yes, you can look up words in the dictionary. No, you don't have to hide behind your letters. Word wizards can play the advanced version in which dice are rolled to see what kind of word has to be formed. Antonym? Adjective? Adverb? Noun? Verb? Rhyme? Family members, students or friends who simply enjoy word games will find Starwords a very refreshing treat! Nervous beginners can play alongside experts since each makes their best contribution. Includes: 13 x 17? board, die, reference chart, 100 letter tokens,and a collection of unusual pictures.
Play as friends, not as enemies! Family Pastimes games foster the spirit of cooperation. Players help each other climb a mountain, make a community, complete a space exploration... They never play against each other. After all, the initial impulse to play a game is social; that is, we bring out a game because we want to do something together. How ironic then that in most games, we spend all our efforts trying to bankrupt someone, destroy their armies - in other words, to get rid of one another!
At Family Pastimes we believe that people of different ages and abilities should be able to play side by side, each making their best contribution. We are all there together when we finish the game to take joy in our successes and wonder how we might work together even better the next time we play. Thus, Family Pastimes games will prove to be a friendly form of fun. Socialization, entertainment, academic learning, character growth, etc. - whatever your objectives, we invite you to realize them by cooperative means. We hope you enjoy playing and learning together!
