Product Description

Product Description

Build bridges, acquire land and block your way to the pirates treasure, matey!

From the Manufacturer

Pirates in the mood for a high seas escapade will want to pick up Word Pirates. Each pirate takes a turn rolling letter dice and building a pathway of words. Players also use rock walls to block their enemies’ path in an effort to be the first player to build a bridge across shark infested waters and reach the pirate loot.

The rules are simple and straightforward. This game is a perfect fit for kindergartners and up, but it's also very fun for adults too. I love playing cards and board games with kids, but to be perfectly honest some are a bit mind numbing. This game requires the perfect combination of skill and luck to make it fun for the entire family!

We received Word Pirates for my daughter's 6th birthday. Before playing it with her I played it with another adult and we thought it was very fun, but could be potentially a little too challenging (read frustrating) for some emergent readers/spellers. Nonetheless, I played the next day with my daughter. I told her I would help her when/if she needed. Well, she absolutely did not want or need my help! She made a very steady path to the treasure made up entirely of three letter words all on her own and actually beat her old mom fair and square!

This is a fun, educational toy that the kids don't realize is educational. We play it with my 5 year old son, a beginning reader and my 8 year old daughter, a confident reader. It is easier for young kids than Scrabble which is one of my favorite games, but it is also challenging enough for my husband and I to keep it interesting. And despite what you would predict, the grownups rarely win. There is enough chance in the roll of the dice to make it anybody's game. If you want something fun that will also help your children's spelling and vocabulary then this would be my first pick.

Word Pirates is a fresh, new, child friendly spin on Scrabble. Instead of keeping score the person who makes their word bridges to the treasure first wins. My 7 year old became a pro at this very quickly. It's very enjoyable for the entire family. We play several games at one sitting. I would highly recommend this for and child that is struggling with reading or spelling. It has done wonders for my ADHD son.

It's basically Scrabble for kids, except that you're using the words to build a path from your corner to the center of the board. One rolls a die, and it tells you how many letters you get to work with (8 to 10 letters), or if you get a bridge piece (which you can link to words to build a path without letters), or block another player. Because you get 8 to 10 letters to work with, and there's a lot of standard letters (vowels, Rs, Ss, Ts, etc.) most kids can make words. My 6 year-old likes the game, although he gets impatient waiting when there's more than two players...or when my husband takes too long making the "perfect" word. Adults need to do quick words so that the kids aren't sitting around. But other than that, it is easier and more fun than Scrabble, and my son likes playing.

This is a great family game! We adults love scrabble and have been disappointed with the junior version of that game, but this is much more fun, easy to learn, and appropriate for early to advanced reading levels. My kids love the mix of offensive moves, defensive moves, and creativity that goes along with making words! It is easy to pick up the rules of the game, and fun to play....for the whole family!

I bought this for my kids (7 & 8) for Christmas. They are enjoying it. Then my husband & I played it and had a great time. It is fun for all word game lovers, but so much quicker than something like scrabble. Plus with the bridges & walls it really levels the playing field for the kids to play with us as a family. Best new game we've found in a long time.

My six-year old played this at a friend's house and just had to have it. I'm so glad I bought this for her. It's a great tool for practicing spelling! It's always fun when learning is disguised in the fun.

My 6 year old loves to play this game! It is quick and relatively easy (e.g. spelling 3+ letter words) with the fun and excitement of reaching the treasure first. I recommend this game.
