If I wanted to explain the concept of "excruciating fun" to a word game player, I would start with Jumbulaya.

You get 100 letter tiles, which are played onto a 9x10 matrix. Some of the letter tiles contain two-letter combinations (QU, CH, ED, ER, LY, ST, TH). Each row in the matrix is for another word. To start the game, the three center columns are seeded with tiles randomly drawn from a conveniently included drawstring bag. Each of up to 4 players then draws 5 more tiles to put on their letter rack. And the game begins.

On your turn, you make a new word by rearranging, adding to, trading letters with the letters on any single row. You (temporarily) claim that word by using one of your color-coordinated scoring cubes (matching your tile rack). Until someone else rearranges, adds to, or trades letters with your word, that particular word remains yours. The longer it is, the higher your potential score.

And so the game continues, turn-by-turn, word-by-word, until someone builds a 10-letter word, claims all 9 rows, or calls a seven-or-more letter JUMBULAYA.

A JUMBULAYA? A JUMBULAYA is a word that can be made by taking one letter from 7 or more of the words already on the board. You can skip word lines, but you can't rearrange the letters. Once all 9 rows contain words, JUMBULAYA can be called at any time during the game, whether or not it is your turn.

As for the excruciating part: in the early phases of the game, when it's your turn, you have to consider each of the 9 possible word rows - even those you've already claimed. If you can make one of your words longer, you might be able to keep it from getting claimed by someone else.

My Fiance and I love word games, scrabble, boggle, bananagrams, etc. So for our anniversary, I wanted to get him a new word game that we would both enjoy. I looked for a while and after reading the reviews decided on Jumbulaya. It's an ok game, and it is certainly challenging, but it's kind of a slow play, and it is more fun with 3 or 4 people (instead of 2). I'm not sure what would have made this game better, really... a bigger playing surface, less rigid rules, or more variety of ways to win... We don't really rush to play this game, usually just think "oh we haven't played that in a while" so we'll pick it up and try it again. We always end up tweaking the rules of play, and usually move on to something else after about 45 minutes of slow play. It's fun, don't get me wrong, it's just not the next best thing, and you have to be in a concentrating and thinking mood (and not get too caught up in the written rules). Hey, for $11, it's worth having as a variety in our game collection, and you'll probably think that too.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Timothy Weeks on October 1, 2012
Another reviewer has done a great job of describing the game play. So I'll be short. The obvious comparison is Scrabble -- the two games have a lot in common. But Words With Friends and Bananagrams also come to mind. Play, though different than Scrabble, moves at a similar pace until all the word rows fill up. Then it becomes more like a party game in it's free-for-all intensity. (It's most intense when more than 2 are playing.)

If you like the calm, strategic gameplay of Scrabble, you might find this to be a bit too raucous for you. But if you enjoy the leap-all-over each other rowdiness of Pictionary and Bananagrams, or if you enjoy word games in general, this one could be a win for you.

This game is fun, challenging and can be modified to make it easy on the brain when you're looking for a
night of unwinding over something not to brain intense.
