The words you form should be valid English words, and not foreign words or proper nouns. Now, depending on your audience, you can tailor the rules to suit your needs. The words all must be connecting as they do in Scrabble. Whomever uses up their tiles yells "draw" and *all* players must draw a tile. This is where it becomes a game of speed. However, you can continually re-arrange your tiles to make room for new tiles. There's a generous serving of tiles, but they include quite a few of the more-challenging letters to use such as J, V, Z, and Q. There's also a good number of wild card tiles which help when you don't have the letter you are looking for. (TIP: As you get a tile that represents a wild card you were using, quickly substitute the wild card with the actual letter so that you free up the wild card. If you draw a wild card and have no idea where to play it, you can always look for a word that you can pluralize and make it an 's' at the end of the word.Read more ›
My son was given Syzygy as a gift (from grandparents who love it so much it stays right by their kitchen table for frequent play!) After much prodding, I joined in for a game. Much to my surprise, I really enjoyed it! So much so, that now I want to give it as gifts to others!
The faster pace of the game does not make it more difficult. If anything, it makes it easier and more fun! Each person starts with 12 letter tiles. Using those 12 tiles, you build words crossword style in front of you. (Each person is working on their own "crossword.") Whenever someone uses all the tiles in front of them they call out "Draw," and everyone must draw 3 more tiles and encorporate those into their "crossword." Play continues until all tiles are used. The first one to use up all the tiles "wins."
The wonderful part is that you can change the configuration of your words at any time. When 3 more letters are added (when someone calls, "Draw,") it is often a relief as you have more letters to work with! Being able to make 2-letter words is a huge help, especially for those like me with poorer vocabularly. But the great thing is, it is so educational and definately a vocabulary builder! I love being able to competently play (since I can make a bunch of smaller words) while learning so many new words at the same time (by looking at what others are doing and consulting the dictionary when I get stuck, which is fine to do). I was thrilled to be able to be the one to call out "Draw," several times! Wow! Me?Read more ›
