This game consists of 12 cubes (dice with letters on all 6 sides), a timer, and simple rules. You roll the cubes and make up to 5 3-, 4-, 5- etc. letter words as you can until your hourglass timer runs out. You can adapt it so that younger and older players can compete by restricting the number of cubes for older players. Fun, educational, and addictive. If you love scrabble, you'll really love this game.

I'm a teacher, I played this game when I was a child and loved it! Now I use it in my classroom for reading groups and to make learning fun for low readers as well as advanced readers! It helps students make words, use word association, and many more helpful skills. The best part of all, the kids love it and beg to play!!

Perquacky is a great game. We have introduced so many friends to the game and it's always an instant hit. It looks easy. It looks fascinating. You can't wait for your turn to test your abilities. Certainly you can build 5 three, four and five letter words before your time is up. Of course you can get at least a few 6 or 7 letter words. But once the sand starts running through the hour glass, the tension sets in. All eyes are on you. Will you choke? This game is loads of fun for anyone who can put a word together. You can learn to play in a few minutes, but it will keep you going for hours. As a bonus, it's compact and easy to carry most anywhere.

The game is great fun. However, this particular product I found problematic in that the black dice quickly lost their letter markings. I have several times had to trace over the letters - not a satisfactory solution.

If you like word games, this one is great. We've played it so much over the years and have gotten so good that we've shortened the amount of time you get and raised the number of points you need to use the red tiles! And we're not kids.

I played Perquackey as a kid with my parents and loved the game. I purchased this game online for my wife and I and, initially, we had a lot of fun with the game. However, we played the game perhaps a dozen times and the letters were worn the the point of being almost illegible.

I do not recommend purchasing Perquackey from this manufacturer.

I highly recommend the game and suggest that anyone interested in the game pay the extra for one of the used original games offered on Amazon. Either that, or hit a few antique stores and look for the game used.

My wife and I found a used game in outstanding condition, circa 1956, for a little more than we paid for the brand new one from Amazon. The quality of the used game is far superior the new iteration.

Seriously, unless you plan on playing the game only 3 or 4 times, save your money. If you are going to play Perquackey regularly, buy a used version.

I have just bought this product for a friend having had my own game for years. In my opinion it's much more fun than other word games like Scrabble or Boggle because you're playing against the timer and there is a skill in getting bonuses. You can play a complete match in under half an hour but it's very addictive. I recommend this game very highly.

One minor quibble is that I think the new packaging is ridiculous. The extraordinary-shaped tin is far too large for the contents and doesn't close very well. The previous boxed version was much more sensible.

Unfortunately this game is not available in the UK so I got this on a recent trip to the States, where I first bought my own game. Next time I think I'll get half a dozen as gifts.

We have only had this game less than a month and my wife and her sister love it. Her sister has a very old copy of this game and the dice on that one are still in good shape even though they are many years old.

UNFORTUNATELY, THE DICE ARE UNIQUE TO THIS GAME AND THEIR QUALITY OF THIS SET IS VERY POOR WITH THE LETTERS RUBBING OFF OF THEM. THEY ARE ALREADY UNREADABLE. WE HAVE HAD TO USE A MARKER TO WRITE ON THE DICE IN ORDER TO PLAY THE GAME. DID NOT LAST ONE MONTH!

VERY POOR QUALITY AND WORKMANSHIP! I wish I had seen other comments talking about this issue before our purchase.

I would have rated the fun and educational value both 5's had the dice not been so cheap.
