• You'll first notice that each card has a letter, but the letters can represent another letter by turning it around...which is great for people who are into typography porn.
• The card set has 4 different games.
• The first game is Solitaire Dare (1 player)...a variation of Solitaire, in where you create 5 columns of 10 cards each, with the bottom cards reveal. You then have to make at least two letter words with the exposed cards until you have no cards left.
• The second game is Finders Stealers (3 to 6 players)...where the object of the game is to find the longest word. Each round consists of the deal giving each player two cards, and when instructed everyone shows their cards, from all of the cards, a player will compete against the other players to find the longest word...note: this game is best played with 4 or more players.
• The third game Word Wars I.II.III (2 to 5 players)...where the object of the game is to gain points...you are given 10 cards, from those 10 cards, you are to form three words. Of those words, you designate a ranking to each of the words, from lowest to highest as Word I, Word II, and Word III...and then those compete with other players' corresponding ranked words.
• The last game is The Final Word (2 players)...this is my favorite game, cause it's a game I love to play with my youngest son...the object of the game is to form the last word...you draw out 12 cards to the other player, to which he or she must form a word with at least two letters...then gives the remaining cards to the other player to do the same...the round ends when the last of the 12 cards are gone or no other words can be formed.
• This game involves cognitive ability, creativity, and a familiar grasp of vocabulary.
Playability: The games included in the set are eminently playable and easy to explain.
SOLITAIRE: I had a lot of fun playing by myself with their version of "solitaire". Much like a solitaire game, you play by yourself. Instead of making matches with the cards, or going in order, you make words. I have a decent lexicon, but my Scrabble skills are terrible to non-existent. This was a game I was able to play by myself to sort of hone my skills with games like Scrabble and Boggle, without the pressure of having other players, or a specific time limit to make me nervous.
FINAL WORD: This was really cool to see, because it's a lot like a game that my family and I would play together on long road trips when my sister and I were too young to engage in actual conversation. When you're driving from Miami to New York, you've got a lot of hours to kill. The first person would start with a letter. The next would add a letter to that first letter. IF the letter that they added could ostensibly form a word, but they had another longer word in mind, they'd say "___ to continue". For example. Suppose game play goes as follows:
Because the word AN could form a word, the person coming after the N can stop the word at that point, and person 2 would be out for the next round. However, it can also go like this.
2nd: N to continue
3rd: T to continue
4th: E to continue
And so on.Read more ›
The cards come with directions for four different games. The first game I played was "Solitaire Dare" in which you create 5 columns of 10 cards and then try to make words out of the top card in each pile. When I read the directions my initial thought was how am I going to make words when just given five letters. However, since each card can be one of two letters I actually had 10 different letters to work with and the game was both fun and challenging. I actually used up all of the cards and won.
The other games are fun as well. If you like word games you probably will enjoy this.
I do want to point out that our favorite word game is Quiddler .
The game we liked most was the "final word" game. The one we didn't play, "finders stealers", is for 3 to 6 players. I looks forward to playing it on our next game night. It sounds like fun. I see this as a great game to travel with. I recommend this game. Enjoy!
