• An aggregation of fun card games that tests the player(s)' vocabulary and spelling abilities.

• 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.

Quality of the cards themselves 5 of 5: The cards are on good quality card stock, and are coated with a nice feeling coating. They deal and shuffle quite easily. The coating is such that the cards don't slip around on the table, but do move easily against one another.

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:

1st: A
2nd: N
3rd: STOP

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.

1st: A
2nd: N to continue
3rd: T to continue
4th: E to continue

And so on.

The main concept behind these playing cards is that every card can be used as two different letters depending on which way you hold the card. For example, the "a" card looks like an "e" when it is turned upside down. Other examples are: b turns into a q, d turns into a p, h turns into a y. Some of the letters are a bit difficult to recognize at first--like the "i" that turns into a "l" or the "j" that turns into a "r." Once you get familiar with the more difficult letters it is easy to recognize them. What really surprised me is that so many of the letters in the alphabet can be turned upside down and they easily become other letters.

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 .

If you like word games then you will like this one. My husband and I played 3 of the 4 games. Each games instructions are provided on a card. This is nice because they easily fit in the box of cards. The cards are standard size playing cards of good quality. There are 50 cards. 13 different symbols. Each symbol plays the part of 2 different letters. This can be a bit of a challenge at times but definitely adds to the fun. I suggest familiarizing yourself with the symbols before you play. The pictures show some examples of the cards.
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!
