Product Description

Product Description

If you love word games...get ready for WORDPLAY - the board game. It's fast-paced, challenging, and easy to learn - and everyone plays every round! The spinner determines the letters and category for each round. For instance, the category might be "Food & Drink", and you may be looking for words that begin with a 'P' and contain an 'A' - 'Pizza' and 'Pasta' may come to mind, or maybe 'Pancakes' and 'Peaches'. What about "Places" that start with a 'B' and contain an 'N'? You may think of 'Boston' or 'Birmingham'. If you can't think of any "Places" with those letters, you can still score points - just fewer - by coming up with words outside the category, like 'Banjo', 'Bargain', etc. You get the picture. There are different ways to score points, and the more points you score the more spaces you advance on the board. Every round provides a whole new challenge, and there are countless possible combinations to wrap your mind around. WORDPLAY is addictive fun that will make your head spin! Great for game and party night! Includes game board, die, game pad and more.....

I bought this for New Game on the Block Night last week and it was a resounding success. It takes about two minutes to figure out how to play, and then you're off. Three spins of the spinner get you started and tell you all you need to know for each round: which letter your word should begin with, what other letter it should contain (and preferably end in, to score more points), and what your category is. The scoring system uses 3 points, 2 points and 1 point, depending on how you use the letters and whether your words belong to the category for the round. An example: if the category is Names, your first Letter S and the other letter H, you'd score 3 points for Sarah (S as first letter and H as last letter), and 2 points for Sheila (since the H is not used as the last letter). If you can't think of any Names (the category for the round), and write down an unrelated word like Shout instead, you get only 1 point. You can write up to three words on your pad per round, and you have one minute in all...so it gets frantic. The best tip I learned is to write down the words as they come to mind, and correct them later if there is time -- you get no points for blank spaces. Keep writing down answers -- they all add up in the end. Great word game!

This arrived in time for Christmas and my son says the whole family loves it. The kids can play by themselves and it is educational. Good gift. Maybe I'll order one for myself!

Fun game for the whole family! I purchased this for my "wordsmith" sister and brother in law. I was looking for a unique game since they have so many board games already. It was a hit. It's quite challenging, but provides some laughs as everyone blanks out when that timer starts! It's a combo of scattergories, scrabble, and .... not even sure what else! Try it! It's fun.

- Basic game play is like this:
spin the wheel and get the "first letter"
spin again - this will be the "other letter" (it can be the end of the word or anywhere in the word)
spin a 3rd time for the category.

You get points based on the word and category placement. If you just have the first letter, you get 1 point. If you have the first letter and the "other letter" in the word, you get 2 points. If you get the first letter, other letter, and the correct category, you get 3 points. You are only allowed to write 3 words down. It's challenging because you need to choose if you will go big and write all words in the category, which could cause you to run out of time -- or will you just write 3 words quickly contain the two letters?

I love this game. Took about 3 minutes to figure out have to play. For 2 to 6 players. Fun and fast paced. Spin the spinner three times to pick first letter, again for second letter and again to chose category, flip the one minute timer and begin the fun. We played with 3 people and from start to finish the game took about 20 minutes. Great game for ages 8 to 80.

My 13yo gran and I play this game every so often. It's very challanging to think of words in 3 min to fulfill the rules of the game. She takes this game to everyone's house she stays at and it's a big hit. Out of the 5 games I bought for Xmas, this seems to be the favorite.
Worth the time and energy to connect with your loved ones, we get to spend quality time when she pulls this game out. OH>>>and I found out she's quite competitive, her vocabulary has increased but when she's stuck, she uses words from her own country to get the most points. But I give her those extra points because it makes her think quickly.
