Don't Worry If Your Vocabulary Isn't Great; Strategy Counts!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Quiddler (Toy)
Word games can be intimidating if you don't have a great vocabulary, but don't let that scare you away from this GREAT game. Instead of kicking yourself for not having a great word, concentrate on strategy. Be the first one to put your word(s) down. Or hold off until someone else does and then see if you can steal a bonus away from them. Put on your poker face and keep the others guessing.
You earn bonus points for having the longest word or the most words. That makes simple words work for you. Just pray you don't get stuck with a fistful of consonants without vowels!
This is a favorite family game. It's fast paced and don't take a whole lot of time to play a round. There's nothing complicated about it so it's easy to bring along when you travel. A word to the wise: pick a dictionary before you start and agree that if a word's not in there, it doesn't count.
