“Create the largest lexicon of words by the end of the game to become the Rewordable champ” the back of this game board box states.
~ What ~
This small box contains a card game that can be played with two to eight players within a twenty to thirty-minute period. With one-hundred-and-twenty cards and sixteen tokens, the game is meant for those eight years or older of all skill levels.
The primary object of the standard way to play the game is to get the most reward tokens and points per cards. As the players pick five cards at a time, they build words that can be built upon and expanded, gleaning the tokens that match the word combinations. With the cards being different colors, the point system adds up quickly.
I love words so find this game fun and engaging, especially when I can make up new words. I like that this activity involves creative thinking using letter combinations. With the clear instructions, those who are writers, authors, and editors will find this game easy when played against those who do not excel verbally.
~ Why Not ~
Those who do not like to play word games will refrain from playing this game as it may seem simplistic to them. The game may be tedious to some who do not like having to think about words.
~ Wish ~
Since I do love words, I wish this game were more challenging for adults as it is sophomoric in its letter combinations. With only one of some common two-letter cards such as CH, CK, ST, and TH, the game needs more blended consonants.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for an educational game that is a mix between Scrabble and Uno, this one will keep you and yours entertained, hopefully, able to invent a new word or two that makes sense.
