But finally I have!
Don't game rules always sound boring? You don't really know what it's like until you play!
But I needed to play with someone who could, you know, spell. So I challenged a couple of similarly word-happy friends to try this out with me. We played a version where each player would roll their dice and try to come up with as many words as we could, re-rolling as needed. I loved the word scramble aspect, putting letters together and trying to see if they make a word, sometimes finding they do, other times seeing just nonsense.
- There is nothing to learn. You pick a color dice, roll them and make words. You can chose games where you spell out celebrity names or words of a certain length or set timed matches, but ultimately, it's just those three instructions you need to know.
- The cubes are well-made. Maybe it's just because I've gotten used to chintzy Candy Land people and dollar store Dominoes, but I liked that these pieces were of a good, solid quality.
- The packaging is also the storage. All the cubes and the flag fit neatly inside the box the game comes in and closes securely. Even holding it upside down the box didn't fall open. That makes this a good option for vacations or parties; you won't be searching the trunk for letter cubes when it's time to play!
- If you can spell, you can play. Even kids can get in on this! (A great way to sneak in some spelling practice for them, in fact!)
