A clever word game where spelling isn’t everything!


This unique, fast paced, dice rolling word game asks children to think about how words are constructed rather than spell them perfectly. The game includes game cards, letter dice, one order die, a timer and instructions for play.  During each round of play, a category is chosen and players must shout out fitting words with the first, second or last letter that correspond to the letter on the dice that were rolled.  Each die has an assigned point value and players must keep track of their own points.

While playing this word game, children practice letter recognition, build vocabulary, learn about word construction and work on cognition speed.

This game is a perfect choice for any age, but not suitable for young children because of small parts. A great party game as well!

“I love this game because I can play it with my kids and they aren't struggling to spell complex or discouraging words, instead it's all about trying to think of some of the most outrageous vocabulary you can!” -Joanna M
