Instructions

 

Age: 7+

Players: 2-6

 

OBJECTIVE:
Score the most cards

 

SETUP:

- Shuffle the cards and give each player 5 cards

- Place 10 cards face up to form the STOCK pile

- Place the remaining cards face down to form the DRAW pile

 

LET’S PLAY:

- Youngest player starts

- Use your cards to form a word with the top letter from the STOCK pile

- If you can form a word, you will score (get) all the cards you just used; then take a card from the DRAW pile

- If you cannot form a word, take a card from the DRAW pile

- Taking a new card ends your turn; the player to your left gets the chance to form a word now

 

RULES:

- You must use at least 3 cards to form a word (2 letter words are not allowed)

- If you have used all your cards, take 5 new cards form the DRAW pile but don’t form a new word until your next turn

- If you want to exchange cards, you may do so in a 2:1 ratio (return 2 to the bottom of the draw pile and take 1 new card) and that ends your turn

 

ROUNDS:

The round is over once a player forms a word with the letter on the last card of the STOCK pile

 

ROUND WINNER:

- The player with the most cards wins the round

- In a tie (equal amount of cards) the player who got the most A’s wins; if still tied move on to B’s; if still tied move on to C’s and so on

 

GAME WINNER:

The player who first wins 3 rounds wins the game
