Product Description

Quiddler, the short word, game - is a breakthrough in word games. Because short words, like 'at', 'is', 'of', 'ax','ow' and 'zoo' can lead to winning, readers of all ages can play and win. There are bonuses for both short and long words. You simply combine all the cards in your hand into words. The words don't have to be related, and you don't play off other player's words. In the first round players get three cards, in the second round four cards, on up to 10 cards in the last round. Just words. Just fun.

Timing your exit is important in this deceptively simple word rummy variant from the talented makers of Set. Each player is dealt an increasing number of the whimsically designed (and numbered) cards each round, up to a maximum of 10 cards in round eight. Besides scoring points for words, players can earn bonuses for making the longest word or the most words. It's easy to go out, but don't be too hasty: Others get one last chance to do the same and may earn bonuses. In later rounds, when more cards come into play, there can be surprising fluctuations on the scoresheet. This game is guaranteed to sharpen your word skills, and may even train you to be an anagram whiz!
