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.
I was just amazed by this game. I'm an adult with dyslexia and have little confidence in my spelling. I learned to hate scrabble as a child because of the frustration of knowing a great word and not be able to spell it. I'm also not fond of the dictionary as it not easy to look up a word you can't spell.
Then came Quiddler. I just got the game and my family and I ended up playing many games of Quiddler. I enjoyed the game even though I was playing against my Mom who has a rich vocabulary and my brother who is great speller. Didn't win but held my ground. Even better my confidence with working with words was raised. (I came up with Quran on my own) and I made friends with the dictionary. It was very useful to use check on my spelling.
We played a non competitive game in which we help each other out. The advantage of the game is you can play it as hardball as you want. The best plus of the game is that is can help raise the confidence of someone who is not comfortable with spelling. I began to see the spelling patterns and thinking about what to do next time.
The game is also design so that a player doesn't fall too far behind. You can't score below zero. Players also get a last turn when someone goes out. Often if a player had no points they pick up a card and things would fall into place and they were able to score.
I got this game to use in my library program. I'm going have to buy another set for the library as I'm keeping this one myself. Though I will bring it to the library for game day.
My family and I love this game, especially when we organize game evenings - EVERYBODY loves QUIDDLER and asks for it to play. One can make short words and still win. It is very entertaining and educates at the same time. Our children have learned how to use a dictionary and they challenge each other to get the Bonusses. We never travel without Quiddler and it does not take long to play a round. It is the ideal gift for friends and word game lovers.
My family and I love this game, especially as we often organize game evenings - EVERYBODY loves QUIDDLER and asks for it to play. One can make short words and still win; or make the most words or the longest word and receive bonus points. It is extremely entertaining and educates at the same time. We never travel without our Quiddler and it also is the perfect gift for many occasions.
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!
