Palabra is a creative mix of words and poker, with double and triple scoring cards that multiply upon each other and multiply your score by 4, 6, 9, 12, 18--whatever.
Stuck with a "Q," an "X," or a "Z?" Don't make a word. Put them in a flush or a straight. Did your opponent just make a 300 point combination? Don't fret. Cancel it with the "joker." Or "shave" it, and steal any part of it for yourself.
That's Palabra. Words, poker... and so much more. A variety of ways to score.
- 120 Palabra cards
- 2 reference cards

This game is awesome! It was so much fun that my friends and I got the rights to make a computer version! It is now available exclusively for Windows 8 at: http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/app/palabra/c524f2e4-ed42-4e33-bfc5-e923ff20c77e
We worked with the original creator of Palabra and tried to stay true to the rules! The card game is out of print, but that shouldn't stop people from playing this fun game!
Palabra is a card game using the letters of the alphabet with points for each letter and stars on some cards to double, triple, etc. the points. You have 7 cards to lay down a word for points, then others can lay letters on your word to make new words for points.
This game is easy to learn and easy to play even if you are not sharp. It is a lot of fun. My brother and his wife have the game -- we played it nearly every weekend with our own twist to it.
I've worn out two decks of cards and would like to find more cards. The game can be played with up to four people but 2 or 3 is optimal. It's similar to [page scan/se=0050/sf=category/fi=stockall.asc/ml=20]Scrabble but moves much faster with potential for large scores because of the multiplying effect of the stars on some cards. Great game!
