A classy and clever Mastermind-style deduction game with words
May 31, 2012

If you are among those who enjoy logic or deduction games, and don't mind playing around with words, you'll likely find a very satisfying game in this box. There's good reason that in 2010 "What's My Word?" was deemed worthy of a reprint after first appearing almost 40 years previous, all the way back in 1972!

The game-play is highly reminiscent of classic Mastermind, except that players are trying to guess words. But the real strength about Joli Quentin Kansil's design is the scoring system he has implemented in this game. Player's guess words in turns, with the size and location of their guesses being limited by the location of letters on the score sheet that comes with the game. Points are awarded for correct letters in the right position (1000 points) or correct letters in an wrong position (250 points), and from the total score for each guess players must carefully deduce the right letters, their position, and eventually the secret word.

The clever scoring elements that have been added to the traditional Mastermind mechanic help turn this into a deductive word game that really works well. Gryphon Games have done well to release the game not just with a simple score pad, but in an attractive folder that makes for a very pleasing and classy looking package. It's a very good two player game, if you're the target market. Recommended.

Great game for word lovers.
February 11, 2012

This is a very good game. You think up a word of six letters on the first round. Your opponent has blanks in a staggered form in which to place smaller words that are guessed as do you. You each have identical sheets. As smaller words are guessed you must tell your opponent if any of those letters are in your word. There are 11 places in which you will guess words.

Drawbacks: I have been unable to find replacement score pads at either of the sites the game lists from which to order.
