Quiddler is a wonderful play on words. Using special cards, Quiddler makes you combine letters into words. Players must combine their entire hand into words trying to use the highest point value letters. First with three cards (round one), then with four, on up to ten cards in the last round. A bonus is given for both, the longest word, and the most words made by a player in each round. The average game takes 20-40 minutes. Great for beginning readers AND accomplished word game players. Solitaire rules are included. Most games last 20 minutes, but most people play over and over. Ages 6+.
