Description

In?Word on the Street, players try to claim letter tiles from the game board by brainstorming words that fit the category while the opposition tries to sidetrack them.

On each turn, one team flips over a category card. Team members frantically brainstorm words that fit the category while the opposition tries to sidetrack them. The team must agree on a word and pull each letter of that word one lane closer to their side of the street, all before the time runs out. Word on the Street will have you in the fast lane to fun.

From BoardGameGeek:

In Word on the Street, players ? either individually or in teams ? try to claim letter tiles from the game board.
To set up the game, seventeen letter tiles (all the consonants in English other than j, q, x, and z) are placed in a strip down the center of the game board ? the median strip of the street, if you will, which has two 'traffic lanes' on either side of it. On a turn, one team is presented with a category such as 'types of fruit' or 'something a player is wearing', and that team has thirty seconds to come up with an answer in that category, then move the letters in that word toward their side of the game board. Any letters in the word that are not on the game board are skipped. If the answer were 'pineapple', for example, the team would move P, N, P, P and L.

If a team moves a letter off the game board, it has claimed that letter and that tile will not move for the remainder of the game. The first team to claim eight letter tiles wins!
