Description

Wordsmith - Piece the word together in this fast-paced real-time brain tickling game for 1 to 4 players!

Wordsmith is all about discovering words, but instead of whole letters, you just have letter pieces in four different shapes. This brain tickling game for 1 to 4 players is a fast-paced, real-time word building frenzy!

All players create words simultaneously from their letter pieces. Each word can only be made and scored once, so a thrilling challenge of word discovery begins.

Which words will you discover in your letter pieces? Longer words earn you more points, but you also want to make all six words before the round is over.

And of course there is a twist: Although you can discard letter pieces to make a word, you get bonus points when you can limit the number of pieces you have to discard.

Simple Game Play

  1. Try to build a word from a random pool of letter pieces.
  2. Need more or fewer pieces? Roll a die to get more or pay points to get rid of them.
  3. Write your word down and build a new one. Be the first to claim your 6th word!
  4. Get points and start the next round.

The idea for this Letter Piece Game comes from Eon game designers Bill Eberle, Jack Kittredge, Greg Olotka, and Peter Olotka, whose credits include Cosmic Encounter, Dune, Hoax and more.

The game provides a single player mode as well as special rules for advanced players.

Wordsmith includes semitransparent plastic letter pieces that are playful and easy to manipulate. A special plastic insert turns the game box into a game component. You get your letter pieces from the insert as part of game play and everyone also has their own corner of the insert to roll their dice in.

Contents: 120 plastic letter pieces, 4 custom dice, 1 custom play-in-the-box insert, 4 pencils, 1 score sheet pad, 1 rulebook.
