From the Publisher...

Quiddler, is a beautiful word game with naturally smooth gameplay that plays fast. These are essentials for a successful game that few word games have. Using special cards, Quiddler draws on one's ability to combine letters into words. Players must combine their entire hand into words trying to use the highest point value letters. Quiddler challenges you to do this 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.

Although it may appear that the person who knows the most words would consistently win, this is not the case when playing Quiddler. There is a visual perception aspect that draws on combining the cards with the highest points into the words rather than the first words a player recognizes. There is also an element of strategy. Players who win often don't go out at their first opportunity; on the other hand, sometimes they go out as soon as possible. Their actions are aimed at increasing their odds of getting either the long-word or the most-words bonus.

The game works well for both beginning readers and accomplished word game players. Youngsters can enjoy Quiddler because players can win using short words. This results from the bonus for getting the most words in any round, which, of course, is obtained using short words i.e., zoo, is, of. On the other hand, accomplished word lovers are challenged because of the bonus given for the longest word in any round, as well as the aspects noted above.

The solitaire rules included with Quiddler result in endless hours of word challenges for the single player. Although each game is quick to play (about 15-20 minutes), people have tended to play game after game.

Quiddler is my favorite word game. This is a quick card game that can be played by all levels, since bonuses are given for longest word and most words (which would mean short words). It's a great lunch time diversion at work.

Takes a little while to play but is a great game for those who love word games... much like Boggle & Scrabble or Upwords but in cardgame format. Start with three cards each with a letter on it and point value... draw & discard clockwise until a player can play all three letters in one word. Each time the cards are shuffled, add a card to your deck. Once a player has put down a word, play continues for one turn so that everyone has a chance to make some points. If you cannot, you do not record any points. You cannot go negative but you do subtract points from cards you cannot play from those you can. Great game!
