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!
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.
