Quiddler Ages: 8+Players: 1-8Contents: 118 cards and instructions for solitare and group play.Average Game Length: 35 min Quiddler is a delightful challenge for rookies and wordsmiths alike. There are two bonuses each round: one for the longest word and one for the most words! The object is to arrange all the cards in your hand into one or more words. There are 8 rounds per game. Start with 3 cards in the first round, 4 cards in the second round, on up to 10 cards in the last round. Players draw and discard until someone forms their entire hand into words using two or more cards per word. Once a player goes out, everyone else gets one last chance to draw and put down the words they have made. Quiddler is called ‘The SHORT Word Game’ because readers of all ages can play and win with short words like ‘at’, ‘is’ and ‘the’. You can even use a dictionary when it’s not your turn. Try to use your high point letters, but don’t get caught with them in your hand!Fun and Educational!Playing Quiddler is so much fun that you won’t notice you’re learning! Quiddler sharpens spelling skills and increases vocabulary and critical thinking skills. The dictionary becomes your friend in this game! You will use it when challenging a word of another player and more importantly, when it is not your turn, you will use it to look up words.

Trying to see how pieces fit and re-assessing where they might go when they don’t fit is a good exercise in checking and re-evaluating choices. Each piece can only go in to one place so there is none of the compromising and trading-off that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to constantly re-evaluate their decisions, and teaches patience with the process as it is an integral part of the game.
