This game is great for a quick play (10-20 minutes depending on your skill) that is different every time based on the letter tiles that you draw. Form your own “Scrabble” board in a race against your opponent. Every new word must connect with a previous word, so you must choose whether to go for the simple words for time or figure out longer words to give you more options later. My wife and I enjoy playing together after a meal. If you like word games, this is definitely for you!

Much more replay value than checkers or chess since you have the strategy of placing your own pieces and certain parts of the board are inaccessible. My wife and I played a 4-hour game on our first go-around, but I don’t think that’s necessarily how each game will be now that we understand the mechanics better. Depending on what version of the game you buy determines the quality of your components. We opted for the cheaper and easier-to-find version which comes with plastic pieces which you have to manually place the stickers on the first time you play. But do it once and you’re set for life, so it’s not that big of a deal. Simple gameplay, easy to learn, but fun and replayable due to the various setups and tactics you can employ. Plus it’s a great 2-player game, which can be hard to come by. We are excited to have finally got our hands on this game!

This game is a great introduction to cooperative style games in my opinion. Simple game mechanics and objectives, easy to understand rules, but still fun because it makes you think out loud with your teammates as to the best strategy to win. It’s very replayable because you set up the board random every time, and you can increase or decrease the difficulty to your liking and depending on the group of players you have. It’s a great game to travel with because it’s relatively compact and lightweight, easy to introduce new players, and has a shorter play time. We will be playing again soon!
