Our family LOVES games.
We love them so much that we play them daily. Our newest addition is called Rewordable and it takes word games to a whole, new level. If you enjoy Scrabble, you’ll definitely like this game.
The objective is to build words using cards with various word parts on them. Some cards have a single letter, some have two letters, some have three. As you look at your five-card hand, you need to construct a word using at least 2 of those cards. It seems like a simple process, but it can get very challenging when you add in the reward tokens.
Reward tokens are there for inspiration, I think. You have a three-token pile sitting in front of you, egging you on. If you can accomplish what’s written on a token, you can take that token (and more than one in a turn!). This is likely to be the most infuriating and satisfying part of the game. When you have a situation where all three tokens require you use at least 5 cards to create your word, anxiety and determination kick in. Luckily, you can steal words from your opponents by figuring out how to use your hand to build upon the words they have compiled in their “lexicon”.
Of course, how intense Rewordable gets depends upon your fellow players. My 7-year-old got as much of a kick out of the game as I did. I’m sure a 51-year-old word game veteran would love finding this new way to keep word challengers running for the dictionary. In the end, the player with the highest score wins, but Rewordable is almost like chess with how canny you have to be. I’d recommend learning to win against yourself first before taking on your community linguist.
I received this game from Blogging for Books for this review and my review is my honest perspective on this engaging product.
