Description Edit | History

From the back of the box:

THE GAME IN A NUTSHELL

Cards with color-coded letters create crafty new ways to score.

  • Make words from cards of mixed colors
  • From cards all the same color (scores double)
  • With "straights" of three or more consecutive letters
  • With starred cards that double or triple the value of words
  • With "flushes" (five or more cards all the same color, no word necessary)
  • By "building" on words played by opponents
  • In other shrewd and wily ways
  • Get help from three wild cards that can be substituted for any letter or any color
  • Zap your opponent's big score with point-canceling "killer-card" (Joker)
  • Game ends when all cards are used. Highest total score wins.
