Description Edit | History

BuyWord is a game of words with a twist. You pay good hard cash to buy your letters, then form a word to sell at a profit, if you can. Your payoff depends on the quantity and the quality of the letters in your word. BuyWord mixes basic mathematics, money management, and good old-fashioned word-building in a simple, yet elegant blend that keeps every player involved in every turn until the very end. BuyWord is the second game in the Sid Sackson Signature Series.

Won Games Magazine Game of the Year award in 2005.
