LeCardo is an exciting game that tests players' skill in adding words together to form compounds. But that's not all: like all the best strategy games, players need to think several moves ahead in order both to maximize their scores and to frustrate their opponents.
Each player starts with a hand of seven cards, all with different words on. You play a card which is placed next to cards in play to create compound words or phrases - as read down, or left to right. The scores are the sum of the two cards - or more cards if in play. You then draw a replacement card, keeping seven in hand. The game ends when one player has played out their hand, or no player can play. All remaining cards in hand are then deducted from the scores.
