HOW TO PLAY

Object of the Game: Make new words by stacking, stretching and mixing-up letters to score points. First to score 100 points wins!

Set-Up:

1. Split the cards into blue (Action cards) and yellow (Letter cards).

2. Lay out a set of 4-letter words according to the number of players in the game (2-3 players = 3 words / 4-5 players = 4 words / 6 players = 5 words)

3. Separate the Letter cards into two decks: vowels and consonants. Shuffle both. Deal 2 vowels and 4 consonants to each player, then shuffle the Letter cards back together and place face down to create a Letter card draw pile. Shuffle the Action cards and deal 3 cards to each player. Place face down to create an Action card draw pile. Keep your hands secret! The player to the dealer’s left goes first.
