Family Word Game - SideLinks - 560 Words - Tabletop Card Game - Ideal for Home, School, Travel, Cottage, Fundraising!



  • Handmade
  • Dispatches from a small business in


  • Materials: paper, instructions, online arbitrator

This is a tabletop word association card game that connects words conceptually. There are 140 cards per box, comprising 560 words (4 per card) and 10,000+ known connections.

SideLinks is the updated version of my original Connections game, which is now sold out!

There are over a dozen ways to play this game, the most popular being the Classic mode. Connect words on edges of cards with other related words to score points. These are conceptual connections like SNOW + COLD and DOG and PET.

The fun starts when someone makes a contentious connection, one which doesn't make sense to other players. The connection must be "sold" and friendly debates ensue. Democratically resolve with thumbs up or thumbs down. A web-based "Arbitration App" also helps resolve disputed ties.

This game is really about connecting people. Watch our hilarious videos to see why.

As a tabletop board game, for home, school, camp, travel (car & plane), cottage, cabin and office team building.

We love this game very much. We are homeschoolers and it's so helpful with vocabulary building, logic and imagination. It was delivered very fast and the seller was very nice. Thank you so much 😊

I love this game. Fun and sometimes infuriating as it reveals so much about how the players heads work. As a side note, it helped a friend who survived brain surgery speak in full sentences again. So cleary the connections you make are enhancing the language portion of your brain.

My child's tutor introduced us to this game, it's is a fun game that everyone in the family will enjoy playing together and won't bore the adults. I like that a game that requires some creative thinking! I bought a couple extras to give as gifts. I also like that ideas for various ways to play the game are included.
