Dicey Words

Please select a style
Oi! You can't buy your own item.

  • Handmade
  • Materials: wood, dice, lasercutter

A simple lasercut word game where you roll dice to make words.

• 50 lasercut A-Z letter tiles
• 60 lasercut coins
• lasercut wooden game board with grid (8.5 x 8.5 inches)
• two dice.

Setup: Shuffle the letter tiles and randomly place 25 tiles onto the game board. Place the remaining tiles face up in a draw pile. Stack the coins into piles.

Game Play: Each player rolls the dice to determine a grid location. (Most die rolls will yield two locations, except when both numbers are identical.) The player must then perform one action at the selected location, trying to form a two- to six-letter word someplace on the grid in any direction:
• move the tile to another location
• move another tile from the grid to that location
• move a tile from the draw pile to that location.

Make a Word: When a tile is moved, a word may be formed:
• left to right
• top to bottom
• diagonally left to right and top to bottom.

Grab a Coin: When you’ve made a 2- to 6-letter word, take a coin matching the word length. If you have run out of coins of that length, take a lower valued coin.

Ending the Game: Play until no more coins are available. The winner has the most points.

I thought this would be great (fairly easy) for my 93 year old, bedridden mom and tried it upon arrival, after a few hours I had to look up a hint to get started so these are serious puzzles for serious puzzlers(IMHO). I should've ordered the magnetic variety to avoid pieces getting lost in the bedding when they get knocked off the bed tray table. The way the puzzles are made appeals to the senses, they feel good and they sound good- no plastics clicking together kind of thing and look good. I'm ordering the symbols one next.

I bought two puzzles for mother's day, one for each of my sister-in-laws. They loved them. Both gave rave reviews. First they really liked the personalized composition. Second the hex meandering was fun and different. Third and best of all, the hex confused my brothers. Fun gift. -Had some trouble with shipping, but COVID is the culprit interfering with most of the issues and delay. -Owner Mark was great and very responsive to questions and assistance. I'd work with him again and love the product. Order early in this environment.

These were a gift for a pair of scrabble-fanatics. The concept is brilliant and they love incorporating these into their games here and there. Mark was so great at answering my questions and double checking my order before it shipped.
