Grab a Quick Word is a face-paced card game where you must be quick to spot words from myriad letter fragments.
For 1-4 players, typically for ages 7 and up.

Quickly spot, unscramble and meld letter fragments into words before your opponent(s).
Accumulate the cards won to eventually get the highest score to win.

• 170 letter fragment cards
• game board.

The cards comprise single letters and 2- and 3-letter fragments (bigraphs, trigraphs).
The most common bigraphs and trigraphs in the English language are included.

• Assemble the game board
• Shuffle the letter fragment cards
• Place the cards face down in the “corral”
• Flip two cards face up into each of the four slots.

Players take turns moving any of the top four cards down to the lower level. Players start unscrambling letters intp possible words. The player who moved the card gets first crack at calling out a word within five seconds. Once called, any other player can call out a higher-valued word. The player with the top score grabs the letters, keeping them until the end of the game for scoring.
Empty space(s) are immediately filled from the top cards.

Game board is 6.5 x 4.5 inches. Cards are 1.25 x 1.5 inches. All components are assembled and boxed.

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.

I love it! It's for my wedding guestbook. The guests will sign around our picture. Mark got back to me right away when I had questions. He worked with me on the changes I had. Great experience. It's exactly what I envisioned and more. Thanks Mark! Dawn

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.
