vintage Spill and Spell word game - a crossword game by Phillips Publishers circa 1957
includes 2 orange shaker cups with lids, 15 orange letter cubes, 15 ivory letter cubes,
and a plastic sand timer, Ages 8 to Adult - 1-10 players - 20 minute play time
originally manufactured in Newton, Massachusetts, USA

Spill and Spell is a simple crossword style word game with 15 cubes that have the most common English-language letters inscribed on them. Originally published in 1958-1959 this copy looks to be from the first edition run. On his/her turn, a player drops the cubes into the shaker and rolls them out onto the table. The player forms a word from the face-up letters on the cubes and then builds other words onto that word, crossword-style.

Condition: Three of the ivory cubes are missing. The cardboard box has light rubbing along edges, wear at corners, one corner is split/torn, and there are some tears on the insert and an overall patina from age. Note: The original instructions were missing -- since this game has been reproduced by various companies over the decades the instructions included are from the Internet and a more recent version produced by Parker Brothers.

Safety Note: This item has small parts which could be unsafe for young children and pets. Please purchase and use with caution and at your own risk.
