You don't have to be a serious wordsmith to win this game - with an almost "anything goes" list of acceptable words to "minimize arguing and maximize fun!" This game is easy to pick up and play with a simple concept and not a lot of pieces! Game includes 3 decks of approximately 100 cards each (Easy, Medium, and Hard), 4 answer pads, and 4 pencils. You will need a 60-second timer, not included. At the beginning of each round, a card is flipped from any of the 3 decks. The card contains a word snippet like "ext". Players then have 60 seconds to write as many words as they can think of that contain the snippet. "Extra," "next," "extraterrestrial," and "text" would all be examples. After the time is up, players compare lists; but you only get points for words that no one else thought of! Bonus point are also up for grabs. So grab your pen and paper, and put those thinking caps on - the first player to collect 3 snippet cards wins! 2-8 players, game time is approximately 45 minutes. ~ Megan
