Guess who’s back?
Nope. It’s not The Real Slim Shady.
It’s ThinkFun! *cue applause*
And they’ve shared a new game with me, friends. I can’t wait to tell you all about it. If you, uh…play your cards right, you could win one for yourself.
Did you see what I did there? A clever little funny?
It’s simply a deck of cards, friends. And yet…it’s so much more than a deck of cards.
Two or more can play. To get started…shuffle the cards…
…and stack them, covering the card on top with your hand. On the word “Go,” reveal the card and focus on the letters in the outer black circle. Try to read the word that is spelled out within that circle. It’s trickier than it would seem.
The Small One keeps the card and turns it face down. The color revealed on the back of that card is the color of the circle on which players are to focus on the next card. The game continues with players calling out words as they see them, keeping the cards, and flipping them over to reaveal new color cues.
We broke word-reading ties via Rock-Paper-Scissors.
We had a fantastic time playing WordAround. Twin B, The Small One and I all agreed that this could very well be our favorite ThinkFun game yet. Vocabulary building? Sequencing? Sight word growth? Laughs? Fierce competition?
High-speed car chases? Unrequited love? WordARound‘s got it all. I even have a few tips on how to modify this game in order to bridge the gap between older and younger players. Inbox me, homies.
But I digress.
So…would you like to win your very own WordARound?
I thought so.
