An exciting, fast paced spelling game. The game consists of 17 word cards and 67 letter cards, which are placed face down on the table. Players then take it in turns to build words by turning over a word card, starting the sand timer and finding the letter cards to spell out the word before the timer runs out! Try to be quick…when the time runs out, the letters have to be passed on to the next player! The winner is the player who has managed to complete the most words when the pile is used up. Aimed at 5 to 9 year-olds, children who are already reasonably confident at spelling will enjoy racing against the sand timer, whilst those who are a bit younger will soon gain more confidence. New readers will find that the game helps with letter recognition, and may enjoy just picking a word card and finding the correct letters in their own time, without the sand timer and other players.
