Letter Jam

Games & Puzzles $26.00 - Add to Cart
Reader Reward Price: $23.40

Letter Jam is a 2-6 player cooperative word game where players assist each other in composing meaningful words from letters around the table. The trick is holding the letter card so that it’s only visible to other players and not to you. At the start of the game, each player receives a set of face-down letter cards that can be arranged to form an existing word. The setup can be prepared by using a special card scanning app, or by players selecting words for each other. Each player then puts their first card in their stand facing the other players without looking at it, and the game begins. The game is played in turns. Each turn, players simultaneously search other players’ letters to see what words they can spell out (telling the others the length of the word they can make up). The player who offers the longest word can then be chosen as the clue giver. The clue giver spells out their clue by putting numbered tokens in front of the other players. Number one goes to the player whose letter comes first in the clue, number two to the second letter etc. They can always use a wild card which can be any letter, but they cannot tell others which letter it represents. Each player with a numbered token (or tokens) in front of them then tries to figure out what their letter is. If they do, they place the card face down before revealing the next letter. At the end of the game, players can then rearrange the cards to try to form an existing word. All players then reveal their cards to see if they were successful or not. The more players who have an existing word in front of them, the bigger their common success. 2-6 players. Ages 10+. Playtime: approximately 45-60 mins

You roll all 10 letter dice and the goal is to shout out a word of at least 3 letters that can be made with the dice. You cannot rearrange the dice on the table after they are rolled. When you shout a word, you take the letter dice that make that word and put them in front of you. Play continues until no more words can be made out of the remaining dice. The number of dice in front of you collected from the words you made is your point score for the round. If multiple players shout the same word at the same time, the round ends and the dice are rerolled. The first player to 50 points wins. It comes with a plastic click case, making it good for travel.
