4-Way Spelldown!

4-Way Spelldown!

Fall 2004 Games
Ages: 6 - 12 yrs.
Manufacturer: Cadaco
Price: $19.99
This simple, compact word game has only two loose parts (the dice!) and can be used even beyond the age of 12, as long as the players are of equal ability. Players form words by combining letters rolled on the dice with those printed on flippable keys attached to the game board. The winner is the first to use all ten consonants.

Younger kids tend to make 3 or 4-letter words; older ones can make longer words, thereby flipping more keys in fewer turns. It's the kind of game you can leave out on a table for any passerby to spend a few minutes with.
