Review:

Double Play is a mind bending card game about making words from a 10-card hand. Each of the 56 cards displays a letter. However, each letter card can become another simply by rotating the card 180 degrees. For example, an "a" becomes an "e," an "o" becomes a "c," a "t" becomes an "f" and so on.

While at first some of the cards can be difficult to decipher (the stylized s/v card for example), all becomes clear (and very fun) after a round or two. Double Play includes instruction cards for four different games: Finders Stealers, Solitaire Dare, The Final Word, and Word Wars I.II.III. Each variation has its own rules, ages and number of players.

As the Josh Billings quote on the card distribution insert reads: "Life consists not in holding good cards, but in playing those you hold well." Challenging, clever, appealing, and educational.
