From the award-winning, best-selling creators of Exploding Kittens and Throw Throw Burrito, A Little Wordy is a fresh and ridiculously ingenious take on the genre of tile-based word-unscrambling games.
Here’s how it works: Players are each given a pile of letters. Rearrange your letters until you formed a word. Be sneaky and pick a word that your opponent won’t easily guess.
Write it down and keep it a secret. Rescramble your tiles and then pass them to your opponent. The objective is to examine your opponent’s tiles and try to figure out their word. You will do this with Clue Cards. These will tell you things such as: what’s the first letter, how long’s the word, or what does it rhyme with? You win by using as FEW clue cards as possible to figure out what word your opponent wrote down.
It’s thoughtful, strategic, highly-replayable, and built for two players. It’s not a game about having the strongest vocabulary - it’s a game about making clever choices.
The longest, most complicated word isn’t always the right choice. Sometimes, choosing a smaller, common word is better because your brainiac opponent will overthink things and blaze right past it. Trying to guess your opponent’s secret word can be both hilarious and (delightfully) maddening. A Little Wordy levels the playing field against even veteran word wizards.
