What It Is
Twizmo! Words is a fun, competitive word game that requires two or more players. The game comes with a Twizmo Word Cube (which has the same feel as a Rubik's Cube), a deck of letter cards, 12 Game Changer cards, and instructions. Each turn starts with a twist of the cube and the flip of a letter card. The player whose turn it is tries to win the letter card by shouting out a word with at least four letters using the letter on the card along with any or all of the letters on the top face of the cube. However, if any opponent can shout out a word with seven letters or more before that player, the opponent wins that round, and takes the letter card. The player with the most letter cards at the end of the game wins. The Game Changer cards are dealt evenly to all players at the start of each game, and these provide players with the ability to win additional cards, steal cards, or block other players from stealing theirs. Three of the cards are Wild cards, which allow players to add a letter of their choice to any word.
Is It Fun?
If you like word games, this is a fun one. It has elements from other word games you may have played before, but there's original gameplay included as well. Letters on the cube can be used in any order, they don't have to be touching, and you can repeat letters as many times as you need to. We really like the looser restrictions on forming words, though it did take some getting used to since most other word games don't allow this.
Great for both older kids and adults, this game can get highly competitive. There's no time limit to your turn, but the threat of another player shouting out a seven-or-more-letter word definitely puts the pressure on.
Who It’s For
Twizmo! Words is for ages 8 and up.
