EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is
Krazy Words is a game for 3 to 7 players, ages 10 and up.  Games generally take approximately 45 minutes to play. Krazy Words comes with 7 Word Boards, 64 Letter Tokens, 48 Scoring Chips, 8 Number Cards, 56 Guess Cards, and 156 Task Cards! The object of Krazy Words is to create new words, assign them meaning, and sell your fellow players on its new definition. Not a trained linguist? Don't worry, this game is all about having fun! Each round, players pick 9 random letters and one Task Card. A Task Card states the basic definition of the new word you are creating. So for example: A Tropical Drink, A Snake Species, or A Character from a Science Fiction Series. There are even 9 blank Task Cards that allow you to create your own topics! Players use as little or many of their 9 letters and form a new, unique, never-before-spoken word.  When it's your turn in the round, share that new word with the other players.  The Task Card is presented among other random Task Cards, and then all players secretly guess the new word's meaning.  Players are awarded points for correct guesses, and points are tallied by using the Scoring Chips. There are 6 rounds of play, and the player with the most points at the end of the game, wins. 
Is It Fun?
It's challenging, sparks creativity, and encourages communication between players.  Chances are, you'll leave the game with some new words that you and your friends will continue to use in years to come.
Who It’s For
Players 10 and up who enjoy creating new words and competing with others. Great for parties, pubs and college dorms.
