EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

WordARound 2 from Think Fun is the follow-up to the original WordARound game. The gameplay is the same as the first edition only now ThinkFun's added 300 new words. There are 100 WordARound 2 cards each featuring three words depicted in the the red, blue, and black rings. 

How to Play

Shuffle the deck and place it at the center of the table face up. For the first round, start with the red ring. The first player to decipher the word and shout it out wins the card. Flipping that card over reveals what the ring color will be for the next round. 

How to Win

The first player to collect 10 cards wins the game. 


Is It Fun?

This is a super simple game that's really perfect for travel because of it's compact size and packaging. It's also the kind of game that, while testing your reading skills and visual perception, doesn't require a lot of game prep or previous play to jump right in. 

Who It’s For

ThinkFun's Word A Round 2 is for two or more players, ages 10 and up. It will appeal to fans of the original WordARound as well as those that enjoy word games, brain teasers, and a fun portable travel game for their next party, road trip, or game night.

What To Be Aware Of

Keep in mind the age-grade on this one and your child's comfort level when it comes to vocabulary. Most of the words are fairly easy to decipher and sound out but it all comes down to the child. If it's too frustrating, we encourage you to check out of some of ThinkFun's other word games that test your vocab and language skills such as Zingo! or Last Letter.

You don't need the original WordARound game in order to play this 2.0 version on its own but WordARound 2 can be used as an expansion pack, combined with the original game.
