Before we had kids, my husband and I played games pretty much every night. Word games were always my favorite, probably because I can actually beat my husband in them since he is a terrible speller. He prefers dice games – Monopoly, Yahtzee and so forth. Well Educational Insights has a game that combines both word-building and dice-rolling.
The radical dice-rolling, word-building race! Roll the vowel dice and combine the letters with the consonant cards in your hand—build the highest-scoring word and you win the round! 2–8 players. Grades 3+
Wordical is a game where each player receives five cards and then rolls the dice. You have to come up with a word using the vowels from the dice to try to score the biggest word. It reminds me of Scrabble but with cards and dice for a faster paced game! It is a different game that I ever would have thought of and my husband and I enjoy playing it after the kids go to bed! Wordical is a simple game and once you start playing it is definitely addicting to keep playing and making the biggest words! I love that the game stores nicely in the sturdy tin. I have no doubt this will be a great family game once my kids start spelling as it will be good practice for them too!
Here is an Educational Insights YouTube video on how the game works:
