If you love card games where you sit in a circle and rush to find matching sets, then you’ll love this game with a word twist. Everyone takes eight cards and then picks up and discards one card at a time—with everyone racing in the same way—to try to form two words of four letters each. With everyone racing at once, who will be the first to form the words? You can use any letter cards, but if you’re looking for a deck with multiple cards in the vowels and the most-used consonants, check out the Ultimate Letter Card Deck we use.
If you have young kids, this is also a great game to practice spelling at a slower pace! Or it’s a fun way to bring a little extra fun to #homeschool right now!
