Quickword: Magnetic Travel Edition
Quickword is a fast and competitive word game that offers a variety of different challenges, requires a little luck, involves strategy, and locks players in verbal combat. Quickword modestly describes itself as The Ultimate Word Game. If it isn’t, it’s very close.
In a turn of Quickword, a player throws the die and moves the token around the board to select the game category to be played by all players. Quickword contains four different categories, each represented by a different color card. Blue cards are a straight race against the 90-second timer as players write down as many words as they can within the chosen subject; only unique answers score. Green cards give six topics and players score points for unique answers beginning with the letter determined by the spinner. Pink cards require players to come up with as many words as possible that start with the letter indicated by the spinner and contain the two or more letters shown on the card. Finally, gray cards give several variations and degrees of difficulty. The winner is the player who completes the scorecard first, by winning a word game of each category. For 2 or more players. Ages 10 and up.
