Product Description

Dicewords is a compact word game that comes in a smart tube, small enough to fit in your pocket. It features nine special alphabet dice, with letters on their faces, and score values depending on how usable they are in the English language (Q is worth 9, E only 1...etc).

Each player has 3 rolls in which to build one high-scoring word. Roll all the dice to begin with (that's the first roll), then keep the letters that suggest a word and re-roll the remaining dice, aiming to get the letters you need. After the third roll (or earlier) you declare your word and add the appropriate score to your running total.

A word score is derived from adding up the values of the letters in the declared word and then multiplying this by the number of letters in the word. If U is also worth 1 point, then you can work out that QUEUE will have a face value of 13. But this 'word value' is multiplied by the number of letters in the word. So QUEUE would score 13x5 = 65.

So longer words can yield significantly more points, especially if you use the more awkward letters (word scores of over 200 points are possible, although very rare). But don't worry about the maths; the tube includes ready-reckoner sheets so you can just look up the scores.

Contents: 9 alphabet dice, rules, ready-reckoner sheets
