    Family fun, great game

    Quiddler is quick to play and lots of fun. You must make one or more words from all the cards in your hand. The first round uses 3 cards (some have more than one letter), the last round 10. Bonuses are awarded for the longest word and the most words. Kids can go for the most words bonus while adults go for the long word bonus. Our whole family played this game daily during our vacation week and didn't get tired of it. As much word fun as scrabble, but much quicker to play. And easier for kids.

    Quiddler is a must have game. Total fun, fast, not too competit

    Quiddler is a must have game. Total fun, fast, not too competitive and even those who do not really like table games are drawn into play. We really can't think of any downside of this game. Allow dictionary use “at will” which enhances the fun and learning.

    Fun for all grade levels

    I am a teacher, and I have used this game with kids in first grade through fifth grade. I have used it with ESL kids and even my own nieces and nephews. They have all enjoyed playing it and ask to play often. As a reading teacher I appreciate how it allows the kids to practice spelling and thinking skills while having fun.

    Quiddler is great fun.

    Quiddler is a fun way to keep mentally sharp. You are challenged to create words with the cards you are dealt or cards that are drawn. You start with three and work you way up to ten with as many as 8 opponents. It's been called scrabble in a card game. You can play with children or older adults. It can be addictive.Make you sure you have a good current dictionary within arm's reach,in case you are challenged!

    Quiddler

    Our family loves this game! We can make the game short or long. It's easy to pick up and play. We make it a learning experience by searching out new words. Sometimes, if someone is stuck we have them lay their cards out and help them organize words. I have personally purchased 5 copies of the game to take with me to people's houses. After we play I will leave it with them. I also love to play Quiddler solitaire!

    FANTASTIC !! ADICTIVE !!

    Don't buy this game unless you really want to play as you will find yourself playing all the time. Asking people to play with you -- no begging people to play with you. We even take this to our local resturaunt and play with the regulars!!

    Short Words & You Can Still Win!

    My family and I love this game, especially my daughter's because they can make short words and still win. We travel with Quiddler everywhere because it's such a short game and doesn't take long to play. I even gave it to my in-laws to play with their grandchildren when they visit.

    Fun for all - even the people who say they can't spell or are lousy at Scrabble!

    My husband and I played the game with another couple. It was fun and a great way to spend part of the evening. It doesn't take a great deal of concentration, so there isn't a lot of time waiting between plays. There are many ways to get points and even if you are not the one to 'go out', you can rack up the points based on the letters you have in your hand. If you use the most letters (some cards have more than one letter) in one word, or have the 'most words', you get bonus points. You start the game with 3 cards and each hand dealt you get one more card - up to 10 cards. So, if you have 9 cards and you spell a 8 letter word, you will probably get bonus points for having the longest word, or if you spell 3 words with the 8 cards (discard one), you get bonus points for having the most words. Words must use at least 2 cards and you must always discard one card. Make a great inexpensive Christmas gift! I'm buying some for gifts!

    Our new favorite game

    We got the first deck of Quiddler as a gift. We just replaced that deck and got an extra one for us, and a deck each for our kids. We all enjoy the game. If you like Scrabble you will enjoy Quiddler. Unlike Scabble you can have a short game, or play several games for an enjoyable evening.

    FANTASTIC FAMILY GAME

    I've had this game for years. It's great if you're looking for a quick game. It's extremely portable and it can be enjoyed by a wide range of players. The cards are beautifully illustrated and printed on high quality stock to ensure you can play this game for many years.

    New family favorite

    This game is now a family favorite, thanks to the assisted living home my mother-in-law lived in for a short time before her passing. When she first told me about the game, I assumed it was a little mind tickler that they used to keep the seniors minds active, it turns out it is much more than that. She introduced our family to the game during one of our family night visits, and she was happy to have my husband, and our 23 and 25 year old sons appreciate the game as much as her and I. It's family fun for ALL ages, it's challenging enough for everyone. This word game is right up there with Scrabble and Bananagrams...very fun!

    A Great Family Game

    We enjoy playing games with our grandchildren but we are also great game players ourselves. Quiddler was a hit from the start. Our 11 year old granddaughter loved the games we played with her - and it is very easy to learn how to play as well as the rules. We will take the game on vacation with us this summer to enjoy with our kids, grandkids and friends. Another good way to have fun while practicing your spelling and vocabulary skills.

    Quiddler is a warm up for your brain.

    When I played Quiddler I decided it was not dufficult but it was no walk in the park.The childrens card game that combins play with fun is perfect for any family game night.The only thing bad is this game is only worth about 5 dollars.
