Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
A Must List pick
"The old-fashioned game gets a word-nerd twist. Each tile is illustrated with two objects that could signify many words. Your task is to string them together to create a new word or phrase. It may sound like child's play, but trust us, the game can get as adult as its players."
-Entertainment Weekly

Just got this game for Christmas and we love it. If you like words, find it interesting/amusing how many homonyms there are in the English language, & enjoy creative word-play, you will probably love it, too. We find it very fun to try to come up with creative ways of putting tiles together to create often unexpected words. Lots of room for answer variation. For example, a picture of a heart matched to a picture of a fire could be heart warming, warm-hearted, heartburn, lovelight, lighthearted, burning love etc. We've come up with some variations on the rules. If we only have two people, we play cooperatively, taking turns putting down a tile & having the other person try to guess what word we have in mind, not keeping score. Another variation we like is to put all tiles face down on the table, then choose two random ones to turn over & match up. The first person to yell out a word that can be made with the tiles gets to keep the two dominoes. (If two people yell at once, they each get one tile.) At the end, whoever has the most dominoes wins. Sometimes we allow the two symbols together to suggest a single word that doesn't necessarily use either of the two words. For example, a picture of a man paired with a moon could be astronomer or astronaut (rather than, say, man in the moon). Our only frustration is that we are playing it so much that we're going to run out of new combinations at some point. We can't wait for there to be expansion sets!
