Some basic points:
- Table set up is easy. Open up the board, which looks like a four lane road with a median strip and place letter tiles in the median, as marked.
- Game play is broken into two teams. A team’s turn is comprised of selecting a category card, coming up with a word in that category, and moving tiles based on letter usage within the allotted time.
- The number of times a letter appears in a word is the number of times the letter can be moved toward the playing team. A letter is considered “captured” once a team is able to move it off the street.
- The first team to get 8 letters off the street wins!
This game fosters collaboration and exercises your vocabulary as well as word recall. It’s also amusing. 🙂
