Word on the Street

Word on the Street by Out of the Box entered this family’s game rotation in 2012 and has kept its curb appeal.

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. 🙂

Have fun!
