When you play Choice Words, recalling popular phrases is only half the battle. With two types of game play, you’ll need to match other players’ answers – either the most or the least! In “Scratch Play,” score one point for each phrase that other players haven’t thought of. In “Match Play,” score points for correctly guessing how other players will fill in the blanks. As time runs out, the phrases get more far-flung in this hilarious contest of wits and words. Fun for the whole family! Includes 200 Match Play cards, 200 Scratch Play cards, timer, phrase pad and rules. 2 or more players.
In Scratch Play, one player will draw a card, and read a root word, like “air.” Then the timer is started and players race to write the most unique compound words and phrases containing “air.” When the time is up, players each read their list, crossing out any phrases that another player also has. So if nobody else wrote “airship,” “thin air,” or “air supply” then you would get three points for that round. In Match Play, another word is read, like “sand____.” Players all come up with one compound word or phrase that they think will be the most popular in the group, like “sandcastle.” If your answer matches other players’ answers, you (and they) receive points.
