2-6 Players Suitable for ages 8+ Play time 15-30 minutes
The all-knowing Bookworm is back in a bigger box with more content and challenges players to come up with words of a specific starting letter and regarding a specific theme – and all of this as quickly as possible! A handful of initial letters and many different categories (flying, salty, furniture, … ) are all players need, to get the words flowing. Creativity and quick thinking are key, since the player who can get rid of all their hand cards first, wins the game.
Bookworm – The Card Game is a fast-paced and versatile game for word wizards and quick thinkers alike. The game comes with three appealing modes, ranging from orderly succession with the category changing whenever a player blanks, to simultaneous quiz mode where only the fastest player scores. In its new edition the game contains more cards than before for increased variety.
At the start of the game, each player is dealt six Letter cards. The aim of the game is to be the first play to get rid of all the cards. To begin the game, the first Category card is revealed and a first topic chosen.
On their turn, the players either play a Letter card from their hand and say a word that begins with the letter of the card and fits the current category, or they change the category.
In addition to the basic rules, there are three variants: Quiz Mode (only one word per category is played), Speed Mode (a player continues to play cards until their left neighbor interrupts them) and Challenge Mode (when changing the category, the player chooses two of the three choices, each Letter card has to fit both categories).
