Wordsy is a tabletop game of longer words! Over the seven rounds of the game, you are trying to find the single best word on the board. Unlike other word games, you don't need all the letters in your word to be available, but you'll want to use as many as you can. So go ahead and use those really long words; they may just pay off here!

How wordsy can you be?

How To Play

Each round, players study the 8 letters (always consonants) on the board in real time. The first player to write down a word flips a 30-second timer. That player is now the fastest player, and every other player now has 30 seconds to write down their word.

Once time has run out, the fastest player scores their word by counting the point value of each of the matching letters on the board. Players are not limited to the letters on the board; they can add any letters they'd like. Letters score based on which of the 4 columns of the board they're in, and how rare they are.

After the fastest player scores, the first player clockwise scores their word, and compares it to the fastest player. If that player scored more than the fastest player, they score a small bonus.

Every other player scores their word and checks for a bonus. Once they've all done this, the fastest player scores a bonus if their score is equal to or higher than half the other player's scores.

After 7 rounds, players add the scores their best 5 words, plus their bonuses. The player with the most points wins!

Reviews

With its focus clearly on allowing its players to create words of their choosing over making them use all the letters revealed from round to round, Wordsy become incredibly approachable and enjoyable for a variety of gamers." - Man Vs. Meeple

"After several plays through the game, this is going to be one I get to the table as often as possible. It's quick, anyone can play, and the myriad letter recombinations means near-infinite replayability." - GeekDad

"So here's the final word: if you enjoy speedy games that tax your nerves as well as your creative thinking skills, Wordsy is certainly one game to check out." - Cardboard Republic

"Wordsy gives me the freedom to dream big. The outlay provided by the cards is only a starting point. It's an invitation to search my memory banks for words that fit the pattern of the letters on the board. It is definitely a step up in fun and challenge from Boggle and Scrabble and other games that limit your choices, and the addition of the timed bonuses really adds some punch to the experience." - Board Game Gumbo

"Wordsy is so smart in so many ways. The puzzle it presents is simple – open your word-hoard and release the most potent salvo you can. And yet, because of the timing element, each round has this really awesome arc of tension; you start slow and before you know it, someone decides that 'quell' is good enough and you've got 30 incredibly short seconds to decide between 'loquacious' and 'qualifications' and damn it, why did they have to start with such a short, obvious word?!?" - Gameosity

"Wordsy is game that takes the standard word game mechanics and flips them into something completely new and interesting. Not only does it shake things up, but it makes you have to think in different and unique ways, which is a blast!" - Meeple Mountain

"I really think that anyone who likes word games will like this one. It offers a new twist on old classics without feeling like it's just a new version. It does reward players with a large vocabulary, but doesn't outright punish someone for using smaller words, as long as they use a good number of the provided letters... Ninja Approved!" - GameGeek.Ninja

"Traditional word games have long used the limiting letter concept for game play. Wordsy brings a refreshing look at word games by removing those constraints. The result, which may sound like an oxymoron, is an action packed word game. Fast, fun, and challenging, Wordsy allows you to finally use all those words you can never seem to fit into daily conversation." - Gaming Trend

"Overall, it's an excellent word game. With its small footprint, easy-to-learn rules, quick playtime, and entertaining gameplay, Wordsy will earn a space in many collections, from families to discerning gamers. Highly recommended." - Eric Buscemi, The Cardboard Hoard/ WDYPTW podcast
