The challenge in WordARound is to quickly figure out where the word starts and to read it aloud before your opponents. The game seems so simple, but you'll find yourself baffled as you race to spot and call out words! 100 Word-A-Round cards with 300 words. For two or more players. Ages 10 to adult.
