Messed Up Game Description – April 4th, 2020


Let’s see how you go with this classic game

It’s another week, and another messed up game descrption! Rabbit nailed last weeks game, so I thought I would try another simple change.

Only one word has been changed, and it’s trademarked. That’s enough clues 🙂

If you are of a certain age, I am sorry if the jingle gets stuck in your head!

This is the game with the lunchroom dice roller. It’s a simplified Pachisi variant in which only one die is rolled per turn.

The text should read:

In this classic word game, players use their seven drawn letter-tiles to form words on the gameboard. Each word laid out earns points based on the commonality of the letters used, with certain board spaces giving bonuses. But a word can only be played if it uses at least one already-played tile or adds to an already-played word. This leads to slightly tactical play, as potential words are rejected because they would give an opponent too much access to the better bonus spaces.

Did you get it? Good luck with today’s puzzle!
