Wordsmith is all about discovering words, but instead of whole letters, you just have letter pieces in four different shapes. This brain tickling game for 1 to 4 players is a fast-paced, real-time word building frenzy!
All players create words simultaneously from their letter pieces. Each word can only be made and scored once, so a thrilling challenge of word discovery begins. Which words will you discover in your letter pieces? Longer words earn you more points, but you also want to make all six words before the round is over. And of course there is a twist: Although you can discard letter pieces to make a word, you get bonus points when you can limit the number of pieces you have to discard.
The game provides a single player mode as well as special rules for advanced players.

Really good little game but not one you're going to play for years like Scrabble
As a family that normally enjoys card games more than word games we were a bit sceptical about getting this game. Truth is it's an enjoyable game to play and pretty easy to get the hang of, although the fact that most of the words you find are going to be limited to 3, 4 or 5 letters might make the novelty wear off pretty soon. I think it would have been better if the letter pieces were bigger allowing formation of common letters like E without using four pieces, or for more generous scoring of discarded pieces.
Excellent service though, arrived well packed and quickly along with our first choice of games.
