Excitement
in the house when this arrived. A unique
design box, with appealing pictures of the tiles – we couldn’t wait to get it
open and give it a try. Unique, exciting and appealing. A nice solid box
that will last and help protect the game inside. As a consumer I appreciated
the thought gone into the packaging. New and different, a cross between
poker/rummy and scrabble and plays just like scrabble, it is enjoyable and we
picked up the rules with ease. It took a little longer for my children to grasp
the game but once they did they were away and enjoyed playing the game. This game is slightly addictive. Excellent quality no complaints, I was
pleasantly surprised. Very good value for money, a game that will last a long
time, and will be enjoyed. We loved
everything about this game. I am already
considering buying it for my nephew. Have already recommended this game. A fantastic, unique, fun and enjoyable game.
If you are looking for something new to play, then you won’t be disappointed
with this. Tania Hindes – Lewis 12 years

I
expected the game to be in a standard box so it was unusual to be in a tube
which I liked. The neoprene board makes an interesting change from the standard
board and makes it feel modern. I like the packaging, it was interesting
being in a tube not a box and it clearly showed the style of the game on the
box. It looked like a traditional game with a modern twist. It took a
while to read the instructions but once they were understood it quickly made
sense. It is a much easier game to understand if you have played poker before.
Luckily the scoring matrix is written on every corner of the board as it’s very
hard to remember. It’s a great idea, it does need thinking about but that’s a
good thing. It’s described a cross between playing cards and scrabble which I
think is a pretty accurate description. You can quickly get massive scores by
using the multiplier squares so one person could get way ahead of the others
which could ruin the competition a bit, but if each of you treat it as a
strategic game and use the multipliers then the competition quickly heats up. The
quality of the game is good, the board is a thick neoprene type material which
looks like it will withstand plenty of use, the plastic cards nice and thick
and the tube and card bag were all made from quality materials. The price in
comparable to other board games on the market presently. I dislike the racks that the tiles sit on.
They don’t have lips so the tiles keep sliding off if you hold them in your
hand which is very irritating. We all had to keep stopping to pick up tiles
throughout the game. I wouldn’t buy this actual version but would definitely
buy a travel version as we play most of our board games on holiday. I would recommend game this but it is
definitely an easier concept to understand if you have played poker before. An
interesting and thought provoking game that makes a nice change from our normal
game of scrabble, slightly let down by the fact the tiles keep falling off the
racks. Amanda Hayes

I
loved the look of the game as soon as I opened it. Fantastic packaging
and design nice to have a game that isn’t in a normal square box. Thought the cylinder shape was genius. The
first time you play takes a bit longer to get used to the rules but we as a
family loved it, as it was a cross between Scrabble and Yahtzee. Once we got
going and played the game more it did become easier to play. It keeps your
attention and did make the kids think a bit more, as obviously they wanted to
win. Great quality only thing the tiles kept falling off the stand. I think compared to other games of its type
it is in line with these on price. Loved
the packaging brilliant design, didn’t really dislike anything. I definitely would have bought this
game. I have downloaded the App onto my
IPHONE to play but would like to see you be able to play against a computer
rather than having to do it through Facebook or email. I definitely would
recommend as I really liked this game. Fantastic packaging, great game really
enjoyed playing it and will continue to do so. Sharon Booth – Lauren &
