What is Word Wars I.II.III?
Word Wars I.II.III is a new word game which is a spin off from scrabble. Much like scrabble you place tiles on the board to form words, and each letter/tile is based on a score. What makes Word Wars I.II.III interesting is that you have the ability to take a letter and turn it around to form a new letter, this is also knows as verseTILEtters. This gives you more options of words you can form and at the same time you can score even higher points in a single game.

Players: 2-5 players, ages 8 and up
Object: Form 3 words with 10 cards
1. Distribute 10 shuffled cards per player, who must use ALL the cards to form 3 words. Each card can be used as either one of two letters.

3. Designate the word with the lowest value as Word I and the word with the highest value as Word III.
Disclose the words and match them against the other players' words of the same designation (Word I vs. Word I, then Word II vs. Word II, then Word III vs. Word III).
Scoring: In each round, the player who has Word I with the highest value gets 1 token, Word II with the highest value gets 2 tokens, Word III with the highest value gets 3 tokens. In case of a tie, both players get the same token number.
