Word Has It! - University Games

If you and your family like word games, you'll love, Word Has It! University Games has created a great  – and sometimes frustrating way to test your vocabulary – "It's a race a at great speed ... the tallest word is what you need!"

Word Has It! is for children aged seven and above and adults. The younger the child is, the better to play in teams. The game is for two to four players or teams.

The game base needs batteries for the timer (or you can use your own timer) and is placed on a table with the 43 letter tiles places around it so they are visible to all the players. The pack of category cards is placed face down and each player or team is dealt one "X-tra Time" card and one "Any Letter" card.

Play begins with a category card being turned over to reveal a category and the start letter dial is spun. So you may get "Name a place..." and the letter is "J". The player or team who has the longest – therefore tallest – word  completed within the 40 seconds wins the card and the idea is to collect as many as possible (or an agreed number).

It's great fun – and sometimes frustrating if you can't think of a word. This is when you use your Any Letter card although you still have to follow the category.

This is a game where you have to be a quick thinker and know your spellings! Perfect family fun and educational.
