War of Words

It's time to see who's the master of one-upmanship! Open this innocent-looking tin to reveal a bundle of innocent-looking lettered tiles and the beginning of a competitive, word-forming frenzy. Players are positioned around the central pile, and the tiles are flipped over one at a time. As soon as a word of three or more letters is spotted by a player, they can claim it as their own. But keep a sharp eye out—those words can be reformed and reclaimed as new letters are revealed! A fast-paced game for wild and wordy family fun. Made in China.

            Comments about UncommonGoods One Up! - The Wicked/Smart Word Game:

            Very fun game to play as a family! The instructions are straight forward and simple enough, and the more rounds you play the more creative the players get. I would recommend that if you have more than 4 people playing that you buy two sets so you have more pieces to play with. They go pretty fast when you have a lot of people playing.

            There was some confusion on when someone could steal another player's word(s) and make new words out of them (as long as you use a letter from the middle) - and if you're making multiple words if you had to say all the words you were going to make before you made them. Also if you could only create words if it was your turn, or if you could do it off turn. But so long as you decide what your stipulations for these rules are beforehand, it is a very mind-testing fun game that the whole family can enjoy!

              Tiles are a bit rough and quality not the best. The game is a lot of fun, however.

              This game is lots of fun if you're into word games. The directions could have been a little clearer about certain can and cannots. For example, it never said if you could split up word in order to make new words, or if all the letters had to stay together. If you have the word "please" and you pick up the letter "a", can you split it to make "pea" and "sale"? Other than that it was fun and I love that it's small enough to throw in the purse.

                  Comments about UncommonGoods One Up! - The Wicked/Smart Word Game:

                  I saw this while traveling to New York City on business in a large retail store on Madison Avenue and bought it on the spot. I'm one of those old school people who think words matter, and that the larger the vocabulary you have the higher the intelligence. Justified, or justified snobbery? Anyway, I play One Up! all the time with my grown-up kids, because they're so fast and clever but I still have a bigger vocabulary, and a sharper eye. Still, but just barely. It's such cutthroat fun.

                  I also have games with colleagues all the time because it's play-anywhere quick and separates the wheat from the chaff pretty readily. Which sometimes is, and sometimes isn't a good thing. Toes have been stepped on. But overall a huge hit at the office.

                  The store I originally bought One Up! in doesn't carry it anymore, so I'm thrilled to find it here – even though I'm hoping it catches on in popularity and isn't "uncommon" for too much longer!

                  Classy, smart, terrific.
