What's The Word?

Learn out loud with these rapid-fire games of educational questions posed through idioms, facts and vocabulary. Go it alone or grab pals for a lesson in fun. Every deck packs 150 questions with vocabulary bolded on one side, and definitions on the back. Choose from five different stacks:

Bring history lessons to life with World Geography cards packed with brain-teasing multiple-choice questions, like: "This European country was the first country to host the modern international Olympic Games in 1896. Is it: a) United States b) Greece or c) Egypt?"

Written for kids up to 11 years old, Junior Edition introduces and reinforces 5th/6th grade vocabulary with thought-provoking questions like:“Who is the most HONORABLE person you know?", or "How would you solve a DISPUTE with a friend?" Other questions about school, friends, family, and more all are designed to get kids talking, laughing, and learning new vocabulary.

Round up nostalgia while sprucing up vocabulary with American Heroes cards that feature follow-up questions to famous quotes by American legends, using new vocab. "Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine," said Elvis Presley. Your turn: "Tell about an aspiration that you have that has a V8 engine."

SAT Vocab gives teens a break from heavy textbooks and encourages them to have fun with new words. They're sure to remember definitions come test day with questions that apply to their lives: "Name something that is germane to your generation that was not germane to your parents' generation."

Draw from the Funny Sayings deck, and you'll play to idiom-fueled questions like, "Name a celebrity you think lives high off the hog" or "If you lived in the Old West, how do you think you might settle a score with someone?"

Get young kids talking, laughing and learning with a lively box of Small Fry conversation starters. Each fun and challenging question, such as ”What do you like about RAIN?” or ”What makes you SMILE?” , includes a colorful photo illustrating the key word and a fascinating fact such as, ”Did you know Rain falls at a speed of 17 miles per hour?”

Each card in the Sports Idiom deck is sure to evoke a winning discussion. Conversational prompts ask questions using the language of athletics: "Who in your house calls the shots?" or "What crazy have you done that put you in a bit of a sticky wicket?" The reverse side gives the origin of each phrase, along with a surprising fact or trivia question about the sport it comes from.

              We bought our first box of Word Teasers (Origins edition) as a family Christmas gift. We loved the game so much that we bought two more versions of the game. Great educational after dinner fun for the whole family.

                      I purchased this product because the vocabulary list for my niece's fifth grade class is far from challenging. I hope that these words will challenge her while helping to prepare her for the SAT. I appreciate that the word is used in a sentence on one side of the card so that you will gain a better understanding than simply having to memorize definitions (like typical flash cards).

                        I purchased the SAT & the idiom versions of this game. We pass the box around at dinner with each person reading a word or phrase while the other guess the meanings. I was really surprised how much my young teens love it. It has now become part of setting the table to have one of the game cubes at the table also. It has also made for some interesting dinner conversations :-)

                        We use these as lunchbox notes. We have enjoyed other versions of the word teasers, but found the geography edition to be very simple, and the answers too formulaic to be of value or interest. Our 4th grader can answer most questions without difficulty, but found the answers on the back of the card to be very poor- for example, on the card asking where the highest waterfall in the world is, the answers are multiple choice, which continent. The text then goes on to describe the continent, saying nothing about the waterfall, what country it's in, etc. We found this to be the case with most questions- the questions were OK, but the paragraph to explain them usually missed the mark and gave general answers only tangentially related to the question itself.
