Talk And Roll

Tap your inner poet for expressive, free-styling fun. Ideal for individual or group creativity, a set of 63 word dice offer endless combinations for unexpected prose. Simply huddle around the cubes to write and roll! Just one rule: it's not a haiku unless it's a three-line pattern of five-seven-five syllables.

Use the two inspiration cubes to get the poem rolling, or muse on the fly. Break out the word stack after dinner, on family trips or anytime you're ready to wax poetic. When not in use, this wordy matrix dresses up tabletops and speaks volumes to your creativity.

How To Haikube:

Roll a cube to start!
Unleash your inner poet;
Build haiku with words.

Designed in Seattle, made in China.

            Beautiful presentation, nice box, heavy-weight ivory-colored plastic cubes. I bought one for myself, then once I saw how nice it was, I bought another as a gift for a very important person in my life.

              I bought this for my daughter, a 7th grade English teacher. It was a back order; the delivery was very prompt once the item was back in stock. My daughter has used the game in several classes and the students are very engaged. I thought the blocks were a little heavy; however, they should stand up to lots of use. The concept was embraced by the students and other teachers at my daughter's school.

                I gave this as a client gift this year - everyone loved it - some leave it in the office kitchen to play with, others split up the words and everyone has a couple words on their own desk.

                I kept one for our family and my kids and I are having so much fun with it! It takes us about 15-20 minutes to create a haiku based on the rules - but it's also fun to just play with randomly. The quality is great. I love the heavy weight of each cube, and the green box is so attractive that we leave our creations sitting out in the living room. My 11-year-old son loves doing it with me!

                  This game has so many fun aspects to it. You're required to use your creativity, of course, but you can also use your own personal quirks too.
