WordFare! combines the fun of Scrabble with a good bit of strategy and random chance. Like similar word games, you don't need to be a mastermind to be good at it.
You can learn the rules in a few minutes. Here are most of the rules:
1 Draw 20 tiles at random, pick the 10 you like best and put them on your row #1 (the row facing you)
2 Roll 2 dice, select one and move a tile that many spaces in a straight line. Save the other one to use later.
3 Your opponent does the same. As your letters move together, you can form words with either player's letters.
You score based on how far away from your home row the letters are, times the length of the word. There are blank tiles and a special * tile, used to replace any letter. The * tile can only be used by the player who owns it; the blanks can be used by either player. There are a couple of other simple rules involving capture of letter tiles, but you get the idea.
The board and pieces are made of hardwood and are laser engraved. Even the box is made of hardboard and is engraved.
