it's this amazing word/card game, and i loved it when i played it in the 80s, but i never had my own set, and all the other, similar idea card games just arent as good. (gin rummy with words - but you can steal other people's words and add letters and make new words).

does ANYone know where i might find this game? how to contact the inventor - or any other info... and if anyone HAS this get, *please* let me know....

thank you so much

A game that has 0 owners, 0 comments, 0 photos, and 0 ratings would probably be a *very* tough find. Perhaps it had only a local/regional distribution?

I would suggest you investigate the game "Word Thief". It sounds like a bit of a match for this game (a card game where cards have letters and suits, played in a rummy style where you make melds that are words, but can steal some of others players' words to rearrange and use as your own), only the card distribution isn't every-letter-appears-once-in-every-suit, it's got a more 'weighted' distribution making the more usable letters more frequent.
