Don’t Get Too Attached to Your Word…or Your Points…the Next Player Could Sabotage You!
BELOIT, Wis. (January 28, 2019) — Word games are a staple with game lovers, and PlayMonster has an all-new one with some added features that add a new dimension to word game play! The new game, Full Circle™, will be revealed during North American International Toy Fair in New York, February 16 – 19 at booth #435.
Because the end of the word is just the beginning™, simply creating a word on your turn that’s worth a lot of points will not guarantee a win! A pool of letter tiles sit in the middle of the disc game board, and players take turns using letters to create words around the outer edge. Each letter you use is worth one point and score is kept using the pegging ring.
The twist and trick of this word game is that players use the letter(s) at the end of the previous player’s word to create their own. For every one of their letters you steal, they lose one point! More advanced players can begin using strategy with the words they create, trying to make it difficult for the next player to use more than just one of their letters.
Example game play: Player one spells LETTER. Now player two could use just the R and spell something like RING (player one loses one point), or use the ER to spell a word like ERROR (player one lose two points), or use the TER to spell something like TERRIFIC (player one loses three points). If player one had the opportunity to add an S and spell LETTERS, that would have limited player two’s options since they would have most likely only been able to use the S.
Children and families enjoy the laid-back (or strategic!) and fun word-building game, and word game fans can take it to the next level with strategic moves! Full Circle is a fun game for 2 to 4 players, ages 8+, and lands on shelves in Fall 2019.
