Chalk-A-Word is a fun word game for game night!

Ready to chalk up your vocabulary, spelling, and memory skills? Then meet Chalk-A-Word, your next fun word game that is oodles of F-U-N for everyone! Chalk-A-Word is an interactive game where players add letter cards to build off of words created by their opponents.

Let’s chalk up an example:

A player lays down S,T, A and R cards. The following player plays L, E and T cards spelling the word Starlet. The first player receives four points for STAR and the second player gets seven points for STARLET. Players can weave letter cards into the word previously played but cannot re-arrange the letters.

The Power Cards featured in the Word Game

A fun assortment of Power Cards included in the game helps players double down on strategy, making Chalk-A-Word a unique vocabulary game for the whole family!

Two Letter Cards count as two points, while adding a PLUS Card to your play doubles your Two Letter Cards to four points!

A Power Card lets you exchange all seven of your cards for new ones, while a Draw Card lets you draw two new cards in hopes of letters you can play.

A Trade Card lets you trade three unfavorable letters in your hand with three cards from your chosen player, while the SWIPE card enables you to select a random card from another player.

Wild Cards are the “luck of the draw” card that allows players to assign the letter of their choice to the card.
