When Thinkfun asked if I would be willing to review a game of theirs, I jumped on board. They sent Word A Round which is SUCH fun game. I’ll show you more about it below!
As you can see, the packaging is really small, which is SO nice for SLPs. It kind of reminds me of the game Spot It! and the size of that container. When you open it, you can see the circular cards inside.
Below are example cards (fronts & backs). So here’s how you play! Turn over the first card to the side with the words on it. All players look at it and race to shout out the word in the black ring. If you look at the top left card, you should be able to find the word ‘strange’. The player who finds the hidden word first keeps the card. The color on the back of the card dictates which ring all players need to find the hidden word in next.
This game goes pretty quickly! Below is an example card close up. Can you find the 3 hidden words in the card below?
Isn’t it fun? This game could easily target reading, vocabulary, and attention. This game is intended for children ages 10+ and I’d agree so it’s probably best for your middle school & high school students! You can see it on Thinkfun’s website here.
