Letter Cube Word Game

By Kerfuddle

Add to Wishlist


No two rounds of this fast-paced word game are the same. Roll to see what letters you’ll have to use in whatever words you can conjure up. The twist is that the number cube and “shake it up” cards make each round different—telling you the minimum word length and adding fun caveats like “no words ending in the letter 's' this round” or “use your opposite writing hand.” Plus, its cup-contained design is portable, so any location is fair game.

  • Materials: Plastic, paper, polyester
  • Includes: 14 letter cubes, 12 "shake it up" cards, number cube, 3-minute sand timer, game mat, instructions, and carrying container
  • Compete to see how many words you can find on the letter cubes before time runs out
  • Number cube and "shake it up" cards make every round different
  • Fun for young spellers, yet challenging for serious word game pros

This compact game comes in a small jar making it easy to travel with. We've played dozens of games. There are not many games for only two and this one is great for a couple. Have also played with my grandchildren. It's a thhinking game and the action is always changing based on what the card at each draw dictates. Well worth the money and loads of challenging fun.More > < Less

I bought this as a gift for my sister, who shares my love of word games. We enjoy the added features that make each round interesting and challenging.

I got this for my 5/6 graders to as a fun way to practice spelling, but tested it out first with my son who is also a teacher. We had a great time competing; some of the 'shake it up' cards will be too hard for the 5/6 class, but it really got us thinking hard!More > < Less

About Kerfuddle


If you get invited to play “Kerfuddle,” here’s what to expect: a fast-paced word game with “Shake It Up” cards for a whole other layer of amusement and challenge.

Kick off the game by rolling the number cube. This determines the minimum length of each word that round. Then, shake up the letter cubes in the Kerfuddle cup and roll them on to the game mat. Whatever letters land face up are your material for that round.

Start the three minute timer. You have exactly that time to come up with as many words as possible. But there’s a twist. Each round has a Shake It Up card, with creative restrictions to make sure no two rounds are the same (e.g., "you must write with your opposite hand" or "you can't use "S" to make words plural").

Who wins Kerfuddle? The person with the most points at the end of all the rounds.

From kids learning how to spell to word-game connoisseurs, this full featured, travel-sized game is for everyone and everywhere.
