      Creator, please let us know when you come out with larger size cards. Love the game and thanks a million.

    3. Rewordable Creator on August 23

      @Ben Great to hear! Always cool to hear about the rule variants people use when playing. And yes, it is available outside the US (including most of the non-US Amazon sites). We're planning on collecting and adding more info about international availability to our site soon.

      Hey, love the fact that it's now available in shops. Outside the US too? We've settled on a four card, four reward game, especially when we have newcomers because it opens the game out faster. My longest word so far from cards in my hand has been castanet, but I have made longer by stealing and adding to other people's words, or using cards from the pool as well.

    5. Rewordable Creator on August 23

      @David Thanks! And great to hear you're enjoying the game! And yes, we'll definitely consider a larger card size variant for the future. Thanks so much for the feedback!

      In the future, do you think you might offer poker size cards for the game? I know that they would take up more room on the table but they'd be much easier to shuffle. Just a thought and we are really enjoying the game. Thanks again

      I wanted to let you know that I have received my pledge. The wife and I played it for the first time tonight and we enjoyed it very much. My brain hurt afterwards and yes, the wife beat me by 11 points. Great game! Thank you so much. I see you have it available on Amazon too. Christmas gifts, here I come....

      @Sien Sorry about that! We will follow up with you to sort this out.

      Hi! My copy of Rewordable has arrived in Taiwan! Here is a picture of my students playing the game! The little electronic gadget in front of some students is their dictionary! They use it to check out whether certain words exist! :-D https://www.dropbox.com/s/q73fyn4o8nscgca/students_playing_Rewordable_1_201707.JPG…

      @Ben Great to hear! And thanks for sharing.

      For your first question, though the deck composition was very carefully optimized, the game should be ok with a lost card or two. Since each play uses a different subset of the entire deck, it is designed to be played with different combinations (or lack of) cards. Write-your-own blank cards are an interesting suggestion though.

      For, failed challenges, we did debate this. We liked that no penalty for challenging put an emphasis on learning words as opposed to the game mechanic of bluffing fake words. People tend to have varying opinions on this though and end up making their own house rules here regardless (which we're ok with).

      I have played with a few different groups on my recent camping trips, and we had a total blast with it each game. It's fun for everyone throughout the game, which is important. It has a lot of fun moments and is a great new word game experience. I have gotten to pull out some great vocab words, and even learned a few new ones. I would like to suggest that you include some blank cards with each game so that if a card or two are lost, one could replace them. I am nervous about this, so would you consider selling blank cards for such a purpose? Also, to address an earlier comment about the difficulty of shuffling, I also found that to be the case, but for the initial shuffling, I found it easier to just slide a big pile of them around on a table for a while. I'd say the card size is optimal for ease of play, and the shuffling process just requires some patience and care. I think this game would be fun as a digital game as well, where the shuffling process could be automated. One rule question: did you play around with any consequences for a failed challenge? It seems odd that people can challenge every word with no consequences. I guess it does provide a chance to better learn word definitions so it's not that bad of a thing.

      @Alex Great to hear your coworkers liked it! The game will be available for purchase in late August. We will be sending out an update with more info closer to then. And for folks not on Kickstarter that like the game, we will be posting on our site (rewordable.com) and all our social media channels then too.

    22. Rewordable Creator on July 15

      @James We will request your tracking number and will message you with an update. Thanks!

      Can't wait to play this! Is there any tracking info for international backers, I'm in Japan and was just wondering.

    28. Rewordable Creator on July 5

      @Ben Thanks for the feedback. For scoring, we often try to explain it both ways to try be clearer, but yes, the simplest explanation is that each letter is worth one point. And having all the reward tokens visible can be a fun variant, but you're right – one player can make a pretty sizable lead. Great to hear you're enjoying the game!

    29. Ben Vost on July 4

      I completely see your point. We also tried playing with all reward cards available from the start but found it unbalanced things too much, often with one player playing a single word and getting five or six rewards. I think you over-complicate things in the rules in the box by saying "Blue cards are worth one point, pink cards are worth 2...", etc. It's easier to say "Every letter played is worth a point". You say it on the site. :) In any case, this is a game we'll play a lot, thank you.

    30. Rewordable Creator on July 4

      @Ben Good to hear! So we went back and forth on the single S card a lot during playtesting. It definitely makes stealing easier, but we ultimately decided that it was too valuable. When someone got a single S card, they often would save it for the end and then could win based solely on that. We balanced its absence though by including an appropriate distribution of the letter S in pink and yellow cards.

    31. Ben Vost on July 3

      We've played it a few times now and really love it. We added an extra reward card to the pool - it means they cycle more easily, and we were wondering about the absence of single s cards? It would certainly make stealing words easier :)

      @Paul Thanks for sharing the photo!

      @Stuart Really cool to hear that your students are enjoying it!

      @Steve Great to hear you both like it!

      @Kristine Good to hear you received your copy (and stickers)! Hope you enjoy the game!

      @John Glad you like it! We experimented with more cards in players' hands, but it tended to slow things down a bit. Definitely gives more options for building words though.

      Got mine a few days ago! Here is a pic of the inaugural game!

      I received my copy of the game a couple of days ago. Taken it into my class and the children love it! Great for vocabulary and spelling. They're even staying in at lunch to play a couple of rounds. �

    38. Steve Hiner on June 27

      My wife will play it with me. That makes any game 4 stars in my book. The fact that I also like it makes it an easy 5 stars. "I'd play that" in my wife's voice is a guaranteed Kickstarter pledge maker for me and I'm so glad I got this one. We'll play this for years.

    39. Kristine Louise Wright on June 26

      Just taken receipt of my copy in the UK. For those waiting it's being delivered by DHL and is small enough to fit through your letter box. Have opened my package and love the stickers, those were an unexpected gift, thank you. Game itself looks fantastic and absolutely no issues with the card size (I think they are perfect for this type of game). Hoping I'll be able to convince my OH and DD to play a game or two later this evening.

      Got the game and we liked it. The cards were a bit difficult to shuffle due to their size. I think that we will adapt the rules next time to give each person an extra 2 cards in their hand for a 4 person game to make it more fun next time around. Thanks, it's a different game to add to game night.

    41. Rewordable Creator on June 24

      @Karen Thanks for the feedback. We had playtested with different card sizes and decided on smaller cards so that more words could fit on a table. Games with 2-4 players only use 60 cards – so that helps with shuffling, but yes they can be tricky to shuffle especially when they're brand new.

    42. Karen Goodman on June 23

      Received mine just the other day and I must say I was extremely disappointed at the small card size. Seriously how do you expect people to shuffle 120 mini cards? It's my own fault for not seeing it/asking in the campaign but none of the pictures looked like they were mini cards. I almost don't even want to unwrap it to even try playing it, it's a huge functionality loss. :(

    43. Rewordable Creator on June 23

      Great to hear about the game being delivered all over! Thanks all!

      @Morgan Retail launch (of the next print run) is planned for late August. We'll keep you all posted.
