Our family has been having a blast playing Get 4 & Score and Letter Slide during school time and Family Game Night. They are both vibrant with colors and come in sturdy boxes. There is nothing worse than purchasing a game with a cheap box. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to throw away games due to missing pieces.

Get 4 & Score

This is a favorite of my older children, however, I was able to modify it so our whole family could play together. Just flip over the top card in the deck from each of the Four Letter Card piles and roll the dice to reveal their point values. Next, turn over the top category card and flip over the timer.

Players scurry to write four answers correlating with the category and starting with the letter on each of the flipped cards. Players reveal their answers and score points based on the dice rolled after the timer expires. After 10 rounds, the player with the highest score wins! It really gets them thinking.

Letter Slide

My little ones enjoy the challenge of this game. It took them a few games to really get the hang of it. I did modify the rules for my 4 year old. Helping my second grader just a few times made him feel like he was Einstein. He has been working on 4 letter words, so this is very appropriate for him.

Just pick Letter Tiles to make as many four-letter words as you can before the timer runs out. Place one Letter Tile from each correctly spelled word onto a corresponding letter space.  Cover all the Letter Spaces on your Slide Board first to win the game!
