It’s not quite a board game, definitely not a video game, and a whole lot of fun! It plays very quickly and works for any number of players (ages 10+ – can be slightly younger if simple spelling of words is not frustrating).
Show Me the Kwan is a fast-paced, dice rolling, word game. Given the chosen category the players must call out fitting words where either the first, second or last letter correspond to the lettered dice that were rolled. Each dice has an assigned point value. At the end of the 1 minute round, all players must count their points on the dice they collected.
We love this game! It is so easy that my 7 and 9 year old sons can grasp it, and really enjoy playing it. They are both avid readers, and do really good in spelling in school. This is a fun game that allows them to use these skills that they have learned! We are all a little competitive when it comes to family game night, and this game really brings out the competition between us. Show Me The Kwan really makes you use your brain. You have the think of words for the letters on the dice, and you have to do it quickly, before the other players come up with a word and take all the letters. The player with the most dice, and the most points is the winner. This game comes in a nice zippered bag so you can take it with you when you visit friends or travel with the kids.
