Crossword Cubes Dice Game Giveaway

My family loves word games. My grandmother did every crossword puzzle she could find. My mom loves Scrabble and is always looking for someone to challenge her. My favorite is Boogle and having to form words sideways and backwards.


When I saw Crossword Cubes, I knew that my family would have fun!



It starts at age 8, so I asked my 9 year old to play with me. He was up for the challenge! Could he beat his old ma?


Like Yahtzee (another family favorite!), you roll the dice out of the cup. 13 letters spill in front of you and it is your job to start forming as many words as you can out of these letters. The tricky part is one letter of each word has to be touching the next word – like a crossword puzzle!


Each letter is a value and when you have thought of as many words as you can, jot down your score, and it’s the next players turn. Play until someone earns 300 points.


I loved watching C’Man’s little brain go to work!

It was a close game! I only beat him in the last round that was because I used up all of my letters and earned a 20 point bonus!


Great Job C’Man! Can’t wait to play again! 🙂


WIN Crossword Cubes for you family (ARV $7.99)

It would make a great stocking stuffer too as it’s the perfect size!


Good Luck!
