Description

You are an author trying to finish kitschy paperback novels. Complete Westerns, Science Fiction, Romance or even a Crime Noir. Live the dream — and maybe pay the bills. Word-building meets deck-building in the unique game Paperback.

Players start with a deck of letter cards and wild cards. Each hand they form words, and purchase more powerful letters based on how well their word scored. Most letters have abilities that activate when then are used in a word, such as drawing more cards or double letter score. Players buy wilds to gain victory points.

Variant included for cooperative play.

A lovely gentle game

Our kids (10 & 7) love this game. It was recommended to us by the lovely staff in Athena.

A great collaboration game

A great little game where you have to work as a team to get the treasure... until one of you goes rogue!

The best sleeves for MTG

Tough, durable and they feel great

Packs arrived on time and in good condition, one or two seemed to be possibly resealed but I have faith that they weren't.

Would order again
