Oh Scrud!

Oh Scrud! (spelling game) $7.95. What makes this game different, and so much better than other spelling games that we've tried, is the fast pace of play, with everyone working as fast as they can to build words from their cards at the same time. You can easily handicap more advanced players by requiring them to make longer words than the younger players, so that everyone has a good challenge and a good chance at winning.

Review of Oh Scrud!

by Susan Richman

from Fall '91 issue of PA Homeschoolers

When I find a spelling game that is really fun and that my kids really like, I'm elated, as spelling ability is not the strong suit around here. And we've just found one and like it so much that we're offering it for sale now in our catalog. It's called "Oh Scrud!" and it's a card game (108 cards, professionally made, full directions included), invented by a family in Utah who really seems to know what makes for good family fun. What makes it different, and so much better than other spelling games we've tried, is the fast pace of play, with everyone working as fast as they can to build words from their cards at the same time. There's no irritating 5 minute wait while your younger sibling labors over what word to put on the Scrabble board. There are even a smattering of "chance" cards that add spice and extra challenge and a fast change of action. And maybe the best is that you can easily handicap more advanced players by requiring them to make longer words than the younger players, so that everyone has a good challenge, and a good chance at winning. It's terrific and we hope you like it as much as we do!

We received "Oh Scrud!" a few days ago and already it is a hit. Even my almost 6-year-old can join in-- we don't keep score and whoever reaches "Oh Scrud!" first helps someone else make their 3 words until we get a second place winner. -- Pam Smith in Issue 40, PA Homeschoolers.
