Fletter is a card game where you have to shout out words at rapid-fire speed from the letters placed before you before the other players can. Use your brain to string the letters into words and use your voice to claim them!
The words claimed by you will then translate into the number of points you’ve made. You needn’t have a supercalifragilisticexpialidocious vocabulary to play Fletter; just a keen eye, a knack for quick thinking and a loud voice.
What our testers said

What our experts think
This fun and fast-paced game with an educational twist promoted a lot of hilarity amongst our testers. We liked that it encouraged cognitive skills in quick thinking and concentration as the children tried to form words from the letters on the table, and remember whether a word had already been used by another player. This is also great practice for spelling!
As the game progressed, our testers were required to develop strategies to try and make the highest scoring words. The promotion of vocabulary building and communication makes it a great game for the whole family and as it continues, it becomes more challenging (particularly for younger children) which also means that it can continue to be enjoyed as their vocabulary develops to a higher level. Some of our testers did need a little clarification on the instructions from an adult.
