This pack of playing cards was specially designed as a fun way to enhance your word skills. The cards combine elements of scrabble, rummy and countdown and are great as part of 11+ preparation. Each card contains a letter, which can be used to play word games, and a list of 5 carefully selected words designed to enhance your creativity, vocabulary and memory skills. Each card has a partner card with synonyms (words of similar meaning – synonym questions appear frequently in the 11+ exam). The pack comes with rules for lots of games and we have found that people like to invent their own games too. Although these cards were designed for 11+ preparation, they are great fun for all ages. Many of the games can be made more challenging if so desired.
