Product description

MB Games : Crossword
Released in 1978

To Play:

1. To decide who plays first each player picks a cube, without looking at it, out of the cup and rolls it. The player rolling the highest point value starts the game.
2. The first player places all 13 cubes in the cup, rolls them onto the playing surface and sets the timer.
3. Using only the letters which appear on the top surface of the cubes the player forms words across and down in a crossword fashion. Only words found in a standard dictionary are allowed. There are two joker squares that can be substituted for any letter.
4. The player whose turn it is may re-arrange the cubes in any way they choose during the time limit.
5. Each of the letters have a point value, except the jokers which do not score. At the end of the time limit the used letters are totalled up and then the total of any unused letters are deducted to give the final score for that round.

The winner is the player(s) who have the highest total after the pre-determined number of rounds or the first player to reach a pre-determined score.

* All game pieces are present.
