Speedeebee is a travel-friendly game for children 8 and up that has won the 2013 Teachers' Choice Award for the Family by Learning Magazine. It comes in a cute little round tin and contains 50 card, 4 letter dice and rule.
We found the game very easy to learn. Basically, there are over 150 word challenges. A player picks a challenge, reads it aloud and rolls the dice and the challenge begins. Challenges might be something like, "Name an object you can use while camping, containing none of these letters (that would be on the 4 rolled dice)." The first person who correctly answers the challenge, wins the card and chooses the next challenge. Some other examples of challenges are " Name a song title containing this letter (choose one letter die to roll)" or "Find a word containing this letter twice (throw one die)." At the end of the game, the person with the most cards wins.
