Word Pirates by The Haywire Group

This pirate word game was a treasure for kids that played it! Spell words, build bridges and block your opponents to be the first pirate to grab the treasure in the middle of the game board. Players loved when the jumbo die landed on a bridge or rock wall so they could add a piece to their path or slow down their opponent. Combining a letter dice word game with pirates racing for their treasure, Word Pirates added strategy beyond building words–drawing in players who weren’t as confident in their word skills. Language and literacy learning abounds as kids assemble words from their rolled dice, while spacial skills are reinforced as they strategically place their land bridges and rock walls to advance and impede the pirates.
