The Big Idea
Surf’s up! Race to slide and swap your letter flip-flops, lining them up to make as many connected words as you can. Go BIG – make the longest word or finish first for extra points. Paddle in last, and it’s wipe-out city! This tricky take on word games is perfect for family game night and grown-up get-togethers alike. For 2-4 players.

Shh… They’re Learning!
  • Practices word-building and spelling
  • Encourages social skills

  • Cut to the Chase
  • Timed word-building race with a twist
  • Flip letters, build words, and score points to win
  • Great for parties and family get-togethers

  • Let’s Play
    1. Players race to arrange word chains from their 15 double-sided letter tiles. Each word must begin and end with a letter in the chain and use all of the letters in between, in order.
    2. When time’s up, players count their words, winning extra points for using all of their letters, building the longest word, and building the most words.
    3. The player with the most points after 5 rounds is the Big Kahuna and wins the game!

      Comments about Surfside Scramble™ Word Game:

      I am an elementary school teacher. I played this game with my 10-year-old son first and he became frustrated that words had to begin with the last letter of previous words, at first. Once he got the hang of it, he had more fun but he said it just made him want to play Scrabble. When I let my 6th graders play, they were confused and frustrated with the game as well. I sat down with them and we played together and then the fun began. They were able to see what I was doing and they caught on rather quickly. Without prompting, they also said that it was like Scrabble but less fun. My students felt that it was a game that was "trying too hard to be educational." I love the concept of the game so I played with a group of other teachers. We had a blast! No one was confused and we were able to have fun with our words and we became very competitive, very quickly. It is a fun and compact game that I would take with me to parties, but the downside to using it in the classroom is that I would need to be actively playing the game with the students in order for it to be utilized.

      I am an elementary school teacher. I received this game from a former colleague of mine who is now at Educational Insights. I played this game with my 10-year-old son first and he became frustrated that words had to begin with the last letter of previous words, at first. Once he got the hang of it, he had more fun but he said it just made him want to play Scrabble. When I let my 6th graders play, they were confused and frustrated with the game as well.
