    The Pla-Pak deck has two cards for each letter, showing a few items that start with that letter, and two "Dunce" cards, showing a boy on a stool wearing a traditional Dunce cap.

    Rules for 4 games are included:

    • Rummy-Dunce: 2-4 players each get 10 cards. Typical draw-and-discard play is done until one player can use his hand to spell one or more words; they score 10 points plus 1 point per each letter in others' hands that are not used in words they spell from their hands. Dunce cards are wild and stand for any letter. The first to 50 points wins.
    • Grand Champion: Like Rummy-Dunce, except the discard pile is spread out to see each card. One can take any card in the discard pile along with every card above it as long as they immediately lay down a word using that letter; only one card is discarded. When the deck is used up players use as many of their cards as they can to form words, and get one point per unused card. Each player is eliminated on reaching 50 total points, and the last player left is Grand Champion.
    • Hit the Bowl: A player sits in a chair and throws each card one at a time at a bowl 6 feet away. After the deck is all used the player gets 1 point for each card in the bowl, and spells as many words as they can from those cards, scoring the length of each word. First player to 50 wins.
    • Dunce: Played like Old Maid, using just one of the Dunce cards.
