    Word Hustle is a strategic game of crosswords with sleek opportunities to hustle your opponents. It combines oversized dice with tactile wooden letter tiles and gameplay where each stage is meaningful.

    In this word game, you won't be sitting idly waiting for your turn. There's simultaneous building and player interaction in each phase – you can steal or share letters and make strategic moves to win.

    The game is designed to be both an inner challenge and an external competition! Word Hustle’s unique challenge of having to make new and better words with the same letters means each round gets MORE and MORE exciting. It turns out, THE HUMAN BRAIN LOVES THIS CHALLENGE. There’s as much pleasure in beating your own best score as there is in beating your opponents.

    And, Word Hustle’s not just for spelling-bee champs! The game has been tested by people of all types and ages to make sure it is accessible. You can play it with players of varied ages and skill levels!

    Word Hustle can be played anywhere anytime, thanks to the compact components and custom-designed tile bag with pocket. It's the ultimate traveling word game.

    The game will lead you to consider moves like:

    • Should I steal that valuable tile or go for more tiles for myself?
    • Should I make words quickly and put pressure on my opponents or take my time and make high-scoring words?
    • Can I outscore my previous round using the same letters but new words?

    What’s more, an Ultimate Hustle at the end of the game gives players a final chance to change the game outcome.

    Give in to this word-building pleasure… but stay alert!

    You never know when you might get hustled!
