What is Applelettes? Good question. We'll tell you.
This apple-shaped pouched with a soft, zip-closed top includes 110 tiles with red capital letters that may be used to play three different games.
- In Appleletters
players alternately add tiles to the first or last letter of a word in the middle of the table, creating a continuous snake of new words.
- Apple Turnover
is similar to Appleletters. However, each player begins with 21 tiles instead of nine, and may actually replace an opponent's word with a longer word. The goal is to be the first player to get rid of tiles.
- In Applescore
players build words as long as possible in crossword-like fashion and get bonus points for length, palindromes and going out first.
- For 2+ players. Like Family Games? See 'em all here!
Why Our Experts Love It
We love this clever game.
It's just like dominos, but instead of connecting the DOTS, you connect the LETTERS! It's a fun word game that helps kids to work on their spelling and vocabulary skills! We especially love Appletters because it comes with rules to play different ways for different ages levels. There is even a level to challenge Mom & Dad!
RECOMMENDATION: Grab 2, you'll be glad you did when you are running late to a birthday party and you can pick an apple right out of your secret toy closet. And what a fun apple to give their teacher!
