Cardwords is a word card game where each card has a letter and players spell words with them. Both double deck and single deck versions have been published.
Each deck has two copies of each letter of the alphabet, along with a point value of 1-4 points. In all of the games playable with these decks, a duplicate letter can be used as a wild card standing for any letter, e.g. in "FFGHT", since there are two 'F's one can be considered an 'I', spelling "FIGHT".
Rules are included for seven games:
1: A fishing game like Logomachy (which is like Scopa), where a card played either combines with cards on the table to make a word, or is left on the table.
2: Poker using words, either 5-card stud, 7-card stud or 5-card draw.
3: Bingo, each player having a 3x3 array of cards, turning cards one at a time in any order (except the middle card last), with the first 3-letter word formed winning.
4: Rummy, where players draw but never discard, laying down words from their hand or adding to words on the table, and the first player to play all their hand wins.
5: Rummy, like #4 except a card is discarded at the end of each turn.
6: Rummy, like #5 except that adding letters to a word lets you steal the word.
7: Players start with 13-card hands, all players simultaneously pass a card to the left until one player announces having a word worth 15+ points and claims the pot. Then the player with the word gives one-word clues to their word until another player guesses their word, and the two split the second pot.
Each game uses chips, with players adding chips to the pot during play, and the winner claiming the pot. Chips are not provided in the game.
