Enjoy a mental reboot while gaining spelling and vocabulary skills with the all-new Candygrams. Simply roll the dice, match the colors, and create words. In this original word game, each player builds his own crossword, matching the colors rolled by the dice. Simple, yet strategic, Candygrams is designed to develop word skills, while sharpening minds.
The color restrictions of the dice add a surprise twist to this Scrabble-type game. The instructions for play are clear and succinct, with two alternatives, so getting started is a snap. The gameplay is relatively short, about 15 minutes, and with no turn-taking, and minimal waiting on other players, this is the perfect game for young players. Candygrams comes with 111 hefty tiles in three bright colors, two large six-sided dice with colored faces that match the tiles, and complete instructions. Recommended for ages 7 and up, however, Candygrams is challenging even for teens and adults.
Contains no edible materials.
From the Manufacturer:
Candygrams is as simple as rolling the dice, matching colors, and making words. But to win, you’ll need just the right combination of skill, strategy…and luck!

One that encourages longer, more interesting words and rewards strategic thinking. Not based on math. Not based on speed. A word game based on…words!

”Candygrams is a fun new game. It reminds me of the very popular Bananagrams game but with a twist that makes the playing field a little more even for younger wordsmiths especially.”Read the Review
This is such a great game.
The quality of the game itself is excellent.
It's easy to learn so you'll be able to play right away.
It's like building your own scrabble board, but with the unique twist of only being able to play letters that the colors shown on the dice rolled.
I've been playing with my 8 year old,
But also using it to help my 4 year old learn colors, and letter recognition and spelling sight words.
We really enjoy this game. The color aspect makes it a more even playing field for different ages and abilities as opposed to kids banana grams. We struggle sometimes to find games that my youngest (6yrs old) has a fighting chance to win and this is a good option. And it gets her building words in a fun way!
My high schooler needed extra spelling practice. This fun game is the perfect addition to our collection. Shes practicing spelling without pressure of a curriculum. We love it. 1
As a family of Bananagrams fans we really love this game!! The colors appeal to my little girls especially and they call it the Valentines word game. The dice adds a flair to the game and we are having a lot of fun with it. Personally I would rather do spelling this way :0)
We got this as a bonus for buying a complete curriculum and we use it to help with spelling words. We will use it more often when he begins to spell better.
