Kerflip! by Creative Foundry Gameworks is a super fun, fast-thinking anagram game that is unlike anything I’ve ever seen. Designed for 2-4 players ages 8+, this game is a fast-paced twist on other word play games that makes it entertaining and simple to play for everyone. The premise of Kerflip! is simple: make words using the selected tiles faster than your opponents. Once a letter has been used, it flips to the orange side and is then worth half the points. Everyone receives points if they make a word, though.
It’s hard to explain the game in words, so I highly recommend you watch the video below to give a better demonstration than I can . . .
The thing that makes this game even better is that it has a genius setup and cleanup. The entire game play takes place inside the box and the tiles are sent down a chute when they’re used up, and then funneled into a storage area. Instead of cleaning up tons of separate pieces, they are easily dumped back into their storage pouch for the next time.
