Letres, a new, innovative game, helps children develop language and thinking skills. It's a cross between Scrabble and Rummy. The rules can be learned easily. The dealer decides on how many cards to deal, minimum is 3, maximum is 8. The first person to make a word wins. You must use all the cards to make a word, so if you get five cards, you must make a 5-letter word.The more cards you deal the more challenging. This is a terrific family and classroom game.
