Race to the top

This is my review of UPWORDS. 1996 PARKER GAMES. THE 3D GAME OF HIGH RISE WORD BUILDING..

Having been introduced to this recently as an alternative to scrabble, it takes a while to get used to the different technique of changing words by building them up vertically to a maximum of five tiles in height. This often means changing short simple words in a "race to the top", rather than aiming to achieve long ones with high value tiles on squares giving double/triple word or letter scores. I suspect Upwords is less sophisticated and satisfying than Scrabble in terms of the potential to create interesting words, but it presents a new and different challenge.
