Word on the Street and Word On the Street Junior
( Out of the Box Publishing $24.95 Score: )

This is a word game that is nothing like your old scrabble set. Players (or two opposing teams) take turns spelling a word that fits a category drawn from the playing cards time runs out. They move the letter chips on the playing board to their side of the street. Now the other side takes a turn. They draw a category card, choose a word and spell it. The object is to capture 9 letters from the opponents' letters and put them on your side of the street. Once captured letters cannot be used or recaptured by the other team. Just to add to the challenge, there are no vowels in the letters. You have to picture them in your head. This is by no means an easy game, but it does keep players on their toes. It is really fun when the team works to not only spell, but find a word that allow for capturing the other team's letters. Our testers liked the tension.

New for 2010, Word on the Street Junior--similar game play but designed for kids 8 & up. The recommended game play is to by teams and the goal is now to capture 8 letters off the street to win. We liked the concept of playing in teams for mixed ages (or more likely parent/grandparent/kids). A nice variation for a younger crowd.
