A recent Penny Arcade post has brought the card game Quiddler to my attention.
It's a card game, about words. ^_^ I like cards, I like words, I'm probably going to like Quiddler.
The cards are like Scrabble tiles. There are points for each letter, and there are bonuses for whomever makes the longest word or the most words. You have to use all your cards. It's similar to 3-13 in that the first hand starts with three cards, the next, four, and so on. After someone goes out, the remaining players have one last turn to use as many cards in their hand as they can (left over cards count against you).
I can't be the only one who thinks this sounds brilliant, can I? ^_^
