The Gaming Corner: Quiddler

The name of the game is worth 31 points
Nope, I didn't just hit a bunch of keys accidentally when typing the name of this post. The game I will be gushing over is called Quiddler and it is fun.

Each player is dealt a hand of cards and then they take turns drawing and discarding one card. If they are able to play all of their cards, except for the one they discard, as words, then they can lay them down. Each player then gets one more turn to play as many of their cards as possible. The cards you have played in words are then scored, and the cards you were unable to play are counted against you.
N would score you 5 points if played in a word, but would lose you 5 points if left in your hand
The game is played in a series of rounds. During the first round, every player is dealt three cards. The second round sees each player with four cards, the third five and so on until the eighth and final round where each player has ten cards in their hand. After eight rounds, the player with the highest combined score wins.

Simple. And yet oh so fun.
