Players build a deck of letters with various powers and race to 60 fame points to win. Some of the features:
-No wilds in your deck – any card can be wild.
-Push your luck for more cards with the Ink system.
-Match genre colors to gain bonus abilities on your cards.
-New “Timeless Classic” letter cards stay in play until an opponent uses them.
In addition to the competitive race mode for 2-5 players, the base game includes several variant rules, including Literary Awards, Adverts, Player Powers, and Events; and a co-op mode for 1-4 players, in which players join forces against one of four simulated opponents, each of which is proficient in a different deck genre.
