For all Human Beans who love The BFG, the Whizzpopping Letters Game is perfect way to encourage a love of letters and learn word creation. Designed to aid both Key Stage 1 and 2 learning through play, the set contains three educational and fun word games featuring one of Roald Dahl’s most iconic characters for plenty of 3-in-1 word fun! These three challenging but fun word games, developed with guidelines for Key Stage 1 & 2, help children develop spelling and word building skills, whilst maintaining the fun and enjoyment of a card game.

Game 1: Build a BFG
To win this game you must be the first player to build a picture of The BFG with 8 cards won from spelling words. 9 cards are laid out in a 3 x 3 grid on the table, letter side up and each player is then dealt 5 cards. The players must take it in turns to make a word using the letters in front of them plus one letter from the grid if they need to. Each letter card forms part of the BFG picture so the longer the word the more pieces you win for your picture!

Game 2: The BFG Crossword Game
The aim is to earn points by creating words in a crossword style grid and the first player to 20 points wins the game! Each player starts with 5 letter cards and must try to make a word 2 or more letters long, with each letter being worth 1 point. The players must create new words that include at least one of the letters in the existing words and lay down their new letters off the letter already on the table to create a new word.

Game 3: Grab the Word Game
This great fun word game will see everyone grabbing for letters! Simply spread out all the letter cards face down. The first player spins the BFG spinner and can turn over any of the cards matching the picture on the spinner to reveal a letter. The play continues until a player spots a 3 letter word (or more) with the letters turned over and shout out the word before anyone else to win the cards! The player with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.

Each of the three fun word games have been designed for 2 to 4 players and suitable for age 6 years and over
