Multiple National Award Winner!
Parents' Choice Approved Award
"Challenging enough to keep teens and adults engaged, but simple enough for younger children to enjoy, players pass around letter cards in "a frenzy," scoring points by using the letters to spell four-letter words related to each round's chosen category. Categories include weather, hobbies, critters and many more. Upon completing their word, they must quickly grab a Frenzy prize. There aren't enough Frenzy prizes to go around, and once someone grabs a prize, the rest are available to other players; anyone without a prize loses points. The Frenzy prizes add a layer of excitement and several decibel levels to the game. Fun, fast paced and not as easy as it sounds."

Dr. Toy's Best Picks
Dr. Toy's Best Picks Children's Products" Awards Program was developed by noted play and child development authority, Stevanne Auerbach, Ph.D. (a.k.a. Dr. Toy) as a service to consumers who desire to purchase safe, affordable, educationally oriented, stimulating new toys and products for children.
"As a childhood specialist for over 40 years," says Dr. Toy, Director of the Institute for Childhood Resources, founded in San Francisco in 1975, "I have seen the continuous, essential need for more year-round resources for consumers to identify and choose the most appropriate, safe and engaging learning and developmental products for all children."
Dr. Toy's Best Picks" were carefully chosen from among thousands that she has reviewed at toy fairs, catalogs, and through many other sources, and by using extensive criteria she has developed over many years. Among the criteria used are: safety, age-appropriateness, design, durability, lasting play value, cultural and ethnic diversity, good transition from home to school, educational value, learning skills, creativity, improvement in the understanding of the community and the world, good value for price, and, naturally, fun.
The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval
"Word Frenzy ranks right up there with some of the finest and smartest word games you and your family will ever play. As one tester put it, "it's kind of like Scrabble with Musical Chairs." An odd pairing to be sure but there is some sense to it. The game appealed to testers of all ages and provided hours of entertainment as players try to think of four letter words associated with a category and then, in a pace that can only be described as frenzied, pass cards around until they complete the word they have in mind. A terrific vocabulary builder and best when lots of people join in."

"Where do I start with this one? Probably one of my all time favorite games! Our gang loves to play games. And when we brought Word Frenzy to the table, I wondered how much fun a simple word card game could be... BUT WAS I IN FOR A SURPRISE!!!
We had seven players around the table, and this game turned into an all out war (in a fun way). Players were getting downright ruthless in their quest to get a prize. Simple enough that even those who were not good spellers enjoyed the game tremendously ... and challenging enough every game player will be ready to take it on. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND WORD FRENZY!!!"

NWMOMMY.blogspot.com - Word FRENZY... A true hit!
Word Frenzy is a RIOT! It is fast paced, crazy, can get loud, but so hilarious! We are considering purchasing gloves for the players next time this gang plays, however, because a couple of the players have some pretty good nails going and they gave battle scars to other players, who were trying to also grab the prizes at the end of the round... which became a battle in and of itself, making for more laughter to go around.
Our Game Gang all agreed this game is on our TOP THREE - Must Play list !! You can't get any higher on the list with this gang !! Way to go Word Frenzy!!!
