In 1980 Eric Parein invented the innovating Kubble WordGame. Everybody playing the same draw of 3 x 10 letters! Solo or unlimited number of players! The name. First it was written as CUBBLE with a C in front. It was a mix of the word CLUB, with Scrabble in mind. Later the C was replaced by the letter K to form a more exclusive brand. Eventually the full name became ‘the KUBBLE WordGame’. With the ever increasing popularity of the internet it is time to move the KUBBLE WordGame to a higher level. The first playing cards! Who joins in? 50 cents in the jar, please! ... towards another dimension!
the KUBBLE WordGame Kubble mainly is a tactical game. It often is not only a matter of making the longest words, but rather seeking combination with the next line(s). This increases your score the most! The ‘KubbleNumbers’ The originality of Kubble also resides in its scoring; each letter in a word gets the number of points relative to its place in that word! The score for the whole word amounts to the sum of all those points. See the ‘KubbleNumbers’ scale under. Example: A word of six letters is worth 21 points, being the sum of 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 points.
How do you play? <ul><li>Kubble has a task of three times 10 letters. </li></ul><ul><li>With these letters a solution can be found per row, one or more words can be entered. </li></ul><ul><li>Blanco squares must separate words. </li></ul><ul><li>These words then are attributed points, again row by row. </li></ul><ul><li>Only... One can also go and make longer words from one row to the next row(s). Yes, even from the last row to the first row where you possibly started. </li></ul><ul><li>The dot in front of the row then is blackened. </li></ul><ul><li>The points are here again attributed, well taking into account to attribute points for the whole new constituted word! This way your total score can grow significantly! (the shown KUBBLE cards on top are in the Dutch language…) </li></ul>
