    Word Up has always been the board game of choice with our students and teachers … Many of our children and teenage classes are 3 hours long, and this can be an awfully long time for some students to retain their enthusiasm. So it is great to see that Word Up can rekindle that spark and get them speaking and laughing again.

    I’m a TEFL teacher and had already used Word Up with my students because they had it in our school access center. But I’m glad I purchased the “Classroom Pack” for myself – exact same game and same size box but enough of everything to play two games simultaneously, which is very handy in class. Great game and brilliant idea!
