POSSUM is a dice game in which players use six dice to spell out words and earn points by filling categories on their scorecards. The categories are arranged by parts of speech. Players have to make nouns, verbs, and adjectives. They also try to make 5- and 6-letter words of any part of speech. Players get extra points for using less common letters in their words. In addition, players can have fun by making up one word—a POSSUM word—as long as they can use it in a sentence and name its part of speech in that sentence. Points are recorded on a scorecard, and the player with the most points at the end of the game is the winner. Includes an instruction sheet, 6 letter dice, and 100 scorecards.
