Word-building meets deck-building in the unique game Paperback.
Each player starts the game with a hand of the same 10 cards. Half wilds (which are also your victory point cards, called Fame in Paperback), and half letter cards: R, S, T, L, N.
Each round, a player will have 5 cards in their hand to try to form a word with. Players may also used a shared common letter in their word (usually a vowel). Players must try to form the best word possible with the cards in their hand because doing so will earn them points to buy newer and better cards. These new letters will not only let them form longer words, but may also contain special powers that activate when used. In addition to letter cards, players may buy fame cards that will earn then victory points and also act as wild cards for letters in a word. At the end of the game, the player with the most fame will win.
