Paperback - the novel deckbuilding game. Word-building meets deck-building - players start with a deck of letter cards and wild cards. Each hand they form words and purchase more powerful letters based on how well their word scored. Most letters have abilities that activate when they are used in a word, such as drawing more cards or double letter score. Players buy wilds to gain victory points.

Help Paige Turner become a famous author by completing Westerns, Science Fiction, Romance or even a Crime Noir novels. Live the dream — and maybe pay the bills.
