Letter Tycoon : Words are hard, letters are easier.

Letter Tycoon was chosen as a Mensa Mind Games Winner for 2015.
Don't judge too quickly! It's not your average word-game.

In Letter Tycoon, by Brad Brooks, you're gonna build your Alphabet Empire!
It's the perfect mix of alphabet fun, cunning strategy and intellectual genius.

Each player starts off with 7 letter cards in their hand and 3 community cards are laid out. Use the 7 cards along with the 3 community cards to create the most valuable words to earn money and stocks. Purchase as many letter patents as you can and earn money every time your opponent uses them to build their words. Look out especially for the letter patents with special powers. Have the most patents, stocks and money at the end and become the Letter Tycoon.

Build words, buy letters and score big!
It's as easy and fun as it sound.
Guaranteed !

You can try the game right here:

Thanks to the help of our developer jephly, the game is working perfectly well for all to enjoy.
Also, we want to thank the game designer Brad Brooks, and the publisher Breaking Games for this really original game.

Go try it !

Thanks for such a splendid implementation!
btw manual challenge takes too long for turn-based games, however Arena system forces to play with it.
Can it be changed to automatic challenge?

Only played it a couple times but really nice for a dictionary game.

Btw. Should this post not be shown in the News section of BGA? For me it's still Carcasonne - Hunters & Gatherers as last entry.

It's looking good now-it's harder to accidentally miss discarding etc than it was - but Agree about the arena- for turn based having manual challenge is a real pain. Would be nice if this could change to3X automatic

For that matter, compound doubling is a bit broken too.

Le jeu a l'air passionnant, mais est-il prévu de pouvoir jouer en français ?
