New-school card game Rewordable launched on Kickstarter this week, taking the game from its inception at the NYU Game Center and making it public.
The game is one of seven in the 2016 NYU Game Center incubator cohort. It is “a uniquely fragmented word-building card game, designed for making longer, quicker, and more colorful words,” it says.
The game has so far been backed by more than 130 people and raised more than $5,000 out of a modest $15,000 goal.

Rewordable is the work of Allison Parrish, Adam Simon and Tim Szetela. The game came out of a master’s course at NYU’s ITP program, where Parrish is on the faculty.
The card game involves building words “of increasing length and complexity,” according to its creators, “by drawing from their own hand or by stealing cards from other players.”
