BELOIT, Wis.— Patch Products introduced word game Chain Letters® in the summer of 2013, and already the game has earned four high-profile awards! It’s also caught the attention of the toy industry and key game reviewers. Some might call it a chain reaction!

Chain Letters has been named one of Dr. Toy’s 100 Best Products of 2013 – a noteworthy list to be on! It has also earned The National Parenting Center’s Seal of Approval. Additionally, it’s received a Parents’ Choice Recommendation, a Tillywig Best Family Fun Award and a Mom's Choice Gold Award!

Toy industry insiders Chris Byrne and Jim Silver got in on the action and filmed a humor-filled review of the game for Time to Play Magazine. You can check out the shenanigans for yourself here:

Perhaps Jeff Bogle said it best in his review of Chain Letters for his website Out With the Kids: “The board game with no board blends the delicacy of Operation, the nervous energy of Jenga, and the vocab requirements of a Dabble or Scrabble, while also demanding mental agility, focus, patience, a dash of gumption, and a bit of physical strength to hook letter after letter with your dominant arm raised in the air and the letters of your masterpiece (ooooh, that’d be a good one!) cascading down towards the orange pile of I‘s and A‘s remaining on the table.”
