Eternal Hearts Rummy Roots: English Vocabulary Building Game Ages 8 to Adult

What do you get when you combine Greek roots tele (far away) and skopeo (to look at)? "Telescope," a device that allows us to "look at things far away"! Fun and fast-paced, this challenging card game is a great way to build vocabulary, word comprehension, and alphabetical skills by exploring the Greek and Latin roots of our English language. Includes 90 cards: 27 Greek, 15 Latin, 42 English, 4 Stump, and 2 Bonus. Ages 8 to adult.

My kids love this! It's a great game that helps them learn the roots of common words; it has really helped their vocabulary and their appreciation for other languages.

My 17 and 15 year old love to play this game. The game is fun (like Rummy) and they learn while playing.

This game is so much fun! There are four different levels of play, with each being more challenging. The first level is not hard to play. From what we read, the other levels should not be any more difficult to learn. It is helping both my son & myself understand our words more fully. Since it is such a fast paced game, we have not had any problems adding it to our home school routine. Thank you for such a great product that I am happy to recommend to everyone!

My 9 & 15 year old love to play cards & loved this game. I love that you can break the deck down & add cards as the first level is mastered. This caused us a problem as my 9 year old took it to her friends house, who loved it at 7 years, but those few cards got lost. Now I will have to rebuy the product!

My 9 year old loves to play the "go fish" version of the game, where you match the Latin or Greek root with the English meaning. The only slight drawback is that we are using it to supliment "English from the Roots up," and the cards do not have all the words we have studied. I plan on buying "More Roots" to see if the missing words are there.
