Have fun while improving your grammar with this witty and informative card game for language lovers based on the New York Times bestseller by Random House’s copy chief, Benjamin Dreyer.
Whats’ wrong with this sentence? If that misplaced apostrophe flew right up your nose, then this is the game for you.
Inside are 100 cards, each with a sentence for you, the copyeditor, to correct or, alternatively, to STET—a copyeditor’s term meaning “let it stand.”
The first player to spot the error or correctly call out STET! gets that card.
There are two ways to play: compete for points in a straightforward grammar game or whip the author’s sentences into splendid shape with style and syntax. The player with the most cards at the end of the game wins!
This is the perfect game for every level of writer, from high school students who want to brush up before a test to coworkers looking for an engaging icebreaker.
WithSTET!, English has never been more stylish.
