Perquackey is a set of anagram-generating game equipment, produced by Cardinal Industries, Inc. of Long Island City, New York. It was previously produced by Lakeside Toys, a division of Lakeside Industries, Inc. of Minneapolis, MN,[1][2] and originally by The Shreve Company of Los Angeles, CA. It is similar to the game Spill & Spell.[3]

Simplified gameplay[edit]

Each player throws ten or thirteen dice with letters printed on their faces. They must rearrange them into as many words as possible within a certain time, reusing the same letter set repeatedly. Points are scored according to the length of each word and the number of words made. Once a player reaches a certain score, they must use all thirteen dice, and are not allowed to make words that contain only three letters.

The dice are labeled as follows:

  • Two Black Letter Dice: A, A, A, E, E, E
  • Black Letter Die: B, I, T, K, R, H
  • Black Letter Die: H, R, F, S, U, I
  • Black Letter Die: G, R, M, S, U, I
  • Black Letter Die: Z, E, X, Q, V, J
  • Black Letter Die: F, T, N, P, U, I
  • Black Letter Die: M, O, O, P, C, W
  • Black Letter Die: D, R, T, L, O, N
  • Black Letter Die: B, O, Y, L, O, W
  • Red Letter Die: S, Q, Y, W, V, S
