The great part about the vocabulary game Rummy Roots, is that you can learn 42 different Greek and Latin roots without a workbook or pen.

First you play a simple "Go Fish" game and become familiar with the roots. There are lists included to help with this. Once you've learned the roots, then there are three different ways you can play:

  • In Level 1, players combine roots to form English words.
  • In Level 2, players try to stump their opponents.
  • Level 3 is played like Rummy in which you combine three root combinations and expand vocabulary.

The good thing about this game, Rummy Roots and More Rummy Roots is that it remains fun with the additional use of some "stump" and "bonus" cards.

The next game follows along and teaches another 51 Latin and Greek roots.
