A very neat twist on your typical grid-and-letter-tiles word games, this game features a gridded gameboard and letter tiles in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some take up only one square, others take a 3 x 3 section, others are tall and narrow, some are wide and short, etc. To begin the game, several letter tiles are placed around the board. Then on each subsequent turn players must match tiles to letters already on the board to form words. The words won't be neatly in rows or columns, but each subsequent letter in the word must be touching the previous letter in some manner (above, below, next to, or diagonally). Once you place a letter, you must write down all the words you formed other players will be looking for anything you miss so once you are finished they can "steal" words for their lists. You are somewhat limited by the shape of each tile which adds to the challenge, and it can be surprisingly hard to find all the possible words you can create each turn. 2-6 players. ~ Megan
