A mix between a crossword and scrabble. Great idea for everyone to be playing seperately, and with the time limit it becomes a fast paced brain teaser. Quite funny how quickly your vocab vanishes when there's only 5 seconds to get 7 words on your board.

The directions for this game, unless you had read them for yourself, were particularly hard to describe second-hand. Now, I am not a great lover of crosswords, so it was a hard game to get into the swing of. The scrabble angle was a little easier, as I have spent many hours honing my skills with the letter tiles to make ever more higher scoring words.

A great deal of thought power is necessary, and if you are at all susceptible to brain freeze in high stress, timed games, this may not be for you.

In short, although I didn't play for long, I had the feeling this game isn't for me. Not one I will be looking to add to my game cupboard.
