Looking for a good, single person game to keep your student occupied? This game (or is it a puzzle?) is up to the challenge. Starting with a set-up card, you place letter tiles to match either a 3x3, 4x3, or 4x4 puzzle. Then reorder them to make words across and down in all directions. Start as a Beginner and end up as a Pro with Intermediate, Advanced, and Expert levels in between. The 45 letter tiles are plastic (¾" x ¾" and ¼" thick) but have a nice, almost-like-wood feel to them. There are 40 puzzle set-up cards, color-coded as to difficulty. A small booklet provides answers. For ages 8 and up. If you whiz your way through the provided cards, you could take the game to a whole new level by designing your own puzzles (i.e. work backwards: set up the crosswords, then scramble and have your opponent unscramble).
