For anyone who likes word games, you'll like this. There is a grid, that comes in 3 sizes, and it is filled with letters. you have to make words from letters that touch with 3 or more letters in them, and of course the larger the word, the better the score. When you make a word the letters are removed. The harder letters are colored, if you use them you get extra points.

You can either play the regular game, with 3 difficulty levels, or you can play AckAttack. This is where letters keep dropping onto the grid, and when the line gets filled without you pulling letters the game is over.

There are options to customize the game, such as language, one or two players, and much more.

This is a good game for the whole family, and it just might help the kids learn to spell better.
