Ok, I'm going to write this review, close all programs and go and play in TRAFFIC!!!! It's not like I can't feel stupid enough on my own-I have to try a diablolical game like this!! 

Oh sure, the first thing you see in the help file is how this game can be used for improving spelling or helping to learn a foreign language, [and Queequeq supports English, German, Spanish, and French] which of course means that this would be a GREAT game for the kids. But there is a button, that allows you to ask the computer....I feel so stupid.....It's driving me nuts! All right, who said that's a short drive..who...you-in the back row-you get to play this game for an hour in whatever language you don't know! [I know, I know, I've said before, it's a short drive to driving me nuts, but my feelings are bruised right now after trying this game, so we all have to be nice to me now....you know how I get! 

Great game, wonderful game. get it for the kids and then stay away from it! I mean, it wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't challenging enough to get that just-one-more-game reaction. On the other hand, you could read the above and realize that the author succeeded-beyond his wildest dreams! 

What is it? Oh, sorry I was so busy ranting I forgot to tell you what the game was You get 9 spaces, first you choose letter, [actually you just pick 'c' and 'v' and the pc throws whatever it wants at you] then you must assemble, from all the garbage you got, the longest word possible. By dragging you can move the 9 letters around, at that point all you need is a brain. [HEY....no singing back there I don't want to hear ANY songs from The Wizard of Oz!] Then after you argue with the pc about whether your word is in the dictionary, you can ask the "wizard" and then you can join me....I'll be out playing on the freeway, ok?

Oh, I forgot, if you register the game, you can get even more word lists. and all of youse guys quit giggling at me!
