|smithhemb||8|| || || This is a scrabble like game that is more parallel play than interactive. Each player is racing to fill in as much as possible of a pre-set crossword grid (which not only designates word length but establishes the order in which you need to fill in various rows/columns).
Three features make this a good game for wordgame lovers of mixed ages/abilities. The first is that there is a choice among 4 different crossword puzzles of different difficulties, so it's easily handicapped. The second is that each puzzle lasts only 3 minutes -- that limits frustration and makes the game length very customizable. Finally, because you have control over your own puzzle, there's no waiting for your turn, or setting up opportunities that someone else takes, or being second-guessed by other players.
As an adult, I find it an interesting change of pace from other word games because it puts you in situations where you find yourself thinking about which letters a likely to occur in the middle of various length words. I guess you might say that it forces you to look at words like a crossword puzzle designer might -- which is not how an ordinary user of language typically groups words.
