Description Edit | History

A fast-paced word game for two players. The game consists of wooden letter tiles, each with four letters (the Discovery Edition contains 28 tiles and the Wooden Box edition has 32 tiles). The board starts with 16 tiles and more are added during the game. On a turn, players find words (at least three letters long) on the board. Words can be situated vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. When a player finds a word, they use transparent tokens to highlight the letters in the word.

Over the course of the game, the board expands beyond the inital 4 x 4 layout, as players earn new letter tiles and add them to the wordsearch field. The first player to use up all of their tokens wins.

More Information Edit | History

The two different versions have slightly different sets of letter tiles. The Wooden Box "Bookshelf" edition has 32 tiles, while the Discovery edition has 28. Twenty-five of the tiles appear in both sets, and there are a total of 35 distinct tiles between the two sets.

The Bookshelf edition appears to have some tougher letters, like W, X, Z, that the Discovery version does not have. Also, the font used for the Bookshelf edition is much larger than the one used for the Discovery edition, which may make it easier for some players to see during play.
