FOURWORD THINKERS (FORWARD THINKERS) WORD GAME
A simple strategic game of grabbing letters and making secret words – four-letter words to be exact. For 2-6 players, ages 5+.
• 26 A-Z letter tiles
• 26 A-Z letter cards
• Optional score trackers.
Details at http://fourwordthinkers.com
Goal: Using a combination of eight letters on four cards and four tiles, attempt to make one or two four-letter secret words.
Grabbing in Rounds: Play in rounds - each round comprises four “grabs”, where players strategically grab a single letter tile. At the end of exactly four rounds, players reveal the word(s) they made.
Setup: At the start of each round, randomly scatter all the letter tiles face up between the players. Shuffle the cards and place face down in a draw pile. Designate a scorekeeper and a target end-of-game score eg, 100.
Game Play: Each player picks up a single letter tile and a secret letter card. The tile remains face up, while the card is held in secret. Go around four times until each player has four tiles and four letters.
Less letters – more challenging: Since each round depletes letter tiles, you will constantly have to think ahead to plan your words.

I thought this would be great (fairly easy) for my 93 year old, bedridden mom and tried it upon arrival, after a few hours I had to look up a hint to get started so these are serious puzzles for serious puzzlers(IMHO). I should've ordered the magnetic variety to avoid pieces getting lost in the bedding when they get knocked off the bed tray table. The way the puzzles are made appeals to the senses, they feel good and they sound good- no plastics clicking together kind of thing and look good. I'm ordering the symbols one next.
This is my new favorite puzzle, so much fun to do!! It is clearly handmade, with beautiful colors, and clever cutting, including hints. The five layers added a wonderful level of challenge. It is so much better than I thought it would be. Mark is wonderful at communicating as well, and even offered me a couple of extra choices. I highly recommend this!
Thought the puzzle came with the design on it that just needed to be coloured. Only blank pieces received. Had to draw the pattern on it myself after I put it together, then coloured it. Picture should show blank pieces.
We love this game very much. We are homeschoolers and it's so helpful with vocabulary building, logic and imagination. It was delivered very fast and the seller was very nice. Thank you so much 😊
