  • Materials: wood, lasercutter

In this dynamic word search game, shift rows and columns of letters to find and score words.
This lasercut wooden game is 6x6 inches square with 25 locations, 20 gates and 50 A-Z letter tiles.
It's a travel-friendly family game for all ages.
The larger version is 9x9 inches with 49 locations.

Goal:
Shift letters to make and find words in any direction.
In solitaire mode, try to beat your highest score shifting 25 letters.

Setup:
Randomly place 25 letter tiles onto the board. Place the remaining letters facedown in a draw pile.
Insert the 20 gates into the board. Designate a scorekeeper. Agree upon an end-of-game target score, for example 100 points.
Decide upon a minimum word length of either three or four letters.

Game Play:
On each turn, a player will:
• Pick up a tile from the draw pile
• Determine a starting location on the edge of the board
• Open a gate at the opposite end of that row or column
• Shift the letters one space in the direction of the open gate
• Discard the shifted tile
• Insert the new tile in the open space
• Locate the words that intersect with that row or column
• Score the words found.

I basically got these to bump up my order to get the free shipping, but I use these way more than I expected. They make perfect life counters for MTG. They are easy to use, compact and look really good.

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!

The pictures of this Memory Game are beautiful, but the cards themselves are very thin and some cards have a brownish edge on the backside, so one can remember which picture it is due to the stains.

Perfect shapes, perfect cutting lines, perfect everything. I'm thrilled to NOT have to get all fiddly with an X-acto knife (and my fingers thank me for that, too), and still have quality blank components to work with! Will be back for more, I'm certain!
