  • Handmade
  • 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.

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

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 love it! It's for my wedding guestbook. The guests will sign around our picture. Mark got back to me right away when I had questions. He worked with me on the changes I had. Great experience. It's exactly what I envisioned and more. Thanks Mark! Dawn

These were a gift for a pair of scrabble-fanatics. The concept is brilliant and they love incorporating these into their games here and there. Mark was so great at answering my questions and double checking my order before it shipped.

My family had a great time with our meandering puzzle. It was a lot of fun to put together. We chose a photo of my wedding, so it's a great memory as well.

The puzzle is lovely and very sturdy! Mark is very communicative and considerate! He answered every question I had very quickly and patiently, and it's clear that he cares about his products and customers!
