Customer Reviews


this is just a fun game, adding a little happy to your day--simple and fun, no frills, a sweet relief from a stress-filled world.

A good word game, usually

I enjoy word games and enjoy this quite a lot. Sometimes the associations they come up with are tenuous at best and downright silly at their worst. Still, it is enjoyable and I learn lots of new words and names.

Another fun one!

Fun vocabulary builder. Great to play on your own or with the family.
