This month the Mosaic Review Team Members received a new game to use and offer our opinions on. Typecrush is a unique game that quickly had us all reaching for the dictionary and note pads.
We recently received the game Typecrush for our family game night.
Typecrush™ is a word game based on letter frequency analysis—how frequently letters appear in the English language. It’s kind of like a color-coded hangman, but way more entertaining and educational. Best for players age seven and older, Typecrush is as simple or challenging as your imagination decides.
Personally I loved the easy packaging the game was contained in; instead of missing puzzle pieces or dice, all the colored discs fit right in the tube container with the rules and the lid, all together. For my family, we found choosing a theme for each round was the ticket! One round was food, another was states, and for the youngest crew we guessed color names. While the rules suggest seven and older, by using hints and partnering of older siblings, the whole family was able to enjoy the word game.
The game requires very little set up or clean up, no little pieces to lose (or step on later), and it travels well. We are already looking forward to taking it with us on our next family vacation!
All in all, this game was great for all ages and is educational as well as a bunch of fun.
