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.

I love the game design! Fitting all the way in the tube with instructions…Thank you!! I hate missing pieces, and I hate huge boxes! I love that this is compact and small. And the game sounds like fun too! lol.

I think it’s important that the younger members could participate with the aide of older siblings. Type Crush looks like a fun and educational game!

Diana Ward says
Little set up or clean up is a winner with this Gramma, and the fact that it is a word game means that I can use it in my 8 year old’s home schooling. A winner all around, I will have to buy a set.

This game looks so fun the kids and I would have a great time playing! Thanks for the review.
We have had a blast with this game. It is funny when the little ones play and they pick really simple words… the adults have a hard time figuring them out! LOL… oh and when they spell it like it sounds…the preschoolers can win the game!

I am always looking for fun word games to play with my son, He has dyslexia and we have to practice words a lot!
