Word Spot: A Letterpress Game

I saw this game at Barnes and Noble last night. Looks like a great gift for the Letterpress lover in your life.

Letterpress craftsmen of centuries past used to hide words within a block of text as a challenge to their peers. They called this past time vedere parola.

To celebrate this rich tradition Front Porch Classics has created WordSpot, a timeless game where players try to find hidden words among an arranged board of lettered tiles. The first player to use up all their markers finding words is the winner!

Easy to learn, yet challenging and different every time.

For ages 8 and up.
