“See Spot Win” 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 randomly arranged board of lettered tiles. If you spot a word, cover the letter with your tokens. First player to get rid of all their tokens is the winner.
