Sixty-four double-sided wood tiles make every game a brand new set-up. Keesdrow Deluxe (“word seek” spelled backwards) is the Ultimate Word Seek Game! Compete for high score by identifying words within a maze of letters, and score points based on the letters you use. Adjoining letters may be up, down, left, right or diagonal. The letters must be joined in sequence, and may be used more than once within the same word. Letters have varying point values and may be used a maximum of three times during the game. The first time a letter is used, it counts as a single point value, and a green peg is inserted in the hole of the letter. Use a letter a second time and replace the green peg with a yellow peg for double the value. Use it a third and final time and replace the yellow peg with a red peg for triple the value. There are two primary strategies – Build on other player’s words, using their letters for the second and third time to score extra points OR spell words with multiples of the same letter, such as “bubble” and score extra points. The game ends after either playing a set number of rounds after which high score wins, or play to a pre-determined point value. Play time 30-60 minutes.
