About the Pathwords Jr.

As any aficionado of crossword puzzles knows, there are some words that pop up in puzzles that are nearly never used in normal conversation, like “apse” (a semicircular church recess), “alee” (a seaman’s term), and “ewer” (a decorative pitcher). Those versed in the form call these words “crosswordese,” and memorizing the common ones will help you get through puzzles fast.


Doing crosswords is also a good way to learn more common words, and Pathwords Jr., from ThinkFun, is a variation on the standard word puzzle that makes it fun! Pathwords Jr. combines elements of a word search, a crossword, and a jigsaw puzzle: to play, kids find the specified words and lay Tetris-style puzzle pieces over them to solve the puzzle. Beginner Pathwords Jr. puzzles tell the player which words to find; harder ones use graphic hints and amusing wordplay as clues to help players find the right words.


ThinkFun Pathwords Jr. is a great way to get your kid hooked on word puzzles and logic games while improving his reading and spelling, and while it’s designed as a single-player game, many reviewers say that their kids enjoy puzzling away together. And the limited number of Pathwords pieces and the stable structure of the game board make this a great activity to keep the kids busy on long car trips. Includes the game grid with storage for the 6 colored puzzle pieces, and a spiral-bound challenge book with 40 challenges from beginner to expert; for ages 6 and up.


WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.
