Product Description

This tongue-tying title is really a crazy crossword race! Fast-paced and easy to learn, it's family fun for up to a dozen players (how many games can say that?). Here's how it works: the tiles are placed face down, and each player draws nine. Then they use their tiles to build their own individual crossword puzzles, expanding and rearranging their puzzles as additional tiles are drawn. Out of tiles? Yell Draw! and everyone draws another. The first to use up their tiles stops the action, but only those with all their words spelled correctly can win the game. Instructions for several different variations (including a solitaire version) are included. For 1 to 12 players.

Great game for the whole family.

I like this game very much because everyone works on their own grid and can change words as they go along.

This is a great game for all ages, but it really helps if you're old enough to have a decent vocabulary at hand. Someone commented that the box was not a useful way to carry the game and I agree, which is why we transferred it all to a cloth bag (such as the kind that comes with Crown Royal). What I like about the game is that any number of players can play, although I can't imagine trying it with as low as two players but I suppose that you could. Each player starts with 9 tiles, face down. When everyone agrees, the players flip over their tiles and begin forming words as if they had their own Scrabble board in front of them. (TIP: plan for enough space so that you don't lay tiles down such that you may run out of room as you near the edge of the table you are playing on.)

The words you form should be valid English words, and not foreign words or proper nouns. Now, depending on your audience, you can tailor the rules to suit your needs. The words all must be connecting as they do in Scrabble. Whomever uses up their tiles yells "draw" and *all* players must draw a tile. This is where it becomes a game of speed. However, you can continually re-arrange your tiles to make room for new tiles. There's a generous serving of tiles, but they include quite a few of the more-challenging letters to use such as J, V, Z, and Q. There's also a good number of wild card tiles which help when you don't have the letter you are looking for. (TIP: As you get a tile that represents a wild card you were using, quickly substitute the wild card with the actual letter so that you free up the wild card. If you draw a wild card and have no idea where to play it, you can always look for a word that you can pluralize and make it an 's' at the end of the word.

I had heard about this game from a friend, and after playing it only a few times, was hooked and wanted to have it at my own place. It's a great game to play with lots of people, and you also learn about different words through other players and their own creations through the game. It was a great buy.

I was hesitant to play this game initially because I am such a poor Scrabble player and had decided I didn't like word games. The rest of my family enjoys word games, though, so I'd usually opt to sit out when they play Scrabble.

My son was given Syzygy as a gift (from grandparents who love it so much it stays right by their kitchen table for frequent play!) After much prodding, I joined in for a game. Much to my surprise, I really enjoyed it! So much so, that now I want to give it as gifts to others!

The faster pace of the game does not make it more difficult. If anything, it makes it easier and more fun! Each person starts with 12 letter tiles. Using those 12 tiles, you build words crossword style in front of you. (Each person is working on their own "crossword.") Whenever someone uses all the tiles in front of them they call out "Draw," and everyone must draw 3 more tiles and encorporate those into their "crossword." Play continues until all tiles are used. The first one to use up all the tiles "wins."

The wonderful part is that you can change the configuration of your words at any time. When 3 more letters are added (when someone calls, "Draw,") it is often a relief as you have more letters to work with! Being able to make 2-letter words is a huge help, especially for those like me with poorer vocabularly. But the great thing is, it is so educational and definately a vocabulary builder! I love being able to competently play (since I can make a bunch of smaller words) while learning so many new words at the same time (by looking at what others are doing and consulting the dictionary when I get stuck, which is fine to do). I was thrilled to be able to be the one to call out "Draw," several times! Wow! Me?

I'm not a real big word game person so when I was asked by one of my Co-workers to play I was pretty iffy about it. After a few games I was hooked so I had to get my own. My spelling has gotten better. It's funny I find myself throughout the day seeing words that I think, "Wow! That's a great word that can be used." or, "Holy cow that uses a lot of different letters." or, "That's a word I didn't know that. Cool!" So in short as far as I'm concerned Syszygy, great game, great learning tool, & you can even play by yourself.

This is a great game & teaching tool! I love watching the 12 year old competing against me & his 22 year old brother- and sometimes winning! We always take time for everyone to read thru their puzzle-it helps us to widen our vocabulary!
