From the Manufacturer

PathWords is the exciting new game that combines the best of Tetris and Word Search. Place the puzzle pieces onto the selected challenge so the letters under each piece spell a word. Words are read forward or backward - letters will not be scrambled. With 40 challenges from Beginner to Expert, PathWords appeals to both word game lovers and puzzle fanatics and will have you exercising your brain for hours.

Customer Reviews

The easier challenges are fun and make it easy to learn the game quickly while the harder challenges are very challenging.

We loved the way you can challenge yourself at different levels, and as parents, it's so satisfying to see your children playing a game that engages their brain.
Sarah E. Pekkanen
The plastic case with sliding lid has a dimpled surface for the contoured pieces to fit into, and the transparent colors are a visual treat.

Pathwords by ThinkFun is a search a word game combined with a strategy game. It comes with a 40 page puzzle book and several colored Tetris-like pieces. The puzzles range from beginner to expert. It also comes with a plastic storage container that doubles as a word-search grid. Each card tells you what pieces you will need to finish the puzzle. To play, you cover the words with the appropriate shape. You win if you cover the entire grid. Words can be either backwards or forwards, but not scrambled. That's probably not too clear, but this video of my daughter playing Pathwords should explain it better.

This is a brief video of my 13 year old daughter playing the game. ThinkFun PathWords

While it's not developed exclusively for people with autism, ThinkFun has partnered with Asperkids and Pathwords is part of the Asperkids Collection. The founder for Asperkids helped put together this collection to support learners of different strategies. While this game is an awesome game for people with autism, it is also a wonderful game for Neurotypical children (like my daughter).

If you have a child with autism (like my son), you know that it's sometimes hard to play any games with them at all. It forces social interaction that they may quickly frustrate them. Pathwords is a single player game. For the child with autism, it means they are not backed into a situation where they are letting someone down if they get frustrated with playing. For a normally developing child, it can teach them to entertain themselves. We can't always have someone there to entertain us and learning to keep yourself occupied is an important skill.

I am so thrilled with this new word game from the Think Fun Company! I have loved all of their previous games and include them in my classroom for all of my students to use.
The game is a new take on find a words and uses colored tiles to help the player spell out the word. I myself was stumped on some of the higher level cards and needed a few hints, but still thought the game was a ton of fun!
My students are using it during our indoor recess time and are enjoying the different leveled challenges.
If you are a word lover then I strongly suggest you get this game. Another home run for the Think Fun Company!!!

I love games that combine seemingly disparate elements in surprising ways. Pathwords is a perfect example of this: cover each board with the colored tiles, so that each piece covers a word. Super simple in concept, and beautifully designed levels make this game irresistible! If you're into word games, the spatial challenges will give you a run for your money. Occasionally, there are words used within the game that might be a bit obscure for some, so keep a dictionary at hand just in case you find yourself asking "Is that a word?"

All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable, challenging, and engaging game for anyone! Highly recommended!

My family loves word puzzles; Scrabble, Banagrams, etc. But we were looking for a new word game that was challenging, but also one that the whole family could play. Path Words is phenomenal in that everyone (we have a 12 year old, 15 year old and two 40 year olds) is able to play and the kids see words that we don't necessarily see, which they love! I would highly recommend this game to anyone who loves words, puzzles, or just plain fun!

When I got Pathwords, I hoped that it would be something my whole family would enjoy, but I wasn't sure. It's getting harder to interest my 12 and 14 year-olds in playing board games instead of on the computer. I have been pleasantly surprised by how much fun we are all having with it. There is something very addictive about moving the puzzle pieces over the letters and finding words. Although it is basically a single player game, we have been working on the harder puzzles together. Since we got it, it has been on the breakfast bar and whenever any of us have a few minutes, we start moving the tiles around. I was afraid that we would finish all 40 puzzles quickly, but they are becoming progressively more challenging and taking longer. However, it would be nice if the makers came out with additional puzzle booklets that could be purchased to use with the set.

I am an ESL teacher in an elementary school, and I originally thought that I might be able to use this with my students. The age recommendation on the box is accurate, and it wouldn't have worked in my classroom. I would love to see Thinkfun adapt this game to a younger audience. However, this version has been great for my kids. Although the words are not long, there have been some obscure ones that my 12 and 14 year-olds haven't known, so it has definitely expanded their vocabularies.

I have a shelf full of ThinkFun games in my 9th grade classroom, and my students can't get enough! PathWords is a great word game that my students and my family love to play. While you can play alone, it's fun to play as a group as well. I love hearing my students work through the puzzles as a small team, find the words, and work through the tricks and turns they encounter. It covers all the bases from word recognition to spatial reasoning to group problem-solving. As with all ThinkFun games, the challenges build the difficulty from card to card and get pretty darn tough by the end!
