I recently got to play a demo of this at a Convention in my area, and I purchased it the same day. This game is scrabble on steroids. The concept is a simple one, be the first to spell your way from one end of the board to the other, while stopping into three of four "check-point" locations. Spell a word with 5 letters or more? Use a rare letter in your word? Go again (you only get two extra moves a turn, so you can't "run" the board). As if that wasn't hard enough, there are random "hedges" placed throughout the board, preventing access to certain letters.
While this game is challenging for people of all ages and all intelligence levels, it's FUN for those same people in any combination. I have played with a 40-something and a twelve year old in the same game and everyone had fun. I highly recommend this as a great group game.
