Players listen to three definitions, then try to guess the three words to make a Word Sweep.
From the Manufacturer
Word Sweep is the award-winning game where players try to identify three consecutive words from a Merriam-Webster dictionary. To play, one player reads a card containing the definitions of three words which appear consecutively in a Merriam-Webster dictionary. Another player tries to guess all three words to make a word sweep. If the word sweep isn't solved completely, opponents can steal the remaining words. Correct guesses advance players around the board to win. The game features over 2,300 Merriam-Webster's definitions in three difficulty levels. It is for two to four players or teams. The game includes junior rules so it's perfect for either family or adult-only play.

When the timer expires, the person or team gives the three words. He/they move one space on the board for each correct word. Other players/teams, in turn, get a shot at any missed words. You only hear how many words you got right - you don't hear which words are right. You have to figure that out, and you must give the EXACT WORD on the card. The wrong tense or form, like adding ING if it's not on the card, makes it wrong.
There are three boxes of words to choose from:
PURPLE - Everyday - easy
GREEN - Intermediate - medium
RED - Challenging - hard
If you get all three words correct, you must pick the next difficult level on your next turn, unless it's the red box. You don't have to pick the red box again, since that's the most difficult. Getting all three in the green box moves you four spaces on the board. Getting all three in the red box moves you five spaces, one and two bonus spaces, respectively.
First player or team to get to the Finish wins. Overall a good and challenging game that could help you improve your vocabulary.
We had a good time playing the game, but it's not one that we would pull out of the cabinet first.
