Lexogon is a challenging, fast-paced word game where you think about words in a great new way. It stretches your brain, memory and mettle. It stimulates your vocabulary, your word recognition skills and your creativity! Think of a word that uses 3 clue letters in order, but arranged in the special way required by your Category Rule. There are seven different categories to solve. Be the first to come up with words for all seven categories and you've won. But there's risk, luck and strategy involved: you can be challenged, you can lose a turn or credit for a category, and it all depends on the roll of the die, the clues and YOUR way with words! Players of differing vocabulary skills can play together since there is an intermediate deck of clues and a standard deck for a college level vocabulary. For 2 to 6 players/teams. Adults and Teens.

To put it simply, Lexagon is FUN!!!! It is the perfect combination of spelling skills, luck of the draw and strategy. My family does not like playing word games (Scrabble, Take Four) with me because I ALWAYS beat them and every one else who goes up against me. They thought for sure I was going to take them down in Lexagon. However, with the luck of the draw and strategy elements of this game, my teen-aged daughter "whooped" me. She was so excited when she won that she insisted we play all over again.
The rules to this game are very easy to follow. There are two sets of skill level cards in Lexagon, so if there's a player whose spelling or word knowledge isn't quite advanced, then he/she can use the easier cards. We tried the easy cards first and had to switch 15 minutes into the game because they were TOO easy.
Lexagon comes with a "cheat" book, providing some answers to the clues. The game board and accessories are high quality, though we found it easier to use our own timer that beeps rather than the two (2)old-fashioned sand timers that were provided.
Lastly, we have always used games to help our children enchance their spelling and math skills. There were a few words my husband and I used as answers in Lexagon that my daughter didn't know, so she went and looked them up on her own. Lexagon is one of those games that provides a lot of entertainment, but can also be used as a learning tool that the kids will love.
We DEFINITELY recommend Lexagon to all game lovers out there!
As the other reviews stated, it's an easy game to learn. You're up and running in no time. More than that, it's a lot more fun than I thought a word game would be. The rules about how you choose your words make it a lot of fun, and really equalize different vocab levels.
I would think Lexogon could be played and enjoyed by anyone reading age and up. You end up exposing yourself to a lot of words, and it affects the way you think about the language. Most importantly, of course, it makes for a good time. We've played in groups of 3 and up to groups of 9 or 10. There is a great energy surrounding the game and people whisper and then yell and get into the competition.
I recommend it!
The only drawback to playing this game is that I realized how terrible my vocabulary is! I figure a few months of playing this game will help.
