Pathwords is not for the faint of heart when it comes to word games. Place one of the game cards on the square play grid.  The game also comes with differently colored translucent pieces that will sit on the game surface and allow you to "identify" words on the board.  Each game card tells you which colored pieces you may use.  Our testers tried some of the "easy" cards first - they were pretty challenging...but they then decided to skip on to the more advanced cards and found them super hard to do.  All testers agreed that they loved the feel of the game pieces and that it felt pleasingly unique from many other word games, but everyone agreed that you would need to be a very strong word-y to be successful with Pathwords. Funny, even when we tried to say, ok...let's go on to the next game- our testers wanted more time to try it again! Marked 8 & up, but we'd say this is really for older players or as a parent/child game. Even then, we think parents may end up taking over the game!
