Don't be fooled— Stratajong is deceptively easy to play, but difficult to master. Combining the elegant strategy of chess or Go with fast-paced game play, it will keep you thinking several moves ahead. All you need to do is capture your opponent's castle, which sounds simple enough, but did we mention the pawns, keys, rockets, and more that you'll need to contend with along the way? Play against a computer opponent or a friend, customize board size and game time, and enjoy an addictive game of strategy that's sure to become a classic.
You may think you're smart—but are you any match for Teazle 2, the mind-bending strategy game that's 76 games in 1? Compete against the computer, players in the same room, or those a world away. Choose from a constantly changing board of mini-games: strategy games, action games, logic puzzles, and more. There's something for everyone. But play fast—you're racing to complete five in a row before your opponents do! So while you may be smart, what if your opponents are smarter?
Super Word Challenge is the ultimate product for anyone who likes word games, puzzles, or mental exercises. You'll start with Word Whiz, the computer version of an incredibly popular game. (I can't tell you the popular name because a big company owns the trademark, but chances are you can figure out what it is.) On a grid of 5 x 5 letters, the object is to make as many words as possible by connecting four or more adjacent letters—the longer the word, the more points you get. The next game, Hunt-a-Word, is the ultimate word search game. It is truly infinitely playable and is based on the included 28,000-word dictionary. Next, test your skill at the Word Jumble, where you'll have the dual challenge of unscrambling seven-letter words and simultaneously finding up to 16 different words in each set of seven letters. How fast can you do that? Finally, there's the modern twist on the classic game Hangman. With cute graphics, challenging words, and of course a race against the clock, this game is surprisingly fast-paced and entertaining.
Kakuro is the next great phenomenon that's making its way across the nation. Anyone who likes Crosswords, Sudoku, or any mental challenge will love this game. Kakuro takes the number strategy of Sudoku and puts it on a crossword-like puzzle grid. The object of the puzzle is to fill in the squares using the numbers 1 to 9, making sure they add up to the number attached to that row, and without repeating a number. Possible number combinations are given for each row. Some squares contain "clues" telling you the sum of the numbers in each column. You can time yourself, check your answers, and if you're stuck, use the hint function to get back on track. Puzzles can be saved or paused to return to later. This game has four grid sizes, three levels of difficulty, and 25,000 puzzles for endless challenging fun.
