Mind-Stretching Word Search


Formats & editions


115 puzzles ranging from simple searches to serious and complex problems offer novice and seasoned word-searchers a variety of challenges. How quick and sharp is your eye? John Samson's newest collection will reveal the truth. Each entertaining puzzle has a theme, ranging from "U.S. Constitution Signers" to "Constellations" to "One-Named Celebrities." The puzzles get progressively harder as you work your way through them and you are expected to find extra words in the searches that don't appear on the word list. Smart fun and a wonderful way to exercise the brain.
