The task

In this language game, a table with sixteen boxes appears and each box contains a letter of the alphabet. Your client must find the word hidden within the scrambled arrangement of letters. You may choose seven, eight, or nine-letter words for your client to find. This is a deceptively challenging game. Context clues are provided for assistance.


What It Trains

The areas of the brain at work are the occipital lobe for processing incoming visual information and the left temporal lobe for language, verbal memory, and information retrieval with its connections to the hippocampus. To succeed at this task, your client will need to combine visual scanning and semantic memory to recognize the word. Many people process most language information using the left side of their brain.


You can modify the number of words to be found (1 to 5), the size of the grid (3×3, 4×4 or 5×5) the number of letters (5 to 9), whether consecutive letters can occur diagonally, allowance of help (first 3 letters, first 2 letters, first letter or none), and if the category of the word is to be presented.
