A new type of word puzzle - YOTTSUGO leaves the challenge level up to you!

YOTTSUGO contains everything you've ever wanted in a puzzling word game.

A genius vocabulary isn’t needed to play. All the word solutions in the 40 puzzles are words you might use on a daily basis. For folks in ball hats and intellectuals grounded in academia - YOTTSUGO is more fun than you can shake a stick at.

Tiles in view and Clue Books nearby should you need them, use 16 letter tiles to create eight words that fit together both vertically and horizontally. Take a peek at a clue if you'd like - or give it a go cold. Maybe you'll warm up to the solution quick and every tile will fit. Or, maybe not...

At an impasse, a standstill - a no-way-out woeful dead end? You may decide to open the nifty flap to reveal Clue #1. Oh sweetness. The clue just saved your bacon. Now you're cooking again!

Think, rearrange the tiles again, think some more. Nothing. Still Nothing. More Nothing. Snatch yourself from the jaws of impossibility and open the second nifty flap for Clue #2! Three nifty flaps can be opened for a new clue whenever your mind shouts out for mercy.

No accidentally seeing a solution until you're ready - this word game allows you to push the limits of your stamina and word wizardry!

If you’re a word lover, or not so much, either way - you’re in for a delightful surprise.

  • A puzzle challenge for people who enjoy testing their limits
  • Using letter tiles, a clue book, and logic - find the word solutions
  • Encourages language skills, reasoning skills & logic, fun interaction

    I was looking for a challenge
    Posted 6/29/2013 by Anne

    I bought this for myself. I've been working word puzzles (searches and crosswords) to keep me thinking and was looking for something more. Yottsugo takes crosswords to a new level - I have to figure out all the words. I pack up a puzzle into a sandwich bag and work on them during my lunch break. The puzzles are great for a group - I've given up discouraging my co-workers from helping. I'm buying a second game for the grandkids for their game night. Good "toy" for individual play and for a group I should add I'm 60+ and buy from Fat Brain Toys for myself as much as I buy for my grandkids.

    Name of the Game is PERSISTENCE
    Posted 6/24/2013 by kathy v.

    Love it! This game has two "settings": 4 word puzzles and 8 word puzzles. For the 4 word puzzles, the solutions came very readily. Some I solved in less time than it took to choose out the tiles. But the 8 word puzzles are the challenge. They can take days to solve. The hints can help but I try to solve it without them because why buy the game if you aren't going to let it challenge you? It has given me new respect for the people who design crossword puzzles and have to weave horizontal and vertical words together. This is a good game for people who don't give up when faced with a tough challenge.
