Thousand Oaks, California (PRWEB) December 20, 2005
Recently seen in the Chicago Tribune annual review of "20 Cool Board Games You Might Not Know About", Anagramania has also won 10 major awards from various child and parenting focused organizations, all of which are listed on the company's website http://Anagramania.com.
The game is about solving anagram clues, and it's so unique that it has a patent pending. An anagram is where you take the letters of one or more words and shuffle them around into another word or phrase. What's intriguing about Anagramania is that the source word or words are embedded in the clue itself! Take for example the sentence "A detective loves to find the answer to a mystery". The correct answer to this clue is 'solve', because it's both an anagram of the highlighted keyword 'loves' and it also means 'to find the answer.'
Not only will players enrich their vocabulary and their powers of deductive reasoning while playing this highly acclaimed game, they'll have lots of fun doing so! Participants race each other and the clock to be first to the center of the game board. Anagramania combines some of the best aspects of Scrabble and Trivial Pursuit in the arena of excitement and mental agility. The Junior Edition is especially valuable for children, because they don't realize they're learning new words and language skills as they play.
How much fun is the game? The folks at Family Review Center, a well recognized leader in the area of product reviews (http://www.familyreview.org), had this to say: "If you are tired of the same old same old, in game play - try Anagramania! It is a great new way to have fun as a family or as a group of friends. Not many games have I found to be as enriching, engaging and captivating as I have this one. Anagramania is a true blast!"
The game has grown so much in popularity since its introduction in the U.S. it is now being sold in Canada, Great Britain and Australia, too. It is rapidly becoming a favorite among people who enjoy crossword puzzles and word games, and it’s particularly valuable for home schooled kids, educators and for plain old family fun!
Anagramania is a great addition for the holiday season, with so many families spending time together at this time of year. It's a terrific way to have fun and learn something new at the same time.
The game makes a great holiday gift, and is available at many specialty retailers. It can also be purchased at numerous online toy and game locations, including the company's own website http://Anagramania.com
