Growing Word-Smart Kids
Build word power, spelling skills, grammar and punctuation know-how with Words Rock! Literacy comes alive in this new compelling computer board game. Words Rock! covers ages 4-15 and beyond and can be used by up to 4 people of any age and stage at any one time.

Each player is one of a bunch of street-smart Freak Seekers on the trail of the devious, invisible, slippery Super Slugs in this bounty-hunting free-for-all. Players use Slug-finding tricks and cool gadgets to outsmart the other Seekers.
