WORDSY (Formal Ferret Games, 1 to 6 players, ages 10 and up, 20 minutes; $20)
There is a whole corner in the World of Games reserved exclusively for word games. Of course, that section is dominated by titles that a lot of people have tucked away in their closets: Scrabble and Boggle. These word games have risen to the level of “staples” and, as a result, it’s hard for a new entry in that group to get itself heard. Fortunately, game designers take that as a challenge and rise to the occasion. In this game, designer Gil Hova challenges the “big boys” with his word game: Wordsy.
