Love word searches? Then try this super-duper colossal collection of 365 searches—a full year’s worth of mind-melting puzzles that will (as a bonus) improve your vocabulary, too. Every page has TWO word searches on it, each with a cool theme, like “File Extensions” and “Fountains” or “Jelly Beans” and “Letter Order.”
See how many “Movie Stars” (Damon, Diesel, Streep) catch your eye or fun “Onomatopoeia” words you can circle—boom, buzz, clang, click, gurgle, hiccup, honk. Experts who want something really challenging will find what they want here, too. “Conifer” includes such tree names as bristlecone, loblolly, and tamarack, while “Quantum Mechanics” offers bosons, fermions, and isobar. And for something a little unusual, there’s even a “Minnesota Zip Code” puzzle, where you look for groups of numbers. But the truly brain-busting ones come at the end of the book, when the puzzles veer from the standard to the really challenging, and some even have no word list at all. They’re hard, they’re tough . . . and they’re wildly entertaining!
Beware: Once you start solving these word searches, you won’t be able to stop! These searches are wildly entertaining, sometimes funny, and in a range of different levels to suit every solver. It’s the newest in the go!games series, and one that’s sure to be a hit.
Each puzzle features a cool theme, from “007” (agents, assassins, and Bond, James Bond) to “Authors” (Dickens, Faulkner, Fitzgerald, and Twain) and “Board Games” (Checkers, Chess, Parcheesi, and Yahtzee). Or choose “Bite Me,” “Elvis,” “Golf Courses,” and “Putting on the Brakes.” There are 188 word searches in all, and each one is so much fun you’ll want to keep on solving till you have done them all! And of course completed puzzles are there in the back.
