Product Description

Not just another interlocking word game, but a classic pastime in which four players create an actual crossword puzzle....

It's a riot! Players find words, make up original clues, and then - Pandemonium: the other players race to be the first to knock on the table to answer Quizzer's clue and place the word down for their side. The end result is a full crossword puzzle set in beautiful plastic tiles on a state-of-the-art crossword board.

Knock-on-Word is the invention of Joli Quentin Kansil, creator of Bridgette and 25 other games for adults. Formerly a top crossword constructor for the New York Times, he labored seven years to develop this game -- which he considers to be his finest.

No expense has been spared for this limited special edition which contains: 2-color duplex crossword grid, 220 lettered tiles in blue and red, 100 yellow "combo blocks," 60 black squares, and illustrated rules. All components are made of space-age Trovicel plastic.
