Here's a monumental challenge for word fanatics. Randomly allocate 36 black (neutral) pyramids to the 10x10 board's central (lettered) spaces. Thirty pyramids in each of four player colors begin in random stacks of five on the spaces flanking the center. Each pyramid represents one numbered letter, shown on all sides.

Each turn, shift any number of colored pyramids visible at the start of your turn to vacant spaces or atop other pyramids, to form one word in crossword fashion from your viewpoint. Remove and score all pyramids used. Printed letters (non-scoring) revealed by the earlier removal of black pyramids may help form words.

Play ends when the last pyramid of any player color has been removed. The player with the highest score wins--after everyone painfully deducts the total value of their unused pyramids. We have no cross words about either this remarkable game or its classy components!
