The challenge -- think of a word that uses the 3 clue letters in order, but arranged in the special way required by your color category (maybe all clue letters together, maybe the first letter first and last letter last, or one of the other variations).
Roll the die, move to your square, get a 3-letter clue that matches the square's color and think of a word that fits the color's category rule. be the first to complete all 7 categories and you've won.
There's risk, luck and strategy involved: you can be challenged, you can lose a turn or credit for a category, you can send someone back to start, you can zap or be zapped by another player. It all depends on the roll of the die, the clue cards and your way with words.
Lexogon is a unique word game. It gets your mind going as you try to come up with words containing certain letters in given arrangements. It works best if it's played by people of similar age and/or ability with words. It also works well for teams and as such would make a good party game. There isn't a lot of down time since all players have incentive to try each puzzle. Progress around the board introduces chance -- both with category to be played and with possible other actions. I think this game is best when played by 3 or more people (or teams.)
