This book is educational, presenting forty-two word problems in the form of games. Players are challenged to build words from parts called "splinters." They examine parts provided for beginnings, middles, and ends of words and build as many words as they can from the parts supplied in each of the three categories. Players are graded upon how successful they are in building as many words as the game creators claim are possible for each of the games.
