It’s Mommy Monday, but today is a special day because we’re not only highlighting the work of a fabulous mom but a mom and dad team.  Together, as a team, Mike and his wife Aubrey  created TYPECRUSH with family and friends in mind.  These parents of twin 2 1/2 year olds have definitely unwrapped an amazing new game this holiday season that will keep families playing for years to come.  I had the opportunity to meet the duo at the Momtrends holiday event and they had me playing right away.  I enjoyed speaking with them about family, being parents and of course about their new game.  I’m all for a game that’s centered around the family and created by a family.  Now, that’s SO Family!

This is a unique game that will have wordies popping the can open for challenging fun over and over, friends laughing and thinking all night and families bringing the good old game-night back into play.  Oh, and I can’t forget one very unique quality that stands out about this game, the product is made in the USA out of 100% recycled materials and uses non-toxic ink.  Green families this will definitely keep you smiling while you put your creative caps on for some fun.

I’m a teacher, but also a gal that comes from a family of word game players.  There’s a few super word-gamers in my family, my mother being one.  I can’t wait to get to South Carolina this Christmas to play my always competitive brother and mother in a game of TYPECRUSH.  My parent’s good old dining room table will be filled with the Typecrush  letterpressed circular letters.

So, here’s how it’s played, from the website:

Typecrush™ is a word game based on letter frequency analysis. Best for players age seven and older, Typecrush is as simple or challenging as your imagination decides.

Typecrush segments the alphabet into five color-coded groups. The top group, ETAON contains the letters most frequently used, followed by RISHD, LFCMU, GYPWB, and VKXJQZ. Typecrush gives you four of each letter except VKXJQZ which has three of each—making virtually every word in the English language playable.

There’s only one rule in Typecrush—whoever solves the word first gets to choose the next word. That’s it. If you’d like more rules—you’re free to make up your own. Typecrush is about communication and connection more than keeping score, so feel free to give a hint or turn over a letter if a player asks. We recommend playing themes like US states, types of animals, celebrity names and more. The options are endless. Follow us at @Typecrush for more theme ideas.
