Do you like word games? Then you'll love Up For Grabs. Because it's fast paced, exciting, and educational all at the same time.

You've got to think fast. Because you have to grab the letters you want off the rotating cube before anyone else does. And then place them in your playing area and build words- as quick as you can!

But not so fast that you don't plan ahead. Because those gray squares are double letter scores. And letters that don't make words count against you.

Up to 4 people can play. Or you can play alone, against the computer. So develop your skill and quick wits. And have a great time playing Up For Grabs.

Ken Madell, author of Up For Grabs, is a computer graphic artist and a musician who develops computer learning games for home and school.

Educational value: Up For Grabs helps exercise spelling and vocabulary skills while teaching you to visualize words and arrange them spatially. It also sharpens your ability to plan strategies and make quick decisions.
