Description from the packaging.

The Letter-Connection Challenge that makes you pick up where you leave off!

Link together adjacent letters as you race against the clock to create the longest words!

How do you spell challenge and excitement? With Pathwords, of course! It's a word-building game where speed and strategy are as important as word knowledge. Letters are arranged randomly in a 109-character grid. Race against the clock as you link adjacent letters to create the longest word you can. Be sure to make the last letter a tough one- your opponent has to begin where you left off!


  • Characters are randomly generated. You get a new grid every time!
  • Play at your own pace, or set the timer to one of three speed settings.
  • Completed words and score totals are automatically tallied.
  • Designed for 1 to 4 players.
