LexVenture is a game that mixes elements from board crosswords games like Scrabble and Upwords. Fans of Viqua Games' Thomas and the Magical Words will be pleased to know that LexVenture can be tested for another three weeks before it goes on sale.

An application form has to be completed to access the download page, although no email confirmation will be sent to verify the information provided. One for the kids.

I'm loving how you juxtaposed "one for the kids" with the screenshot that says "lesbo"

Isn't that an homage to the recent Scrabble DS scandal where the word "lesbo" was accepted and some morons came and said that it had a negative connotation and would be detrimental to the gay community or something?

We are having a discussion about the word block issue in this forum thread. Any ideas are welcomed.
