WordStruct ESSENTIALS brings facets of spatial reasoning to an incredibly enjoyable word game.

Practicing two and three-dimensional word building, users integrate spatial reasoning by building up and across using word tiles to create words from every direction. While this game does fall more on the side of communications, many skills quietly promote engineering thinking, including structural analysis and iterative practices. 

WordStruct ESSENTIALS tiles can also be combined with tiles from some other WordStruct games to expand letter selection and the size of the final structure. 

WordStruct will provide an individual or family, with years of fun and practice in engineering techniques. - A. R. Miller, Purdue Reviewer
