A Scrabble like game. Description off the box: Alphemo is not a crossword puzzle; words are formed horizontally only. Words are also formed letter by letter. Each player has his own color board. Letters can be superposed; the letter on top gives the point. The use of the dictionary is allowed at any time so young and adults can compete. A difference of only ten points stands between the winner and the losers which keeps everyone involved in the game from beginning to end.
