This one is an old and a rare one. The game is 5! You hold 5 tiles. You can only place lines up to 5 long. Your tiles have to add up to multiples of 5 only (every direction). And it is on a scrabble-like board. It is intended for the strategist and mathematicians, but can be fun for anyone if you don't want it to be competitive. Oh, but I get competitive at this game.
The game was made in 1964 and re-release only one more year in '67. I got my copy at DI in Rexburg, Id this summer while visiting. it was only $4.00, too bad, it would have been much cooler if it was $5.oo!
