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!


  1. I'm so excited! I found one of these games. I think mine is a '68 version. I can't wait for the mailman to deliver it.

  2. I'm so confused... but I DO like Sudoku!
    (would that help me understand it better?)

  3. Jenny,
    Think like scrabble. Hey, maybe your mom has the game, or would like it.

  4. Cool. A convert you'll have to let me know if you like it as much as I.
