The Crux is a word-based game, designed for all to play and enjoy. It is a great tool to enhance your understanding of the English language, by identifying words in a jumbled format. The best way to describe the game is that it is like a word search combined with anagrams.

This game designer created the game to help with his own dyslexia and confidence with words.
