    Hahaha.. 12+

    I'd like to see a 12 year old that enjoys crosswords enough to go out and buy the game. Especially to sit down with a hot cup of coffy.

    games are meant to be entertaining.. I dont ever remember being entertained while filling in a crossword [​IMG]

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I thought the USA release is already out?

    Is this the EURO version?

    I'd also like to know if this is any different from the USA release, before I tell my girlfriend about it.

    Don't want her wrath if it's the same 'americanised' set of questions !!??

    Yeah, I hope its more general knowledge than Americanised history only...which is the gripe I had with the previous US version.

    I stuck this in last night and the first clue on the first crossword I tried said it all:

    "The official flower of New Hampshire"

    Which means this is a *very* lazy port that is still completely American-based. Imagine a UK crossword game being ported over to the US and having clues like "The county that has the bear and ragged staff as its emblem" and "Paddington's favourite sandwiches". There'd be an uproar followed by a rapid mass binning.

    In short; avoid if you're wanting a UK localised version of this.
