If you're a Scrabble Player or just love word Scrambles and Word Searches, then you will love this scrambled up word game book made for you!
I give the Bard full credit for these sonnets, and thank him for having written them 400 years ago. Thus, giving me the chance to turn his Sonnets into fun word games in this book for all of you. So please let your friends and Shakespeare scholars in on the fun. I hope to bring a whole new way to enjoy his sonnets. Joe Wocoski loves reading Shakespeare's sonnets and doing word games and has combined his two loves to write five word game books based on 150 of the sonnets. "In school people suffered as a teacher taught them how to read the sonnets," said Wocoski, a quality assurance manager in the Washington area. "My reasoning is that they are really good and I want people to have fun with them." He began the project about 10 years ago and has been doing it in his spare time, usually late at night. "I would work on them from 10 p.m. to midnight," he said. "I had no help. My family thought I was crazy, but I kept on until I finished all five books in the series, I am releasing periodically with the last two in the series in 2014 and 2015."From the Inside Flap :
Each book contains 150 sonnets with five word games with 30 different sonnets in each game. He plans to publish the third book in in a month or two and the last two at six-month intervals after that. The first word games are simple word searches. At the bottom of each sonnet there are nine words and the reader's job is to find the word in the sonnet. The second is sonnet scrambles. Here he puts another list of words at the bottom of the sonnet. But these words are scrambled and the reader must unscramble the word to find it in the sonnet. The third game is number fumbles where he replaces each vowel in a sonnet with a number. The reader has to figure out what number equals each vowel. But he changes the number for each sonnet. The fourth game is known as the Da Vinci Code. "Da Vinci wrote backwards right to left," Wocoski said. "All I did was reverse each word in a sonnet." For instance, in the Da Vinci Code morf is the word "from," only reversed. The fifth game involves cryptograms. which are ciphers or secret codes. Here Wocoski uses one letter in place of another. For instance in one sonnet he has the word "xu." X stands for i and u for f; altogether there are 750 puzzles to solve in the five books.
