Word-o-rama is a book of word searches that you can use to stimulate your brain and pass the time when you're bored. Each book contains more than 500 puzzles tailored to various skill levels, and people with experience doing word searches will be able to complete many of them in about seven minutes. The puzzles also have different themes, such as the beach, holidays, and religion, and with each book, you'll receive a package of six double-sided colored pencils.
The cost of Word-o-rama is $14.99 plus $5.99 shipping, for a total price of $20.98. Price is from As Seen on TV Commercial page: getwordorama.com
To get started with this book, you'll need to pick a word search puzzle to do first. You can either start with the first one that appears or flip through the book in order to find one that suits your interests and skill level.
All the pages in each word search book are perforated, so you'll be able to tear the page that your chosen puzzle is on out of the book if you'd like. This may come in handy if you plan on completing the puzzle outside your home and don't want to lug around a fairly heavy book.
Regardless of whether you tear your chosen page out of your book or not, your final step will be to complete your selected puzzle by finding all the words listed below it. These words may appear forwards, backward, vertically or even diagonally among the letters within the puzzle. You can use any writing utensil you'd like to complete your puzzle, but you may want to select one of the double-sided colored pencils included with the book to use.
Given that each book contains more than 500 puzzles, and assuming that each puzzle will take you approximately seven minutes (or more) to complete, each book will offer you more than 58 hours of fun. Besides entertaining yourself instead of sitting around doing nothing, you'll also stimulate and improve the functioning of your brain by completing the word searches in your book. After you've been doing word searches for a few weeks or even a few days, you may find that your memory is better and your thought patterns are clearer. Furthermore, you may notice that your problem-solving skills have improved since word searches train the brain to look at situations from multiple angles or viewpoints.
The print in each Word-o-rama book is large, so virtually anyone will be able to see the letters and words on each page clearly. If you normally wear glasses for reading but don't want to put them on while you complete your word searches, you may not need to due to the size of the book's print.
Since any page of this word search book with a puzzle on it can be torn out, you'll be able to display your completed word searches on your fridge or bulletin board if you choose. A child who has completed their first adult word search may be especially interested in this option.
With each word search collection, you'll get a package of six colored pencils that you'll be able to use to complete your puzzles. All six pencils in the package are double-sided, and each end is a different shade, so you'll actually get 12 shades in total in your package. Aside from using these pencils within your word search book, you can use them on any other kind of paper, too.
The selection of puzzles in each Word-o-rama book range from very basic to more advanced, so anyone in your family or group of friends will likely find one that suits their needs. However, none of the puzzles are so hard that they'll exhaust and frustrate the majority of people.
While it's perfectly fine to do these word search puzzles on your own, and some people might prefer that, you'll also have the option of completing them in a small group. The print in each book is so large that if several people were to sit around a table working on one puzzle, they'd probably all be able to see the puzzle clearly.
If you're a passenger in a car or on a bus, train or plane, and the ride's going to be long, you'll be able to make it go by more quickly by doing a puzzle. You'll also be able to whip out one puzzle or your entire book (if you've brought it along) when you must sit for a long period of time in a waiting room. If you're anxious about the upcoming appointment you're waiting for, working on a word search will help you take your mind off your worries.
These days, many people find word search puzzles online and must spend time printing them on their own, a task that also uses up their printer's ink. Fortunately, if you've got a Word-o-rama book, you'll have more than 500 already-printed puzzles to do, so you can save your time and ink cartridges for other printing jobs.
Even though you'll be able to tear out individual puzzles whenever you feel the need to, the fact that this book is large may still be a drawback. The book may take up much more room than other paperbacks on your bookshelf, which could be annoying if you already have limited space.
On a related note, another drawback to this book is that after you've ripped them out, you can't re-attach pages in the same way they were attached previously. If you want to keep all your completed puzzles together in your book, but you've removed some, you'll have to tape them back in, which could be time-consuming and may not look attractive.
All of the puzzles in each Word-o-rama collection include only English words. While this will likely satisfy the needs of most users, someone who's attempting to learn a second language like Spanish or French may appreciate seeing some non-English words within their puzzles.
Instead of obtaining one of these books, you could use smaller word search books, but if you do these puzzles regularly, you'd have to get replacements from a store on a regular basis. If you choose one of these Word-o-rama books with 500-plus puzzles in it instead, you may not have to obtain a replacement book for months or even years. That means you'll be able to spend less time searching through bookstores or their websites and more time doing the puzzles that you love.
