This game shows that there are "families" of words such that when you know how to spell a word in a family, you have an easier time learning how to spell additional words in that same family. For example, in the ???ay family, you'll find words day, hay, may, pay, stay, way, bray, stay, sway, spray, stray, and many more. The three question marks ahead of "ay" mean that you can use one, two, or three consonants ahead of "ay" to learn other words.
An example given is ???etch. Additional words in this family are fetch, ketch, letch, retch, and more. You are challenged to find words in 19 games.
