These are games in which you have to deduce your opponent's word, by guessing words and being told how many are correct. These are not games where you guess a single letter at a time and are shown where it is, like in Hangman or Probe.

Each letter is broken down into a number of sections, e.g. 'E' = 1 long straight bit, 3 small straight bits. You have to guess the opponent's word by first guessing the letters from their componment parts.

I vaguely remember playing this in elementary school. The summary here says that "An activity deck spices things up a bit by altering scores or revealing letters."

Apparently, you not only try to discover the Hidden Word but then its Premium Words as well!
