Good one ! I gave it tops for fun.

I got it because this was a great "rainy-Saturday-morning" or "driving-cross-country" game for me and the fam.

Wanna play?

3x3 game. Squares are (L-R, Up-Down); 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.

Subsequent players can change any prior word.

I'll begin with 4-5-6 (that's the middle row - left to right)

4D 5O 6G (DOG)

Next ?

Took a bit of time, some paper and a pen, but quite easily solvable.

Like Cutebug I was clueless, but after seeing the answer, I know I would love to try more of these!

I like the concept! Thanks!

Fun concept. With paper and pen it didn't take long at all. I'll have to look for more.

I wrote down the across words as I thought of the answers, figuring that I'd have to move them around to fit the down clues correctly, but, lo! they matched perfectly just the way they fell!! (Have not looked at either the hint nor the answers.) So, I'd have to say this was easy and fun!
