Pursuit Prefixes


In this brain-tickling adventure, players strive to properly match prefixes with roots. They try to dodge pitfalls while making bold moves to shepherd their four pawns safely home. At the same time, players try to outwit opponents by setting up roadblocks and capturing pawns. Every move affects strategy. This is an exciting road to forming more than 200 words with the 12 most commonly-used prefixes and 68 roots. Intensive, playful practice!
