Keesdrow -- Mensa Select® Winner(search on Board Game Geek)
This game is definitely one of the rare gems that manages to take elements from the two most popular trademarked word games and combine them into something that actually works without coming off like a cheap ripoff. The peg-based interface wouldn't have been my first choice (I'd probably use color transparent tokens) but they seem servicable. I left this game wondering about overall strategies (is there ever a good reason to play in a completely unused region of the board? Does the game work for three intense players or is turn order too important for a multi-player game to be anything more than just social fun?), which is definitely a good sign.
(Yes, I know what Keesdrow means. Thanks.)
