App Description

FoLaWo™ July 4th
A twist on the classic sliding tile puzzle, making simple - not so simple, by combining a sentence unscramble (quotes from declaration of Independence /Constitution or the Pledge of Allegiance ) with a sliding tile puzzle.

In normal tile puzzles you have to put the tiles in order, more often than not using numbers or letters, or you have to rearrange the tiles to form a picture. FoLaWo™ uses the same puzzle mechanics but makes your brain work a bit harder to solve the puzzle, while also providing some learning/ or knowledge reinforcement benefit.

FoLaWo™ puzzles combine the classic tile puzzle with in effect another puzzle (originally designed for foreign language learning (FOreign LAnguage WOrds), in July 4th the other puzzle is a sentence unscramble(English). In the classic number tile puzzle you effectively unscramble the numbers but this is done quite passively in the brain as everyone knows how to count from 1 to 8/15/25… so your brain does this for you out of routine - i.e. subconsciously with minimal effort on your part.

July 4th makes you have to think about the word order in this case the order of words in quotes from the Declaration of Independence, Pledge of Allegiance, or the Constitution preamble " We the People…". You have the choice of solving a 3 X 3 or 4 X 4 puzzle focusing on the Independence, Constitution, or Pledge.

When playing the game you will first have to solve the puzzle of which word is actually number 1 (sometimes this will be given to you, other times you have to figure it out) - you will know the last word (is written in green text, and takes the place of the blank/empty space, (FoLaWo™ uses 9 or 16 tiles rather than the classic 8/15)). Then which word is 2nd , 3rd and so on.

In the end having solved the puzzle means that your brain would have had to have been actively repeating the correct word order many times making associative connections (those two words are next to each other) and in effect learning, just like you did when you first started to learn how to count!

Fo La Wo - Enjoy!
