Educational Insights- TriTective 3-Letter & Word Mystery Game Review + Giveaway


      Educational Insights is a great store that is located in Southern California. Whether your children needs a little extra help in math, language, science, or other subjects. Educational Insights has you covered and has products in all of those subjects and more subjects to help your children learn!

     Educational Insights website is easy to navigate and also has 3 different tabbed categories on their website which include products for: Parents, Teachers, and Classroom Jeopardy! I also like that you can find products easily by subjects, brands, category, and theme. This is a great store to go to if your children in your classroom or at home needs extra help in certain subjects.   


     I'm happy to introduce you to a fun mystery game from Educational Insights that is great for kids that are in Grade 5+.  This fun game is called TriTective.




About TriTective

"The 3-letter mystery game!

Race to crack the case using only 3-letter words! This mystery word game includes 100 spy cards featuring 3 words each in metal storage tin. For 2 or more players. Grades 5+"

How to Play:


1. Choose a player to be the spy and have the spy choose a mystery word card.

2. Players take turns reading words from their cards aloud to find out how many letters their words have in common with the spy’s mystery word.

3. Using their super sleuth powers of deduction, players determine the 3 common letters on the mystery card.

4. The first player to guess the 3-letter mystery word wins the round!



      TriTective is a game created by Caitlin Hogan. TriTective is a fun game that is made up of 100 cards that come in a sturdy tin. I love the tin because it stores the cards safely. TriTective is a game that is perfect to take on vacations, traveling, or to take to get-togethers to have fun playing this mystery game of 3 letter words. Older children in grades 5 and up love this game along with adults as well. This is a perfect game to have at home to play this game with children at home. It's a great game to bond together. TriTective is a game that really helps test cognitive skills.

     I love that their are words to choose from for easy, medium or difficult play. The yellow words are the easiest words. The blue is medium. The red words are the most difficult words. We had fun starting off with the yellow words and then tried the other difficult words after we had practice with the yellow words first.

     My family had a lot of fun playing this game. One person picks a word from a mystery card and this person is "the spy". Everyone else are the "detectives" and have cards and show the cards, to the spy, to try to figure out which letters they have in common with the mystery word. The spy tells the detectives how many letters on the card are in common with the mystery word. 

     A great strategy of the game is to have paper and a writing utensil near by to jot down all letters of the alphabet. Cross off all the letters that are not in common to help narrow down the letters and to help you guess the mystery word!

     This game is super easy to set up and it does not require any big set up process to get started. Simply pass out a few cards, pick a mystery word, and get started! The directions to the game is very simple to follow. The game time was around 40 minutes to play for us, but it will vary with different players and mystery words used. This game is perfect for family game night! We had a fun family game night playing this game!
