Are you tired of looking up every other word in the dictionary, but need to learn new ones to strengthen your vocabulary? Then, the simple solution for that is to read as many vocabulary rich books as possible and dig into them till you reach the last page. While this may seem like a viable option, it isn’t necessarily a fun one, especially if you are not very high on reading. You need a whole new level of concentration and dedication to finish and understand the entire volume.
This is where the puzzler RPG game Mumbo-Jumbo by Peter Simard comes into play. You may think that games are for fun and not for education. Think again because learning is everywhere as long as you keep an open mind.
