Magnetic Phonetics game board and promo offer

Magnetic Phonetics game board
Our popular Magnetic Phonetics set has always included tiles with scores printed on them, for playing IPA Crossword. Now, for the first time, we’ve developed a game board to play it on!

The squares are the right size for the Magnetic Phonetics tiles, and there are many more squares than on a standard Scrabble board (with lots of squares for double and triple scores). You can download a free PDF of the game board to print on 11"x17" paper. We like to get ours printed in color on 11"x17" poster stock at our local print shop, but you can also order a copy from our Cafepress shop. If you don’t yet own a copy of Magnetic Phonetics and want to get in on the fun, it’s available for order at cascadilla.com.

We’re also looking for promotional photos of Magnetic Phonetics in action! The photos can show the tiles in place on a file cabinet, or people arranging the tiles on a desk, or playing IPA Crossword on the new game board...or use your imagination! Just send your photos to cascadilla@gmail.com with a note saying “You may use these photos for any promotional purpose.”
