Squek! is a family game useful to teach English to children (it appeared on the Greek and on the Italian market) with a fun and amusing mechanic.
Players earn Squeks guessing the right translation of the words, or pay penalties if they fail to do so. Several mechanics make the game more intriguing and amusing: there is the possibility to buy the answer from other players that will try on your place, if you think they are better than you, but the bargain must be done within a minute… and the seller could give the wrong answer anyway! Joke cards are the most amusing part of the game: they add suspense, put a bit of fortune into the game and are the occasion for some good laughs.
A small pronunciation guide come within the game.
The game sold 16.000 copies in Italy with the first edition: a very good start for a non-major publisher without any advertising.
