Players use 9 random letter tiles to create as many words as they can to fill in the word pyramid (i.e. one 3 letter word, one 4 letter word, etc up to 9). This requires the cognitive flexibility to look at the same group of letters and be able to come up with different words. The larger a vocabulary that a player has, the better they will be able to think of words that fit.
This game requires a decent vocabulary, as well as the ability to think of words in that vocabulary (i.e. expressive language skills). Players with weaker expressive language skills will have a harder time, but this game can also be used to improve those skills if someone can provide hints and help during gameplay.
