Freeverse Software announced today that X-Words Deluxe has begun shipping to retail outlets in North America. “Long popular in its downloadable form, this new OS X version brings all of the word-buliding fun right to your local Mac shop. As a bonus, the box also includes a copy of CrossCards, the addictive mixture of poker and X-Words.” Similar in style to Scrabble or Upwords, the US$29.95 game allows players to take turns creating words on a board with special multiplier squares.
