Fast word game that is both challenging and fun!
28 December 2002 | by mille52See all my reviews

Lingo is a pretty cool show. It's like that children's game, Mastermind, but instead of patterns of colors, you use five letter words. It's less of a trivia and more vocabulary. Lots of fun to watch and play at home! I would recommend it to anyone.
