JaLink! is much more than just a cool name (Although, really, just try to shout JaLink! without feeling happy. I bet you can’t.) It’s a high-speed creative free-for-all that pits players against each other in a race to associate images in ever-changing ways. Think up a new connection and you get to shout JaLink! and collect your kudos. But stay on your toes, because each connection reveals a fresh set of images on the game board and a world of new possibilities.
