David Hoyt, a Chicago man who’s reportedly the world’s most syndicated daily word game creator (whose handiwork appears in more than 650 newspapers) and the inventor of numerous puzzles and brain teasers has set up shop at 4312 N. Lincoln Ave.

Hoyt’s Center for Collaborative Learning – which had its grand opening several weeks ago – is offering after-school programming, adult game nights, and private parties for all ages.

According to Hoyt and his wife, Claire Haasl, brain teasing games like his USA Today Word Roundup, USA Today Up and Down Words and board and card games like Word Winger, This Day in History, and Uno Freefall are shown to

help develop strategic skills and overall creative thinking.

Hoyt, who notes he has worked with major game and toy companies like Mattell and Hasbro for more than 20 years, said his “play based”  approach is designed to make learning “accessible, interactive, inclusive and enjoyable.”
