Essay 1589 on 挑 (to challenge) Is Now Out

The 146th essay has posted! Essay 1589 on 挑 (to challenge; provoke; defy; make love to) is now available for purchase. Here's a preview:

This kanji has three sides to its personality. One part is ambitious; you can use 挑 for setting world records, trying skydiving, launching a spacecraft, or just challenging yourself with an exam. Another aspect of 挑 causes trouble, enabling you to have a defiant attitude and challenge others (even bears!) to a fight. The final side is sexual; with 挑, you can turn people on! 

Using the accompanying Phrase Maze game on the Character Home Page, you can practice the vocabulary in the essay after reading it. 

Several games for older essays have also become available:

essay 2071 on 爪 (nail, claw, talon; hoof)
essay 2072 on 鶴 (crane)
