Brain Game

My husband and I play everyday. It keeps us in touch when we are apart while giving us a fun word puzzle. We upgraded to the paid version to avoid the ads. My only complaint is the dictionary allows words that aren't in other dictionary's. Otherwise the game syncs well between devices and is keeping our vocabulary sharp.


I love UpWords and this is a decent ap. Your computerized opponent will throw a few odd word curves, but like Words With Friends, you can try out your own weird combos. Ads are a bit annoying, but I've seen worse, so I can't complain.
Wish the free version let you see your number of wins and scores.
Can't wait to play with my human friends!

Fun game w/ too many ads

Fun game... Great way to pass the time solo or with friends. However new version has far too many intrusive repetitive ads. I don't mind ads, but not in the middle of almost every other play.
