Brain bender

Love this game! Fun with friends or alone. Easy to take a break and resume as schedules require. The adjustable computer player settings prevent discouragement or provide an excellent challenge. The ad interruptions are distracting, but provide an additional type of a brain concentration building challenge! Well designed, well played!


This game needs a dictionary. Scrabble has one and many other games that I play have it. This would help us know the definition and it would make playing this game so much easier. I would be happy to pay for this added feature. Please think about incorporating a dictionary in this game. D I C T I O N A R Y!

Multiple games can be tough

The game play is good and the word library is extensive. I do wish that you were not forced to acknowledge when a word is played in another game. I also wish they begged for ratings less frequently.
