You are an author trying to finish kitschy paperback novels. Complete Westerns, Science Fiction, Romance or even a Crime Noir. Live the dream — and maybe pay the bills.

Word-building meets deck-building in the unique game Paperback. Players start with a deck of letter cards and wild cards. This is like their own bag of ‘scrabble’ tiles. With each hand of cards you make a word and score it. This score is how much money you have to purchase more cards for your deck. Collect cool letters with abilities, such as drawing more cards or double word score. Buy Novel cards to gain ‘fame’ points to win the game!

Editors' Notes

The handsome boardgame has effortlessly made the leap to iPhone and iPad. We adored its stylish design and felt our vocabulary swelling thanks to the tantalizing word-making challenges. The ability to take on various tiers of AI opponents ensures we’re always challenged.

Too many bugs


Game continuously freezes and crashes and unable to finish a single game. Price is too high for what you get. This game still need fixing!

Always freezes


There's always a point in every game where it freezes and I can't play. I've never finished a game. Tried in a couple of devices.

If an app doesn't work than it should get 0 stars.
