War of Words


If you like to play Scrabble you are going to love to play this game! If you love playing Scrabble than you owe it to yourself to experience a new level of excitement in which War of Words will provide. It is not difficult to learn if you take the time to read the directions. In addition, knowing what each symbol represents gives you an advantage! I will never be able to play an ordinary game of Scrabble, not as long as War of Words exists! Just when you think you have learned everything and experienced every playing board the creators come out with new and exciting twists and playing fields! It never gets boring and all of us players who continue to play are a bunch of sweet and classy people!

Love it!!


After trying this game, I immediately regretted paying to disable ads for WWF... This is so much more fun. I enjoyed it so much that I happily paid to disable ads in this one, too. I still play them both just because I paid for both, but this one is the best by far.

My only complaint is that almost everytime I'm about to win a game, my opponents resign. Really annoying, but that's more of an issue with the players, not the game. I would like to see a penalty for resigning active games (games with moves made in the last few days) or some other feature to discourage this... Even just a small one.

That said, this is still the best word game out there... Great job on this one!

THE best word game on the app store


This is THE best word game on the app store, and with every update it just gets better. Actually it's my favorite game of all! It's similar to Words with Friends, but with powerups, action tiles, bombs, barriers, reverse words, thief tiles, multiple gameboards, and customizable backgrounds - amazing! The game has a ton of strategy to it; words become weapons in an all-out war to the finish! The latest update adds even more awesome game boards and some much improved gameplay variables. It has a nice broad dictionary too - you can spell some amazing words in this game. If you're looking for a new word game, don't even hesitate, War of Words is a blast! See you on the battlefield...
