Getting Old

I've been playing this game a long time! What is really getting on my nerves, is that once you reach about level 14, it starts throwing "X"s & "Z"s at you. It sets you up, that you cannot win at all – it's not even possible. You can be Miriam freakin' Webster and you will not win this game. In other words, it's not fair. For that reason, I'm getting quite tired of this potentially great game. Resolve for this problem would be to just suddenly crash, or, just make a statement that I'm too smart for you. God forbid, that I should reach some kind of "level 22".

Word abacus

So far it is great for a relaxed, focused mental challenge. Stress diminishes after a few minutes with this game. It nudges you into looking for longer words...increasing focus challenge and enjoyment. Remember words not used as much anymore. FUN!
Enjoy this more every time I use it!!! Don't miss a day and many days more than once. Thank you! One feature I wish you could add is ability to look up words, even during the game. Great game!
Still enjoying ... Had it a long time.


I truly enjoy this little gem. However, I hope the creator will update it so I can continue to play it longer term.

I play very few games and this one offers a challenge that is fun and it keeps my mind active. It costs nothing to give it try. I encourage you to do so.
