Welcome to the world’s greatest mix of horse racing and word making! A multiplayer turn-based sprint to the finish line.
Saddle up and challenge up to three friends to turn-based multiplayer races where your vocabulary is your best weapon. Up to four players can compete or go head-to-head to create the best possible words from a pot of letters. Power-ups and bonuses can turn the competition on its head, but nothing beats out an ace word-maker. Take it from the horse's mouth: With art based on classic horse derby games from carnival midways, Word Derby is an asynchronous game unlike any other.
RACE TO THE FINISH
Choose your words wisely by picking letters that will earn you the most points. Earn time bonuses for making words quickly against the clock. Be the first to 200 points to win the race and earn the derby trophy.
Stand out as you trot down the track by spending your hard-earned tickets on new jockeys such as Bella, the unicorn-riding princess; Arthur, the dragon-mounted black knight; and many more.
NEED A BOOST?
Struggling to conjure up those precious high-scoring words? Fork out on power-ups that give your character a much-needed boost, remove locked letters, and even give hints that point you to the best words available.

Been playing this game since last summer. Addicting and never gets boring. It one of the games I play daily when possible. I love that when I play a random opponent who gives me a challenge I can continue to play them. Just wish I could add them to a list of friends within the game so if for some reason we hadn't played in a while and they are not an Facebook friend I could still invite them to play a new game. Also wish you could use the bomb but still have access to that letter elsewhere in the word you are using. Other than that... Awesome game
Fun and challenging
I enjoy this game. Could be a little faster, like incorporate a 'speed game' option...where you only get that initial countdown time, keeping the bonus points the faster you go, that way you know you're opponent is truly coming up with the word and not Internet searching a 'high points' word. Plus I think the speed would add to the fun. I really like the pass and play feature to play w husband. Only negative is I feel it repeats the same combo of letters because I see a lot of repeat words.
This is really fun to play. But I'm having some trouble where the game doesn't sync correctly. I'm just about to send my word in, but then the game fails and it just exits itself out. When I go back to redo the game all the time that I had previously is gone. Is there any way to fix that because I'm loosing some points there. Thank you so much. And keep doing a great job because this game is a lot of fun.
