Endless Possibilities

I love words and these games get all the neurons firing for answers. I've downloaded a number of apps that make it fun to find and use words, but I'm addicted to all the Word Jewels games. Not only are they challenging but the customer support is beyond reproach: I emailed them about a problem and had an answer and a fix by the next morning! Five star games with five star service. You just can't beat that combo.

High praises for word jewels , except for one thing....

I love word jewels! I play it more often than I should..... like at work! The customer service is great.
However, I find the word game called, “wordzing ” in which the player is supposed to make words using 11 purple, 19 green and 13 blue letters ( for example) in 8 moves to be frustrating and demoralizing.
I’d like to skip that game because I’ve had very few successes.
It’s a real buzz kill!

I am ashamed to say that I play Boy Howdy word games even when I am supposed to be doing something else, no matter how critical the "something else" may be. I have always loved words and assembling words with the Boy Howdy games is a great joy to me. My sisters and I trade words on line in a friendly competition, always trying to outdo each other. What could be better for this than Word Twist?
