says: As a mother, writer, gentlewoman farmer, owner of 7 dogs and 3 horses, runner and avid film goer, my spare time is VERY valuable to me. That precious time is usually spent with my nose buried in a word game. In the pre-digital world, I use to digest every crossword puzzle, cryptogram and jumble I could find.
Now I have an iPhone to access all kinds of word games. The list compiled below is from 14 months of hands on research by someone who knows word games. (Note: I have scored over 17 million (yes, million) in desktop version Bookworm, TWICE!) The games I have collected here fill my spare moments with great pleasure.
I will only recommend those games I believe to be worthwhile of your time and money. I left out the Text Twists, Scrabbles, Crosswords and Jumble apps in order to focus on new, innovative games. Those are worthy games to play, too.
I would love for you to add your games in the comments below. There are never enough games to be played.
