Great card game!

This is a great solitaire game with letters rather than suits. It becomes challenging very quickly. If it does not allow to stack the letters a certain way, it is because the rest of the word is not in the cards. Once you figure it out, you rearrange your cards. Definitely a strategic, challenging game. As another poster said, this and Pyramix are the best word games.

Weak Dictionary

I like the game, but the dictionary is woefully weak. As I understand the game, if you add letters together that would ultimately make a word, the game would accept that combination. However, I have found that is not always the case, particularly when adding "ing" to words does not always work. Similarly, the game does not recognize many letter combinations that could ultimately spell a word.

The concept is good, the dictionary needs an upgrade.

    Instructions are L_cki_g

    It is a good game, but the instructions stink! I was born when the dinosaurs roamed the Earth, so I'm not familiar with the internal logic of Gameboys or PSP or whatever the heck else is out there!

    The instructions are not particularly helpful and should be improved. As another poster commented, the dictionary needs improvement, too, in my opinion. BUT it's fun once you figure it out!

    Like it but....

    This game used to work. Now once I complete a level the time continues to run and doesn't let me type my name in. Cannot keep track of my better games/times - very frustrating!

    Love it!

    A quick little word game that is intriguing. It allows you to go on to harder challenges as you feel you can. I really enjoy this one!

    For Solitaire Lover's

    If you love solitaire, you'll really like this word solitaire game. I think there could be better instructions to be more user friendly but once you get the hang of it, it's a nice game.

    Luna-- Thats me! "A bit fun!"

    Hi!
    This is at first interesting, but after a few days it gets boring. Its educational, and fun for young children, I guess. Its an OK game, but Ive seen better.
    Thanks!

    Great and fun game, except.

    Can't put names in , hard time putting places in like london at 1point. Yes, I agree dictionary needs updating. I can't get past level 16. Can't find a lot of words with j,x,z,qu, esspecially when you only have certain vowels to work with. You have to use what they give you. Has anyone gotten past level 16. What level are most of you on.
