* Playing Dabble challenges you to think fast, think strategically, and dig deep into your vocabulary.

    Entertaining and a good challenge!

    If you like word games this game is for you! It is fast paced and challenging. The APP runs smoothly and you can keep a record of a number of players high high scores. My 9 year old grandson enjoys playing it too. My first time playing it kept me up late because I kept at it until I completed a full rack.

    Great word game!

    If you like Scrabble, you'll like this game. The game begins with a setup of all your letters and you are given five minutes to rearrange them to make five words of differing length. You are scored by all the complete words you make according to Scrabble-like letter values. If you complete all words, time left is added to your score.
    It's a pretty addictive game for me. There are nice awards to keep you coming back.

    I would like to see an update with different levels that have differing lengths of words. If you're just starting out you can start with a set of shorter words, then as you get more comfortable, you can try longer and longer words.

    Definitely worth getting if you love word games

    If you are a fan of Scrabble or Boggle type games, you need this one! It took a couple times to get the hang of it, but it's fun, not super easy yet not beyond reach either. I do not hesitate to say get this game!

    There are six 'bleachers', if you will, each containing a growing number of tiles. You unscramble the letters to make a two-letter word, three-letter word, etc through six letters. You have five minutes to complete it. If you don't make it, you still get points for what you got done, and it shows you an example of how it could have been done. You are not looking for a certain group of words - any six you can make are ok, so no worries about getting some exact set of six words.

    All in all, very fun, good purchase, and I recommend the game.

    Fun for a quick brain teaser

    Good little challenging word game for nook. Just wish the tile pickup control was a little more refined, but that can hopefully be smoothed out in an update?

    It is hard and it makes you think abot it,

    It is a hard game and it sort of tricks you because there are a lot of words you can make with it and it does not say it is right it uses words that you might not know or might not use very much. Also itis sort of a thinking games so this is for people whi want a chalange or has a lot of times it is also times so if you want to chalange your self time your self it tests your knolage of words and spelling too. Over all if you dont have lots of time or does not like word games or does not like to think this might not be a goodgame to get but that is my opinion and you do not need to listen to me but my over all rating is a 1 out of 3 and my opinion is out of 5 a fair game. And als if you like to leafn this is a good game to if your working on expandong your vocabulary or spelling you might want to think about getting this game abd also it is a good spelling game for young kids ages 2- 6 or kids learning to read

    Fun

    I like it, just wish the game could let you know when you have gotten the right word in the puzzle. Just a little star or something to say your on the right track.
