Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

Sailors and pirates may disagree, but as far as we can tell, the best way to
commandeer your boat through treacherous waters is with crafty wordsmithing.
Word Race for NOOK Family of Devices by Barnes & Noble challenges you to push your
boat ahead of the others with the oft-forgotten power of words. Given a board of
scrambled letters, your goal is to configure the longest possible word from the
letters before you. The longer your word, the more power your boat has to pull
ahead. If youre at a standstill, fear not, mate! Simply refresh the board and the
letters will scramble again to hopefully reveal more Rs and less Qs!

    Fun little game

    This game is nice if you are looking for something to win but you dont have larhe blocks of time. It uses everyday words but if you are quick enough you can make some good ones. A nice way to get your brain working since you have to make words quick enough to win the race against the othr ships. Not very long, but it's fun.

    Fun way to challenge vocabulary; love it.

    This is a cool little game for challenging vocabulary and quick thinking. You have to get your boat across the river before the times up by building words from the letters given to you on the bottom of the screen. You move up levels as you go, getting to go to bigger and different kinds of sailboats. I would recommend this game.

    Highly recommended..a must try.

    I enjoy playing Word Race for the sheer pleasure of making words in a timed atmosphere. Great for scrabble players to hone their skills.

    Poor Service

    This came up in my Nook store as today's free app, but I was charged for it. Do not trust the "Free Fridays" offers. Called customer service...she said she would refund my payment, but would also delete the app from my Nook. Looks like a fun game, so I will keep it, but I will not trust BN's free offers.

    .

    Once you pass all the levels you can play on any of the different levels. But it gets boring. And there's no goal, besides getting to the bigger boat. But im 14 and have won every single time. Good game, but it feels kinda incomplete.

    Meh.

    The game itself is ok, but sends ads for other games as notifications. Bad choice, won't buy other games from them.

    Short Game

    Short 5 level game. You can keep playing to increase your score. Other than that, there's no challenge, just repetition since the playing screen never changes.
