More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 9+.

For puzzle lovers and word game players, from the Man Who Puzzles America. Word Winder is the most addicting word game available on the NOOK! It is the brain child of America's most syndicated puzzle maker, David L. Hoyt (Daily Jumble, Word Roundup, & many others). And now it has been updated with even more puzzles!

Word Winder offers six amazing and totally original games in a single app!

Play by yourself and choose one of four different puzzle games -- each game has 55 unique puzzles hand crafted by David L. Hoyt (a total of 220 different puzzles).

Play together with friends and family (pass-and-play) in your choice of multi-player modes. On your NOOK, the game plays just like the hot new Word Winder board game -- many game industry experts are touting this as one of the best word games ever invented! Players compete to form the first winding line of words from one side of the board to the opposite side. It is a game of strategy and cunning, of offense and defense, and of forming alliances and outwitting opponents.

The six entirely original games are:

- Word Winder Finder -- Find winding answers to crossword style clues. Three rounds in each puzzle!

- Word Winder Frenzy -- Find words of different lengths winding through a letter grid. Race the clock for the best time!

- Word Winder Challenge -- Locate the best sets of winding words stretching across the game board. Beat the David Hoyt score if you can -- he pre-played each Challenge puzzle placed on the NOOK!

- Word Roundup Frenzy -- These are 50 BONUS Word Roundup puzzles. These Word Roundup puzzles have been a David L. Hoyt hit on the Internet for years!

- Word Winder Multi-Player (2 or 3 player) -- This pass-and-play game is utterly addicting. Every game has new challenges and new opportunities and an entirely different playing board!

- Word Winder Multi-Player Speed (2 or 3 player) -- Each player has a countdown clock and each player tries to beat the opponents before that clock runs out!

Word Winder is the game of winding words from the Man Who Puzzles America (David L. Hoyt) -- the game which has created all the buzz at Toy Fairs around the world! Get Word Winder today.

    Loving it

    I really think this is a great app. You can play 3 different modes: frenzy, finder, and challenge. It is a very smart idea. Trust me, you will love it. It is way better than wordly! And almost as good as words with friends!

    Fun Word Game - (similar to word search, but better)
    I love word games, but they generally don't love me. I've played Scrabble with hubby for years, but I use an online scrabble helper to help me make words of my letters; I play Words with Friends with my brother, but, again, I use a helper to help me. But this is one word game I can play by myself and enjoy to the hilt, never feeling the need to find some online source to help me. "Just one more time" seems to be my plea when I play this game. Addictive!

    Greatest Word Game Ever!

    I love this game. Being able to play alone or with others is a great feature. It is very addictive. Once you start playing, you don't want to stop. Best word game that I have ever played!

    I love this app, although I'm somewhat addicted to computer games anyway. However, this is challenging and educational at the same time. Hard to put down!
