Fan of scrabble? Fan of thinking? Well, look no further! My faithful companion just learned a new trick, its called Wordsler, and word game (duh!) that pits you with random tiles to test your English, and your intelligence.
We all need an extra bit of help with our words, and perhaps even our scrabble scores, and this fast little mini game helps with both. With options to try to play through a set of 50 cards at your own pace, play through 50 cards on a time limit, or pit yourself against another player head to head online. Who needs real friends when you have word games?After looking into a few of the more time heavy games lately, its good to play one that only requires a few minutes, addiction permitting. The standard game was straight forward and smooth, and although I didn’t get through all the cards I still progressed reasonably well. Time trial plays exactly the same but with a time limit, adding a nice spice of pressure to the equation. Funnily enough I managed to score better in time trial then I did without the pressure, but perhaps I had a lucky moment.
The online play is defiantly a nice touch, after creating a username and some waiting; I was taken to a time trial game. Whether I was actually competing against I don’t know, but my score was submitted to the game webpage to see how I fared against everyone else, so that is at least fun.
As you can see from my amazing scores, word games are not my forte. It’s been said that Australians don’t even speak real English, which may be true depending who you ask. Regardless, I stay away from most forms of word games, and nothing makes me run faster then a mention of scrabble. Even all that said though, I did find it somewhat enjoyable matching up words here, and would probably find myself trying again in a spare minute. I suppose that it is easier then scrabble, and the fact that it’s only a few minutes of pain which compels this Aussie’s few brain cells to get to work on this occasion.
