Wordle, the daily word game that became an overnight sensation, has gotten the world into word games. So I thought why not suggest some other fun games, both table and video, to play that get your word-guessing skills working.
In the mobile puzzle video game SpellTower, the player attempts to clear the screen of jumbled, lettered tiles by using them to create words. There are multiple gameplay modes, from a rush mode where new letter tiles appear faster, to battle mode, a multiplayer mode where each completed word sends tiles to their opponent’s screen. It’s Tetris meets Bobble on your phone, and with so much variety on how to play, there is sure to be a mode for you.
Unspeakable Words, also known as The Call of Cthulhu Word Game, is a card game that has players form words based on the cards in their hands. Bigger words can score more points but are risky since you’ll have to test your sanity with a dice roll to see if the powers of Cthulhu overpower you. Having to create words from a set of letters is a new way to test your word-forming skills.
Dictionarium is a video game where players create a dictionary entry for a made-up word by either starting with a fake word or with a fake saying, and then the group votes for their favorite answers. It is more goofy and humorous than working with real words like Wordle but still requires some creative thinking to make good answers. It’s part of The Jackbox Party Pack 6 so it’s made to be a multiplayer experience that adds a new, extra fun layer to words games.
A Little Wordy
A Little Wordy is a two-person tile game where you must use your tiles to create a secret word and then use different clue questions to guess your opponent’s secret word. I’ve reviewed this game previously and it is a great word game to upgrade to after Wordle.
Wordie is a mobile game that consists of finding the common word between four images to reach the next level. Like many mobile games, you can earn reward coins that can benefit you or buy them, and that way you can get a clue in case you can’t find the chosen word. With over 3500 levels, you are sure to have plenty of rounds to keep you busy between Wordle games.
