One of the things I really love about my kindle is that it is a single purpose device. It is good for reading, but not much else. But Amazon has been releasing simple games that try to prove me wrong. Many people love these games. I am not going to install them on my kindle. I do not need any more distractions. But you might love them. There are book free and paid games. The paid versions include: Scrabble, Hangman, Mahjong, Sudoku, Texas Hold’ em, Solitaire and more.

If you like word scrambles then Every Word is the game for you. Test your vocabulary as you try to find as many words from the scrambled letters in this fun and fast-paced word game.
You are given six or seven scrambled letters with the goal of finding as many words as you can. You score points by filling out the words in each empty spot on the board using only the letters that appear at the top of the game board. Keep at it until time runs out or until you fill up the board. The more words you make, the higher your score!
Your score is comprised of two components: first make a lot of words, second try to make the longest word possible. The best way to increase your score is to do both. Why? Because when you do, you earn the right to play a new level with a brand new set of letters. As long as you keep finding the longest word, you can move on to a new level and push your score higher and higher.
Can you keep up with Shuffled Row? See how many words you can make from 60 lettered tiles.
The tiles are added to your row one at a time so you’ll constantly be working with a new set of letters. After you submit a word, the letters you used will be removed and new ones will be added. Increase your score by using less common letters. Create longer words and increase your score even more.
If you don’t use the letters fast enough, they’ll disappear and new ones will take their place, so you’ll have to decide if you want to play it safe and use short words or try to wait for more letters to form longer words.
Test your vocabulary and how well you can think on your feet with Shuffled Row – try it today!
