So You Think You Know Words

JohnBWell, do ya? Because if you don't, you might as well just give up now, this game is too much for you. In fact, give up writing and talking altogether. Why bother, right? Kinda hard not to accept a challenge as brazen as the one brought forth in the title of So You Think You Know Words. Fortunately, the mobile word game doesn't skimp in the content department, allowing you to spend hours on end proving that you do, indeed, know words.

So You Think You Know WordsA minimalist game in every sense, So You Think You Know Words features hundreds of levels packaged into a few basic themes (foodie faire, amazing animalia, simply synonyms, etc.). Choose a category, then pick your poison in the form of dozens of word triplets built around an even more specific theme. Once you're in, you'll see three slots at the top of the screen containing a series of blank boxes. At the bottom are letters, just enough to fill every box above, neatly forming three words. Try typing out a word and making a guess to see if you can fill in one of the mystery words!

So You Think You Know Words is a little more trial-and-error than pure skill, so even though it talks big, you can probably force your way through if you're quick enough with a virtual keyboard. From within the game, you can ask your Facebook friends for help, or turn on hints and receive a single letter from each word for free. If you want a real challenge, though, tough it out, use some letters, and fill in those blanks all on your own!

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on a NOOK Tablet. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.

I played for a little while, then deleted the game when I realized that the creators expected me to misspell "lavender."

Since spelling words is the entire mechanic of the game, I need to be able to trust the spelling of the authors.

Hey Guys,
This is Jamie with The Smyth Group. Thanks for reviewing (and playing) our game.

Isaac, yeah, we know we blew it with the spelling of "lavendar" and one or two others. We are releasing an update across all platforms that fixes those spelling errors. And to make up for it, we have also decided to release our new puzzle pack about TV, Movies, and pop culture for free. It'll be out soon.
