Deck of Words

JohnBCan't decide if you should play a game of solitaire or a word game? How about "both" so you can stop arguing with yourself and just play? Similar to Word Solitaire in basic concept, Deck of Words delivers exactly what it promises in the title: a deck of lettered cards that must be used to make words. Stack everything just right to spell the most valuable words you can conjure, or else you'll find yourself at the end of the pile with very little to show for your work!

Deck of WordsDeck of Words is played like a game of klondike solitaire with letters instead of suits and colors. At the top of the screen is a line of cards, some turned face up, with some others face down. You have a reservoir of cards in your deck at the bottom of the screen, along with a cauldron where you can dispose of a few pesky letters per game. Simply tap and drag letters around the screen, moving them from pile to pile or from the deck to the top of the screen. You can only place cards on cards that could possibly form a word, so if you slide that "A" on top of the "F", you're doing it right, but if you stick "Z" on top of "Q", you should probably think twice about your English language skills.

Deck of Words provides a nice, soothing atmosphere to challenge your spelling skills, with excellent backdrops and a color scheme that will calm your aching eyes at the end of a long day. The variety of the levels isn't so grand, as each round is pretty much a more challenging, randomized repeat of the last, but the core mechanic is solid, and you'll find no shortage of challenge in this unique hybrid.

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.
