Wordsmith is an online multi-player Scrabble game… highly addictive and extremely fun with friends or strangers! This game slightly differs from similar games such as Words With Friends (dud) and Wordfeud (stud); multiple players in one game, thus you can play with three or four player games versus just two players. Just like these games you have the letter mixer (you can even shake your phone to shuffle), you can clear the board, guess three times wrong and forfeit your turn, pass or play a valid word. Wordsmith features push notifications which will tell you when it’s your turn to play. One caveat with the notifications is if you’re not signed into the game you will not receive notifications; for example if you restart your device.
How to Play Wordsmith:
Just like Scrabble you’re presented with letters to make words on the game board. The best strategy is to spell words that result in high scores taking advantage of Double Letter (DL), Double Word (DW), Triple Letter (TL), and Triple Word (TW) squares. The blank space is a bonus piece, when you lay it down you have the option to choose any letter. Tip: Double-tap the game board to zoom in and out.

Fun Factor & Addictive:
These Scrabble-like spin offs are great for the serious or casual players. Very fun & addictive plus the bonus of being a good brain buster challenge. Plus you get the benefit of playing at your own pace (as you can see from one of my screenshots, it took me 17 days to play one game).
The game board is neatly laid out, you can zoom in and out of the board with pinch zoom or double tap gestures.
