New Fun Games Added Today
You told us you wanted more word games, so we listened!
Today and yesterday mark the start of two new fun games in the words section - and as with all the fun games here at Wordy Puzzle, they are completely free to play for all members.
The games are:
In this game you need to find the synonym for the word given - there will be three options. One of the options will have the same or very similar meaning, and that's what you should click on. Beware of the red herrings however!
This game is a great test of your vocabulary, and also your concentration as you must resist clicking on related words which are not synonyms consistently if you want to build a high score.
SpellChecker, as the name implies, is a game that requires you to spell check a set of four words given. On each occasion, only one word is spelled correctly, accompanied by three incorrect options.
Can you work out which is the word with the correct spelling and click it? Some puzzles are trickier than others, and of course if you are not a good speller, all the sets of words could prove tricky.
However it's a great way to get better at spelling, and also to have fun at the same time. You'll be a spelling whizz in no time at all!
We hope you enjoy these games, and remember if there is anything you'd really like to see here at Wordy Puzzle, please do just let us know.Date written: 29 Jul 2015
