Making sense of 100 jumbled letters can be intimidating but don't worry Letter Garden gives you unique ways to clear space for your flowers to grow. In Letter Garden you can connect letters that are either up, down, left, right, or diagonal. The word also doesn't have to follow one specific direction, you can change direction at any time to make longer words. Don't get too carried away because the clock is ticking!
No. 3 - THE BOOK OF TREASURES
Take on the challenge of discovering a long lost Egyptian manuscript in this fun word game, The Book of Treasures.

No. 4 - BOOKWORM
For this worm, words are the only thing on the menu but don't let his small stature fool you, this Bookworm is hungry! Be patient and try to make words with as many two and three-dot letters as possible.

No. 5 - FAMILY FEUD
One of the all-time great TV shows, Family Feud is back and better than ever! If you are a fan of the show then you will love this interactive game. The rules are the same, type in answers to questions that were surveyed by 100 people. The only thing this game is missing is an eccentric host giving out hugs and kisses.
