If you like word games and crossword puzzles, you will love SquareWords. SquareWords is an online crossword battle between two players. Invite your friends and play across all major platforms, and play as many simultaneous games as you wish at your own pace.
The object of SquareWords is to form words on a board, while trying to foil the game of the opponent. The players take turns to choose letters, which must be placed by both on separate, identical boards. The board of the opponent remains secret until after the game.
All words are validated against a comprehensive dictionary. Long words are favored over short when points are awarded, and invalid words are ignored. The player who has earned the most points when the board is full, wins the game.
The SquareWords app matches suitable opponents and offers a planning function, automatic calculation of points, a chat function, a rating system and a leader board. New players can hone their skills against an AI and young players can compete on a small board.
SquareWords is easy to learn, fun to play and hard to master. The app is currently versioned for English and Danish. Planned updates will cover 12 additional languages, but the dictionaries of 17 languages are already built into the app and can be played today.
