Watch out! This game can become a habit. When you play this game online, you’ll be challenged to feed the big green, talking bookworm by linking letters together to form words. To earn more points, create longer words with more letters. To add even more excitement to the game, certain tiles are colored red. If you allow the red letters to reach the bottom of the row without using them in a word, your library will catch fire. Certain letters will earn you bonus points when you use them successfully in a word. This game teaches you to form words rapidly and is a great brain exercise for writers.

Text Twist

This fast paced, vocabulary word game challenges your ability to make words out of designated letters. You’ll be presented with a set of letters and asked to make as many words as you can from those letters while being timed. You earn points for each word that you successfully complete and will travel to the next level if you use all the letters given to you. If you need a hint, just hit the twist button and the letters on the board will be rearranged to give you a different perspective.

Free Rice

Do you have an extraordinary vocabulary? Find out at this unique site that tests your word knowledge and also contributes to world hunger. When you play this game, you’ll be given a random word and asked to choose its definition from the multiple choice list. If you get it the definition correct, you’ll receive a more challenging word on the next go round. The words are customized to your particular level and ability. Each time you choose the correct definition, twenty grains of rice are donated to the United Nations World Food Program. It’s a great way to learn new words while doing your good deed for the day.

When you need a break from writing, don’t head for the refrigerator, test your skills with these clever online words games and rack up some serious points while building more brain power.

    Would I really want to play a game that contributes to world hunger?? There will be even more starving people and I will have helped increase the problem? Oh my!
