If you’re a wordie — that’s kind of like a foodie, but for words — you’ll want to get Microsoft Ultimate Word Games, a free collection of three of the best word games for Windows 10.
Start with “Crosswords,” featuring multiple board sizes, difficulties and lots of options so you can play crosswords exactly the way you want. Then test your skills at “Wordament” to find as many words as you can in a 4-by-4 grid of letter tiles. You can play on your own or against thousands of players at once. “Jumble” gives you a rack of tiles from which you create as many words as you can using the given letters.
With all three, you’ll get play modes with multiple adventure maps for earning stars to unlock more puzzles — and, if you’re good, to reach the treasure at the end of each map. Daily Challenges help you earn special badges, and Xbox Live integration lets you earn achievements and compete with friends.
Get Microsoft Ultimate Word Games, for free (with options for in-app purchases) from the Windows Store.
