    What makes this game completely unique is the beauty of a well polished/easy to navigate game (finally someone gets it!) and the intrigue of combining a word game with strategic action tiles. Warning: This game is for the grown ups who have always wanted more out of turn based word games, not those looking for just the next copy cat of scrabble. Once you've played with bombs, reverse tiles, extra turn tiles, and more you will never go back to the boredom of a classic word game. This is the first turn based iOS game I've never stopped wanting to play no matter how crazy life gets. Expand
