  • Choose from 3 dictionaries
  • Track scores and achievements online

Product Description

Dropwords is word-finding puzzle that combines some elements of Scrabble and Boggle, with a dash of Bejeweled. Valid words boost your score and the dwindling timer; used letters disappear and new ones drop down from above.

Now with optional access to PapayaMobile's social network, global leaderboards, and achievements!

The game offers three dictionaries:
1. Scrabble: contains all the 2-to-8-letter words from the SOWPODS list of Scrabble competition words. This amounts to 114575 words, including both US and UK spellings. Because this is a Scrabble dictionary, proper nouns like "June" or "Rome" are not included. Plurals are included.
2. Webster's: based on the Webster's New International Dictionary, 2nd Edition, this contains 87422 2-to-8-letter words. Includes some proper nouns, but not plurals or Scrabble-specific words (such as my own favourite, "QI"!). I have added certain words that seemed to be missing in error: BOX, HAS, KID, NEAR, FAVA, HID, PAID, EUROPE.
3. Both! The combination of the Scrabble and Webster's dictionaries, comprising 153139 words. This is the dictionary used by default.

You can switch dictionary via the game's Options dialog.

Have fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice Word Game for Kindle Fire. May 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
This word game is very similar to "Bookworm". I am a HUGE fan of that game so I gave this a try. You form words from letters in vertical columns. It is a nice change from other word games, and trains your mind to look at how words are formed in a different way. Easy to see and use. Give it a try!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great program for seniors January 18, 2012
Verified Purchase
I have searched for a word program like this since I got my Fire for Christmas. What I wanted was this type of game without the stressful timed game. That is great for the young and "game" but for a older and slower person I needed the ability to make it last for days if I wanted to.
I think everything about the options is perfect, I could not ask for a better game.

Have you tried putting your Kindle into "airplane mode"? That eliminates ads on some apps.
