Product Description

Can you keep up with Shuffled Row? See how many words you can make from 60 lettered tiles.

The tiles are added to your row one at a time so you'll constantly be working with a new set of letters. After you submit a word, the letters you used will be removed and new ones will be added. Increase your score by using less common letters. Create longer words and increase your score even more.

If you don't use the letters fast enough, they'll disappear and new ones will take their place, so you'll have to decide if you want to play it safe and use short words or try to wait for more letters to form longer words.

Test your vocabulary and how well you can think on your feet with Shuffled Row - try it today!

4.0 out of 5 stars This Is Fun! August 3, 2010
Before I talk about the game I thought I should mention that I'm one of those people who likes the fact that Amazon has designed the Kindle to focus completely on reading and I have no wish for the Kindle to become a multi-purpose device. With that said, I'm not against "frivolous" additions to the Kindle as long as implementing them doesn't take away from the core design and I prefer they remain optional.

I downloaded both the games that were added to the store yesterday and of the two I like Shuffled Row a lot more. I've had the games less than 24 hours and have already played many rounds. I was surprised to find that the game was slightly addicting, though I expect that will wear off when it's not so new.

Shuffled Row is sort of a mashup between Scrabble, Boggle, and Bananagrams, but with the twist of there being some guy standing there swiping your letters if you don't use them fast enough.

You have a sort of Scrabble tray of letters that are added one at a time and once the last one is added the first letters start dropping off. So you have to use them before they disappear off your tray. There is a progress bar that moves at the bottom of each letter so you can see when they will appear and disappear. There's a box at the top that tells you how many more letters you have left, out of the 60 total, and a list at the bottom shows which words you've made and how many points you got for each one.

Three letter words don't get many points. Using more letters multiplies your word score. So four letters gets a 2x multiplier and so on. Just like in Scrabble, different letters have different point values assigned. So if you can make 5 letter or more words using high point letters you can get some good scores.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice addition to my Kindle August 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
I downloaded this yesterday along with Every Word.

I have to say that I liked Every Word much more than this one. With that said, it is a neat kind of game although not nearly as relaxed as Every Word. You have to be really moving your brain to make words out of the given letters before they drop.

I guess what I'm happiest about is that both of these games have given me (yet another) excuse to bring my Kindle with me wherever I go.

Hey, it's a free download. So get it for your Kindle and give it a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very cool Game August 3, 2010
Verified Purchase
Good graphics. No need to turn Wireless on or open web browser. overall a very good game except that i have to practice typing without looking on the small kindle buttions so that I will be better able to keep track of the new letters as they appear on screen.

***Update I see in some of the reveiws that people are mad that the games description does not tell you that it will not work on K1 or any of the apps. This is true, however the page does let you know this on the "Available on these devices" link under the price. If you click on it you will see neither the K1 or apps listed**

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and Challenging! August 5, 2010
By Rich T.
I never expected to play games on my Kindle, let alone one as well-designed and fun as this one...and (as of this writing) FREE! What a cool gift to Kindle owners! Simple to learn but challenging, this one's hard to put down. I also enjoyed Every Word, but this one involves more creativity and strategy. I highly recommend it: It's the best word game I've played since Bookworm.

5.0 out of 5 stars fun little game August 7, 2010
Verified Purchase
This game is fun,and well worth the download price of $0.00. Others have described this game well enough, so I'll just say that it's perfectly suited to kindle. It uses the keyboard,doesn't need fancy graphics, and makes you feel smart. Between Shuffled Row and Every Word, Shuffled Row is the better game, but both are entertaining and challenging word games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Game! August 3, 2010
I really like these type of games.

You don't have to leave the wireless on to play it, and that is a plus for me. Unlike some other games I have tried on the Kindle it works EXTREMELY well in the Kindle environment and is super easy to play. The graphics are good too.

I love these kind of games and play similar ones on my Nintendo DS. Now I don't have to take my DS with me when I travel....oh no, I think I'm sounding like an Iphone/IPod/Ipad fan (wanting a do it all device....shudder) It will make for a nice distraction between books or when it is to distracting to read.

Nice Job any how!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Addiction September 10, 2010
Shuffled Row is a word game for the Kindle that is sort of like a speed version of Scrabble. You start the game off with sixty letter tiles that pop up in the nine spaces on the screen. Based on those letters you have to create a word. The trick is that the first tile is on the clock and if you don't type in a word fast enough, that tile drops off. The game is completely addicting and engrossing. You start playing and before you know it, three hours have passed on by. To make this game even more worth the while, it's a free download.

Not Available on 1st Generation Kindle
Now I know why I couldn't get any information on the games from the Kindle blog where the games were first mentioned. They neglected to mention that the games couldn't be played on a 1st Generation Kindle. That is really a low blow! How about letting us 1st Generation Kindle owners get a... Read More

Putting Shuffled Row on a 2nd kindle
So far I can't figure out HOW to download Shuffled Row to a second Kindle. When I select the drop-down box to choose the second kindle, I simply get a message that I have already purchased (free) this. It tells me to go to Manage my Kindle. On the Manage My Kindle list of the books I have... Read More

Shuffled Row not working
Yes. I have a 3rd gen. Kindle, and it seems since about the same time my game stopped working correctly. It doesn't give points, and it seems to be running in an automated mode, I mean, it's "playing on it's own". Freaky.

Highest score
I'm happy when I get over 300!! At first, it was 200. My best word was squire, but I don't remember how many points. A very frustrating but addictive game.
