Product Description

Thread Words is a word search game for Kindle.

Your goal is to find words in a 5 high grid of letters. Find words by selecting one letter from each column. On each level there are ten pairs of shapes. Make words matching each shape on the left with the same shape on the right to unlock the next level. After matching all shapes you can continue to find the rest of the words for a higher score or immediately move on to the next level.

The game progresses through 4 levels of difficulty, with grids that increase from 4 to 7 letters across. Each word you find is worth 20 points per letter, and if you find all of the qualifying words you get an 800 point bonus! Try to beat the clock or take your time in relaxed mode. The game tracks separate high scores for each mode.

If you like word games, you'll love Thread Words!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Free Great Game from Amazon May 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just downloaded and played a timed game. Your goal is to match all 10 pair of shapes on the left and right by selecting one letter from each column to make a word. Letters can weave up and down as you move across. When you match all the shapes you unlock the next level. Then you concentrate on finding the remaining words before your time runs out.

Each letter is worth 20 point so a 4 letter word on first level is worth 80 points. The length of the words increases on higher levels. A bonus of 800 points given if you find all the words on the board.

The words on the board are in alphabetical order which help find words like Every Word.

There is a tutorial mode if you are new to the game. You can also use the keyboard instead of 5-way controller. I found typing worked faster for me.

Checking the words you miss afterwards is always good for vocabulary building.

Amazon came up with another fun word game. Give it a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice Free Game for Your Kindle May 18, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a fairly straight-forward little game where you try to make words out of letters. Similar to other word games, you can't use names, but in a different mode things like days of the week, or states. This one is good for kids, too, as I think these type of games are much better than a shoot-em-up game.

One thing that is a little different rather than going in straight or a pure diagonal line to find your letters, you can weave up, down, and sideways after selecting one letter from each column. You also have to match some shapes in order to go to the next level.

You can also do a timed game or an untimed game (called a "relaxed" game). Unfortunately, I do better doing the "relaxed" game!

Overall, especially considering the free price, this is a neat little game for your Kindle!

If you like word games, and in particular Amazon's previous popular Kindle games Shuffled Row and Every Word, you'll like this one. Instead of visually unscrambling the letters (Every Word) or creating words as letter drop off (Shuffled Row), now you have to connect the dots between the letters on the board. You get to move up a level when you create words that use certain letter combination. I found it easier to deduce the words left to find between the word list (alphabetical) and the letters left on the board.

You can choose between a timed or relaxed game play (I chose relaxed), but this game doesn't have the frenzied pressure to find words that Shuffled Row with its falling letters has, IMO. This game has more similarities to Every Word, but of the three games, I rate this one third after Shuffled Row -- and Every Word as the best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun word game May 18, 2011
By meik1
Format:Kindle Edition
This is very similar to the othr word games created by Amazon Digital Services. Even some of the words are the same. Many of the words are wierd and not really the type you use everyday. Using context clues such as looking at the word on the top or bottom can help you figure out what letter a word starts with, since words are put in order of the first letter. Also, by matching the shapes on the side, you only have to figure out the two middle letters. A good game for word lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Building my vocabulary with this game July 23, 2011
By ellafan
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have to start out by saying I am addicted to this game.I have a good vocabulary,and some of the words that are acceptable in the game are pretty obscure.That's good.I learn new words. I have gone through level 10 many times,sometimes frustrated because I simply guess at a word ,stringing together unusual letter combinations,and lo and behold,it is an actual word,albeit not one in my vocabulary...until I come across it in the game.
All-in-all,a fun game.Starts easy then becomes more difficult as you progress through each level. But not so difficult that you cannot finish most levels.Level three might be a tough one,then level 10 is easy.I like the inconsistency.Makes the game more challenging.
One thing I have discovered about myself while playing this game:If I am having a difficult time finding a particular word,I put the Kindle down and do something else for a while.Then I come back to the game and the word I was searching for jumps out at me.I'm sure it must be my subconscious that helps me.But it's kind of cool.Fresh eyes and all.
I have purchased some word games for my beloved Kindle,and this one is the very best.I'm looking forward to Version 2.0 !!

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Kindle Game May 30, 2011
By Lil Val
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got this for free and it's a nice distraction when I'm tired of reading, or sometimes I play it inbetween books. It starts out easy and becomes more challenging as you progress through the 10 levels. I am not a suduko fan and I love this game, it's great at enhancing your vocabulary. I can play it for 15 minutes and then all of a sudden see a word that makes me say, "I can't believe I missed that!" You can always stop and then pick up days later at the same level too, which is nice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Addictive!! July 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a word game lover, this one is right up there with Every Word, my current favorite. It's different enough to provide variety, yet still has the same object - finding words with a limited number of letters. I highly recommend this game to all my fellow word geeks!
