Best Word Games?

I like word games. The ones where you're putting things together out of groups of random letters. It's a very relaxing sort of process for me, and I tend to play them a little obsessively.

I'm talking about stuff like Wooords, W.I.E.L.D.E.R, and Puzzlejuice...that sort of thing.

Anyone have any similar sorts of games to suggest?

There are literally tons of word games of these types - just not many do them well. If you haven't looked at Textropolis by Nimblebit, that has been a longtime favorite of mine. They also did Fishtropolis, but I did not it as much.

The three you mention are favorites of mine. Also, SpellTower is really good. Check out the current front page article. Also, Moxie 2, WordsWorth, and Jambalaya.

We actually just released a new 3D word game called Letterbox earlier today.

You can check out the thread on the forums here.

Second for PuzzleTower. Really awesome to play and the beauty of the game is how elegant it is.
