Default Best iPad word games

There's already a best word games post on TA: (http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=42482), but it's riddled with iPhone/iPod touch games. Instead of sorting through it all to find the best iPad games, I thought it would be appropriate to start a new list of awesome word games specifically for the iPad (or universal). If you know of other excellent word games for the iPad please share.

Best iPad word games:

- War of Words
- Abble Dabble
- WordsWorth
- Word Solitaire
- Scrabble
- Word Avalanche
- Jumbline 2
- Scraggle
- Wordflick
- Switchword
- Super Cosmic Word Snake
- Word Spiral
- Hangman RSS
- Table Twister
- Boggle
- Words with Friends
- Worcle
- Crux
- Jangle
- Pyramix
- Letterfall
- Word Seek
- Spellsquares

Out of all of these games, War of Words is my favorite (and it's free).
I also really like Five-O, it's actually a numbers game but is based directly off of Scrabble.

Nice list, many of which I am not familiar with and will have to check out.

Moxie 2 HD is a pretty great single-player word game and there is a free version of the original Moxie HD as well.

War of Words, Abble Dabble, and WordsWorth are all async multiplayer games.

I love Word Solitaire HD. The game is hard enough to make me really think, yet I can usually complete each puzzle. I actually like the original iPhone version the best.

It's free right now too, don't know why.

My favorite word game is not on your list: We Doodle (FREE) by Ngmoco. I've spent more time playing that game than any other, by miles.

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/we-doodle/id387630599?mt=8

It's a "Pictionary" type game, where you either draw, or guess what word is being drawn.

The only negative about the game is that it has regular server instability issues and crashes periodically. Still, I keep playing because I'm addicted to it.

This game is awesome. I don't know of any other app quite like it, the combo of drawing pictures and guessing words is a great idea. The link you posted is for the iphone version, but there's an HD iPad version also available on the developer's page. Very fun and unique word-art game, been playing it for the past several hours. Thanks for the heads up.

thanks for listing the async ones. i guess there will be more and more of those to come with iCloud/iOS5

Here is one that popped up on the radar not long ago called What's my word.

WordsWorth HD, yeah! Great single player and multi-player (turn-based) options!
