SpellGrid+ for all word game lovers [promo codes]

Hi all word game lovers!

I have some promo codes for SpellGrid+ to give away. Just reply here and I will send a code your way (until I run out).

Please also follow @spellgrid on Twitter (some promo codes will be posted there at different times).



SpellGrid is a solitaire strategic word building game that fuses anagrams with crossword building.

A game of SpellGrid starts with a single word which has no repeated letters. For example, SCHOLAR, DISCOVER, and AWESTRUCK are valid starting words (for 7, 8, and 9 letter grids respectively). You then clone and arrange one or more letters to form additional words, joined together in an ever expanding grid.

It is like Scrabble on an infinite board... without the luck factor - there is no drawing of tiles; you get the same letters to play with every turn, so it comes down to strategy (placement) and skill (vocabulary).

Here is an example (grid started from the word ONSTAGE):


SpellGrid (universal) is free to download (comes with ads, and QuickPlay for 7 letter grids only)

SpellGrid+ (universal) is ad-free and provides QuickPlay for 7, 8 and 9 letter grids

Any feedback, reviews, ratings, ideas, opinions, etc. are welcomed!

It's a word game? Yes, please!

Just got a code, downloaded, and played for a bit...


UI is very well done. The game looks, feels, and sounds quite good.

Gameplay is effortless and really seems to encourage "thinking outside the box." To clarify, your scoring is only dependent on your imagination, spacial relationship skills, and your vocabulary.

You choose a pre-written word, or make up your own, and then "build" a crossword from your initially chosen first word. In the end, you have a gaming field that resembles a crossword or Scrabble board, comprised entirely of letters taken from the initial word. I should note, each letter can be used infinitely.

The ability to play your own music is a bigger BONUS than I had anticipated. After experiencing a random pick (Adele - "Set Fire..."), I can only imagine the possibilities, which brings me to my only real niggle with the game.

If there is a "relaxed" mode, I couldn't find it. If there isn't one, a game like this would benefit DRAMATICALLY from the addition of one.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to a friend who likes word games and was looking for something creative. It's quite well done, and unlike anything I have seen prior.

Thank you so much to the dev for allowing me to check it out!
