    When does it start? Wurdle still $1.99, haven't checked the others.

    The only ones I don't own are Wurdle and Wordology.

    :eek: It's like when I go to a new Wal-mart and ask where the Electronics are and they point to the sign right over my head...

    Hmm, I hadn't heard of Wordology til now and I might get it as it's the only one on the list I don't own.

    Not sure about the gameplay though. I play a lot of Word Nerd (Formerly "Word Up") and though the tiles aren't stacked it's still the basic principle to me.

    Only differences being that you can't see all the letters in a stack and you get bonus tiles for more points.

    Has anyone played both and can shed some light on this?

    I first stepped into a Super Wal-Mart less than a year ago... haven't done that again. Scary.

    I also already own most of these, but would still pay again if they could put them all in one icon.

    Textropolis, no question.
     
  14. I have all of them and recommend them all. Well except one I don't have is wordology....might be worth looking into but I already have Wordjong though which I love. You got wurdle to drop to a $1...wow wurdle has been $2 since beginning of time as humans know it.

    Favorite word games so far have been WordJong (love getting a new puzzle each day) and Textropolis (trying to get 5 stars on every city, but damn, it's hard).

    I've heard good things about Stitchem, and this looks like as good a time as any to pick that up.

    I don't know much about the others. I'd be interested to hear some comments.

    In terms of bang for your buck (literally) I think it's Textropolis first and Stitch 'Em Words second.

    I own all of these games except for Wordology. Further investigation reveals a lite version! Wordology Lite

    For anyone who is considering one of these wordgames, I have all of these except Wordology. While they all involve forming words they all do so in very different ways. And the good thing is that ALL of these games have some important things in common, specifically they are highly polished games and the developers are active, keen and responsive to constructive feedback on their games.
