Growing up, my family would sit around the kitchen table playing, Boggle and Scrabble. These are still two of my favorite games. I’d alway hope I could beat my dad. He seemed to produce the most amazing words.
Time past and along came technology, and with the advent of mobile gaming, developers began combining two games. Voila! Along came Ruzzle (free/$1.99).
What it does, and how it works
Ruzzle is like Scramble with Friends, which combines the concepts of Boggle and Scrabble — search for words, score points — into a fun, two minute, time-burning challenge.
Now, I’m not trying to say that Ruzzle is any better than Scramble with Friends or the other similar games. Ruzzle is what Mrs. The Droid Lawyer is playing, and I’m having fun beating her.
Plus, Ruzzle seems to give an equally matched opponent when you opt to challenge a random player.
It’s easy not to get discouraged because you’re getting wasted by someone significantly better than you. Of course, that’s not always the case, so you “roll with the punches.”
If you’re looking for a fun way to blow a few minutes and “educate” your mind, look at Ruzzle. If you want to challenge me, just send a request. My “friend” name is JEFFTAYLOR7.
Ruzzle gets an overall grade of 4.
