Windows Phone:

A war of words
SquareWords is not a rehash of any existing game, but a new creation from the base up. It is probably also the only genuinely absorbing game that can be played with nothing more than pencil and paper. To learn how, watch this video:

Easy to learn – fun to play – hard to master
SquareWords is easy to learn, but you will have to be good with words to win. The game is somewhat similar to crosswords. The object is to form vertical and horizontal words on the board, while trying to foil the game of the opponent.

The players take turns to choose letters, which must be placed by both on separate, identical boards – according to individual plans. The board of the opponent is invisible until the game has ended.

Long words are favoured over short when points are awarded. The player who has earned the most points when the board is full, wins the game.

Chat with your opponent
The SquareWords app offers a selection of boards and matches suitable opponents.

The app automatically calculates points and offers a planning function, a chat function, a rating system and a leader board. 

New players can hone their skills against an AI and young players can compete on a small board.

More info
SquareWords can be played in 17 languages: English International, US English, Danish, Dutch, French, Faroese, German, Icelandic, Italian, New Norwegian, Norwegian Bokmaal, Polish, Portuguese, Brazilian Portuguese, Romanian, Spanish and Swedish.
