Free game - Every Word Updated on Kindle

For those new to Kindle or who missed it the first time, you can once again purchase and download the game Every Word in the Kindle store. For those who already have this game, the one-click button reads Update Available and you can select which of your compatible Kindles to send it to right on the product page, rather than having to go to Manage My Kindle to do so. A new content warning has appeared that there may be words inappropriate for children (just as in any dictionary) and it's been missing from the store long enough that there must have been a team going thru every single word in the dictionary to block anything that might be considered remotely offensive to any particular category of adults (although I suspect that task will never be done). If you read the reviews, you'll find a number of one-star reviews given specifically due to the censorship being applied (although the original no doubt also had some words blocked itself, despite the title implying that every word in the dictionary must be used).

For those who don't have it, this is a fun game (and guaranteed time filler), while those who do will need to decide if they want to update their existing Kindle (for Kindles added to the account, you could still download the old version if it were in your archives, up to today, but may get the new version for future downloads). Unless you play a lot, the chances of running into the expunged words are no doubt fairly small, in any case. My biggest problem with the game is trying to figure out all the extremely obscure (and short) words that it uses.

If you like word scrambles then Every Word is the game for you. Test your vocabulary as you try to find as many words from the scrambled letters in this fun and fast-paced word game.

Here's how it works. You are given six or seven scrambled letters with the goal of finding as many words as you can. You score points by filling out the words in each empty spot on the board using only the letters that appear at the top of the game board. Keep at it until time runs out or until you fill up the board. The more words you make, the higher your score!

Your score is comprised of two components: first make a lot of words, second try to make the longest word possible in each scramble. The best way to increase your score is to do both, but it's a huge bonus to find the longest word possible. Why? Because when you do, you earn the right to play a completely new level with a brand new set of letters. As long as you keep finding the longest word, you can move on to a new level with a new jumble of letters and push your score higher and higher.

Please note: Every Word may contain content inappropriate for children.
