Wordfeud is an awesome and highly addictive online multi-player game of Scrabble. If you’re not that into Scrabble, I guarantee you will after playing this Android game! Play against random online players or invite your friends from your contacts to a challenge. You play at your own pace, even launch multiple games at once, plus you can set notifications when it’s your turn. Plus there is a Chat feature for some good trash talking when you lay the letter-Smackdown on someone.
How to Play Wordfeud:
Just like Scrabble you’re presented with letters to make words on the game board. The best strategy is to spell words that result in high scores taking advantage of Double Letter (DL), Double Word (DW), Triple Letter (TL), and Triple Word (TW) squares. The blank space is a bonus piece, when you lay it down you have the option to choose any letter. Tip: Double-tap the game board to zoom in and out.
Game Board Legend:
- DL = Double Letter

- TW = Triple Word

The first time I heard about Wordfeud was from Scott Webster of AndroidGuys.com. We attended a summit with a score of industry leading mobile tech bloggers and playing the game amongst each other caught on like wildfire. The sweetest part was the iPhone folks weren’t able to participate and felt like they weren’t in the “cool club”. Remember when that used to be the opposite way around with Android 😛
