Discovery School Review Corner

"UpWords is a very easy to learn electronic word game that has players forming words with stackable letters on a gameboard. Its straightforward rules and scoring system make it more appropriate for younger children in the suggested age group than Scrabble, the more popular game in the same genre. This makes an excellent family game with a wide range of challenge levels and gameplay options, and provides a good language experience for kids."

"UpWords is surprisingly fun, and children ages 8 and up won't notice they are playing a game that is rather educational -- kids can improve their spelling, vocabulary, as well as logical thinking and strategy skills.

"Playing against the game's artificial intelligence at high levels of difficulty is a lesson in humility. Scrabble fans will enjoy this new game that essentially is their favorite game with an interesting twist and a more straightforward scoring system."
