Multiplayer Game of the Year
Words with Friends HD
Macworld rated 4.5 out of 5 mice (read review)
Words With Friends for iPhone gave the Facebook Scrabble craze its first real competition, letting you play multiple Scrabble-like word games with friends near and far—even when you’re on the go. (The built-in chat feature for lexical trash talking is also fun.) But Words With Friends HD eliminates the iPhone version’s biggest frustration by giving you a usable full-board view—no more zooming in and out, in and out. Once you’re hooked, you’ll find yourself anxiously awaiting that distinct chime letting you know one of your opponents has finished a turn—and hoping it’s not a triple-letter/triple-word play of Q-U-I-Z.—DAN FRAKES
