Ye Gods - Oh so tedious & Not my cup o' tea.
So I love Picross and have found so far "Arizona Rose and the Pirates Riddles" to be head and shoulders above the rest. I also love word games with "Bookworm Adventures" my current favorite.
In trying to branch out to something new I thought the construct of working with 3 wheels with letters might be fun. It's not. It's painfully tedious requiring a methodical step by step process suspiciously like my day job.
On the upside there are many play options that include no racing against time which I really appreciate, so there is time to build words.
So ends the upside -
The music is maniacal-carnival style so that got turned off.
Game play felt like a day in the office with endlessly repetitive paperwork. It's possible I completely missed the boat, but this is what I experienced
-Identify all possible variations of each word that can be conceived. As example, if starting with 'lit", move on to alit, lite, liter, liters, building until no more words found after rotating through all combos of the wheels. This includes working backward for -- Til, Tile, Tiles, riles, ..., well you get the drift. There are a *LOT* of mundane variables.
After an hour of play stats showed that thousands of words combinations remained. Honestly this felt more like busy work than a vocabulary builder or brain teaser.
I'm glad for all those who find the game fun and relaxing. --It is just not my cup of tea and I can't recommend.

I love word games, always looking for a new one, but this one doesn't cut it. It's more annoying than fun!

I like word games and would like to see more created, but I am sorry I do not like this one.

too much mouse effort to play this game.
too much clicking! have to click on each letter AND move cursor to the 'enter' button. cool concept but need the click once and follow where my mouse goes and then right click should be to submit, or enter on the keyboard or something, not click each individual letter plus click on enter button, my wrists already work so hard on computers these days, make it as easy mechanically as possible if you want this game to be liked. need more word games !!
