Solo-only sampler version of DICEWORDS, a compelling word game playable at all skill levels. DICEWORDS-X retains many features of the full version app, including the addictive puzzle. Try it for free!

DICEWORDS-X is played with 9 special alphabetic dice. Each turn you have up to three rolls in which to build the highest-scoring word you can, so typically you keep some dice and re-roll the others, aiming to get the letters you need.

It’s best to have several word ideas in mind because you never know which letters will come your way. Longer words will usually score you more - and if you can use the rarer letters too (Q, Z ...etc), you can get huge scores!

But there’s much more to this game than lucky dice rolls. The on-screen ‘Dice Table’ shows you which dice contain which letters, so you can weigh up the odds of rolling particular combinations - and therefore use strategy to improve your chances.

DICEWORDS-X takes care of the scoring - and tracks your word average to compare performance between games.

Played this a Lot - Word Gamers Will Like This

I have played Dicewords for many hours. It's something I thoroughly enjoy and recommend this to anyone who likes word games. For newbies, it's really easy to pick up and run with it. I like it better than Scrabble as the rules are a lot simpler and it's the same type of challenge where you have to make up the biggest scoring words you can with a limited amount of letters. It's a very neat concept and no doubt I will spend a lot more time playing this nifty game!

Developer Response ,

Thanks Frankie. It's certainly quick to pick up but it rewards using your brain too to stretch your vocabulary.
