A word game for people who love word games. Much more than a word jumble, in each round of Three Magic Words you are challenged to complete three five-letter words with the available tiles in a test of logic and language skills. Solve all three words to advance to the next round. Get the right letter on a star before time runs out to collect it — increasing the difficulty of the next round. Collect nine stars to win!

Challenge friends via text message, email, or social media. Having trouble? Adjust the difficulty by giving yourself more clues!

Challenging and addictive!

This one is fun AND good for the brain! If you are looking for a mindless game - move along. It’s really challenging - in a good way - definitely exercises the brain! It started to click for me after a few tries and then I was addicted to beating my own time, increasing the difficulty, and of course, challenging my friends and family and trying to beat them! Love the background colors and stars too! Very satisfying!

Words words words!

I have never rated an app before. I love this game I’m so glad my friend recommended it to me. I don’t mind “wasting” time playing because I feel like I am improving my brain-End it needs improvement. I love word games and I found this one challenging and easy to understand so I could start having fun from the jump!

Move over Wordle - you can play this all day long!

This game moves quickly and you can determine your level of difficulty. I enjoy trying to beat my previous records and increase my difficulty with each round. The words are great, and some are really tricky! But it’s fun for any level any time of day.
