Classic Words is the reference of board crossword games. Play quick games against your iPhone or iPad, and enrich your vocabulary thanks to the built-in word definitions!
Classic Words is the best word game to play against your iPhone or iPad (solitaire mode). Scrabble for victory and enrich your vocabulary thanks to the built-in word definitions!
6 languages are supported: English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Dutch.
Tired of stumbling across cheaters or waiting for hours for your online opponent to play on multiplayer games?
Try out Classic Words for instant fun, no matter if you are a beginner in crossword games or a tournament player!
Choose the difficulty level (from beginner to expert), pick a word list, and use your strategy skills and vocabulary to try and defeat the iPhone. The English word lists included in the game are inspired by the official lists used in Scrabble tournaments: TWL and SOWPODS.
Classic Words gameplay is classical to crosswords board games: create and place words on the board and boost your score by placing letters on the high scoring Double Letter, Double Word, Triple Letter and Triple Word squares.
Use all 7 letters from your rack to play a Bingo and get a 50 points bonus.
This game is a great time killer for all fans of board games and strategy games. It is also an educational game that will allow kids (and adults :-) ) to improve their spelling and vocabulary.
Thanks to the fast reactivity of the artificial intelligence (AI) and to the official word lists, Classic Words can be used by the traditional word game enthusiasts to play quick training matches and learn new words from the computer's moves.
Unlike with multiplayer board games where some dishonest players use anagram solvers, there is no cheating possible when playing in solitaire... Letters and blanks are always picked randomly, and the computer's artificial intelligence does not have more information than you do.
Only your tactics and creativity can make the difference...
Will you play strategically enough to outwit the computer and its extensive vocabulary?
- 6 levels of difficulty
- Automatic display of the definition of the iPhone words
- Distribution of letters and points are adapted to the language
- Supports offline play
Languages and dictionaries supported:
- English (SOWPODS 2012 + TWL06)
- German (with support of Umlauts, and Ezset to be replaced by two 'S')
- French (based on the official Scrabble word list)
- Spanish (DRAE)
Improved AI: the computer is now smarter (especially on hard levels)!
Graphical improvements, better readability.
Ratings and Reviews
2 Suggestions (please, please!)
These 2 suggestions derive from my previous praise for Classic Words as a tool to prepare for live, tournament- style Scrabble: while that is true, two features lacking in CW seriously diminish its resemblance to Scrabble and I would LOVE it if you added these features as OPTIONS.
(1) NO SECOND CHANCES — the iPhone/iPad would recognize but not reveal to me any non-word I play and I would lose that turn. (2) TIMED PLAY — perhaps with selectable times (30 seconds to 5 minutes??) Having beaten CW’s Very Hard and Extremely Hard levels over 80% of the time, I came to see that most of those wins would likely not have occurred against a strong Scrabble opponent, since I would not have enjoyed unlimited time to experiment with possible words! Many CW users, of course, would have no interest in these features, but I suspect many would love the challenge. Please consider.
I learns to play scrabble as a kid, I’ve been able to spell rather well. But the game itself has been medicinal for me over the years. I’m an older gentleman and I’ve really have had this game as a part of my life for almost 50 years. And NOW I can hold it in my hand! Really impressed more so because I’m still marveling with the advances of technology. But this app is really appreciated. I like this app because whoever did this, did it with me in mind! Plus I really do know a lot of people that play Scrabble and if I did I’d actually enjoy pulling out the board & dictionary. But this app allows me to play at a level that suits me perfectly. I play all the time. In the car, waiting at the drugstore, anytime I travel and winding down from the day. I’ve been playing on my phone now for about 7-8 years. And I’d just simply like to thank U again!
I love your version of Scrabble!
I had been playing ScrabbleGo and not enjoying the game because of all the interruptions! Then there were issues with scores. A player had 2,6000,000 points in on tournament, I got out my calculator and did the numbers, no way could this player amass that many points according to her stats. I did inquire about it with the site and they did not seem to care.
I deleted the app and was sad that I would not be playing the game. I went online and found your app! I am in a happy place again! No complaints from me!
This game keeps my mind occupied during these crazy times!
Hope all are staying safe!
I think this game is what is keeping me sane during this time in the world! I enjoy playing against my iPad! My iPad is my best friend these days! I haven’t seen another human in months besides my husband and he might say three words to me every few days.
I do not have one complaint! Only a huge Thank You!
Today is the day that the new bill for COVID-19 relief passed!
Your game has probably saved my life! I coming up to my 7000th game! I love playing time game! It keeps my mind sharp and stops me from dwelling on what is going on in these crazy times I pray that our country will heal soon!
