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

Languages and dictionaries supported:

- French (based on the official Scrabble word list)

Old dogs can learn new tricks
Thank you thank you. I never thought I could play scrabble let alone enjoy it. No pressure, I’m not keeping anyone waiting, no foot tapping under the table. I have finally relaxed enough & I love it. I can put the game down & come back when I am darned ready.
Now the best thing, I am learning so much. Spelling never came easy to me and now I get instant feedback. If I misspell a word I rearrange the letters. Sometimes I think I know a word only to find out I’ve been hearing it wrong all my life. Couple that with poor spelling skills it’s not even funny. But my spelling has improved greatly. This improvement is a direct result of the design of this app. I tried another scrabble game but you couldn’t tell if the word was valid until you pressed play & that was a time waster & tedious.
Another good thing is that I am seeing words where I previously only saw letters. On my tray & on the board filling in letters to make some sense.
I still play the board easy but my words are longer & worth more points. I’m not very competitive but I am having fun with strategy. Trying to play words in certain places so later I can play off it.
So a good time was had by all.
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.
Classic Words gets 5 stars from me!
I prefer solo games against the computer like Classic Words for expediency reasons, so this one has gone directly into the "favorite games" folder on my iPhone!
The interface is easy to use and the processing is fast. There is no game clock or time limit, so I can take as long as I want to place my tiles.
So far my only criticism is that there are no clear labeled "save" or "resume" buttons when you leave a game and want to come back to it. I thought my unfinished game was lost until I clicked "new game"; it took me right back to the one I had left the night before. Good function, but slight lack of clarity with instruction.
Very enjoyable game for the casual solo player who doesn't want a "social" game.
Two thumbs up!! 😉
