Ratings and Reviews
Love this game
Whirly Word is exactly the game I was looking for to replace my former favorite word game whose ads became longer than each game. I love that there’s a dictionary to build vocabulary, and that I can often completely solve the basic level games, but enjoy the challenge. I love that it is a simple interface and there are no ads. I wish the instructions were a little better. I don’t know what the badges mean besides that the lower numbers are better. The vocabulary leans heavy on the harder words being biological terms, unusual spellings, or abbreviations and proper nouns. For instance, anil, Tao, and noncom are valid, but ade and guyot are not. I checked the online Scrabble dictionary for these words, and all were valid except ade, which seems strange, because an ade isn’t unusual for a fruit drink. I must surmise, then, that all word games are subject to the knowledge and biases of their creators. I do wish it were possible to access the full Whirly Word dictionary between games, and also add words to the dictionary for our local use, but I can live with that.
Whirly isn’t all it should be
I’ve been playing this game for a few years and have found that certain words are foreign words, yet if I try a commonly used word other than an English word it won’t work. Many very obscure words are Arabic and never used by anyone not fluent in those languages. Too often I try words that are rejected only to find them when I go to the next round. It’s totally frustrating!
Yep. That pretty much sums it up. I've had a lot of fun using the abridged word list so now I'm rocking the tournament one. This is the only game that offers two word lists in the options and you end up with massive amounts of puzzles between the two of them. I'm getting better at scrabble and actually beat my husband for the first time! He's a walking talking encyclopedia but lost gracefully.
There are words in it from different religions such as Christian, Judaism, Budism, Islam, etc. If you are closed-minded, a bigot or a racist then you will be just as offended by this game as you must be by the common dictionary.
But if you just want to have fun exploring words, than you’ll love this game!
