Word Jewels® is FUN and 100% FREE!
••••• "Awesome in so many ways! First of all, there is no time limit on this game, so it's more relaxing than other word games. You know how you get stressed out and watch the time on other games... none of that here. You can also close the app mid-game and go back to the same game, which helps as you get better and better. My favorite word game right now, definitely." --kenjer

Set your own goals

I like free apps, but have never been one to do games per se. This is an intellectual challenge so I love it!! I turn OFF all sounds so I can do it on planes, waiting for appontments, etc. Once you are into it you get only 9 moves to use all 25 letters. My goal is to see how many moves I can conserve and still solve the puzzle. My best was I solved in 4 moves. Those Q, J, X, V, and Z letters are SUPER hard to use. I also like to forego the easy words and go for 6 or more letters. This game is awesome! My two grandsons ages 6 & 8 also love it so much I had to get another version Word Jewels 2 they can play so I could keep my level (483) as it is a cumulative scoring system.

Challenges the Brain

I have been playing this for years and love it. Truly the kind of game that I feel keeps the mind sharp. I create my own goals like trying to achieve a ten letter word; just got my first nine letter word last week.

Great Game👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I love this game. My family used to take turns on the family Ipad and play this game. It brings back some memories and I enjoy it. So I would definitely say get this game with no hesitation. Enjoy 👋🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
