Word Joust with your friends, family, or random opponent by sending a word for them to guess. Make sure to pick a good one, because once they accept it’s a race to see who can guess the opponent’s word first.

Word Joust will let you know how many letters in your guess are in your opponent’s word. It’s up to you to use that information to crack the code and defeat your opponent!

START a game by selecting a word, joust mode, and opponent type.
SELECT a friend from your list or invite others to play.
MAKE a new friend by using random joust mode.
FORM your strategy with your guesses and keyboard highlights.
WIN the game and show off how smart you are.

Competitive and Engaging

Had the opportunity to beta test Word Joust. One of my favorite apps. Period. My friends and I are seriously addicted. I enjoy it most in person with friends because each game takes a good amount of thinking and games can run too long if your opponent isn’t giving it their full attention.

There is quite a bit of skill involved in Word Joust, and enough luck to keep me coming back and trying to prove I’m the best among my friends.

Must download - Best word game out there

Legit the most addicting game I’ve played in a LONG time- all my friends are now converts and getting competitive on it.

Been playing for a while now and never gets boring, tons of fun and gets your brain thinking too. I couldn’t recommend it more highly, you have to download now so that you can play it yourself!

THIS GAME IS PURE GOLD. best new word game since Words With Friends!!!! Even better than candy crush! Super addicting (but not so much that it keeps you up at night). Brings out the competitive nature in your least competitive friends.

I like that you only have 24 hours for each move so that your friends can’t leave you hanging!!
