It’s not just that word games and puzzles are fun (though, they are!) they are also great for your mental capacity. By spending a few minutes a day playing Words With Friends, or solving other word puzzles, you are both helping retain previous knowledge, as well as adding new knowledge. Take a look at some of the cool benefits word brain teasers provide!
Even though this one is common sense, it remains one of the most important benefits, the more word games and puzzles you interact with, the more words you will end up knowing. If your opponent in Words With Friends beats you with a late-game play of QUIXOTIC (adj: Not sensible about practical matters) for 28 points, you can be sure you will remember that word for your next game, so you can use it yourself!
Spelling is tricky. This is something even the author of this article, who writes for a living, can attest to. Word games are perfect for sharpening your spelling skills; you need to figure out the correct spelling of a word before Words With Friends will accept it as a legal play. But, after enough time, even the most hopeless spellers will find their skills improving!
In order to solve word puzzles and win word games, you’ll constantly be relying on your memory. All of those new vocabulary words and proper spellings, which we mentioned in the above tips, will come in handy as you tackle new puzzles and games. But, these skills will only help if you can remember them!
Anyone who has spent time playing word games knows the level of concentration they require. Play just one game of Words With Friends and you’ll know the sensation of arranging and rearranging your rack of tiles in hopes of making a higher-scoring word appear before your eyes. Also, we all know the feeling of seeing a better move that we could have made, just moments after making our play. It only takes a few mistakes like that until you hunker down and concentrate on every turn of the game!
Even in the heat of a competitive game of Words With Friends, there is a certain relaxation in playing. With no timer, no pressure to play, you can devote yourself fully to the game. Take as long or as little time as you need to complete the puzzle or make your move, it’s all up to you!
Christmas is traditionally a time to reunite with your family and friends. This makes it all the more noticeable when certain loved ones aren’t able to make it home, or if we aren’t able to ourselves. Games like Words With Friends, which can be played asynchronously, are perfect for staying in touch, even from afar.
Sometimes it’s as simple as having fun, and word games are perfect for that, too! Finding that perfect move in Word With Friends, or the solution to a word puzzle unquestionably lets off a jolt of joy, no matter how many times you’ve done it. So, even if you aren’t looking for any of the benefits listed above, you can settle into a game of Words With Friends simply because it’s fun!
