Better than Boggle!

The Ultimate Word Game.

With Word Challenge, you compete against LEX, the dreaded Word Master, whose 90,000 word lexicon will delight, amaze and challenge you with unusual words.

Sharpen your vocabulary skills.

Test and improve your vocabulary skills while you learn to outsmart the computer. Challenge a friend to play the same game against LEX and see who wins!
