My word, another puzzler
Tuesday, 21st March, 2017
A GOOD word puzzle is a great way to keep the brain active - and something new on the scene is always welcome.
Enter Educe, a word game app designed to keep your synapses firing.
Created by Melbourne psychiatrist Rod Smith and his wife Janice, the game gets users to build new words within and around other words.
It all starts with a three-letter word, then other players start stealing words by adding letters to the beginning, middle and end of words.
But the original letters must remain in the same order.
For example, if player one starts with sad, player two can create sand and player three can make stand.
Each time a word is stolen, the points go up.
Educe is available on Android and iPhone devices from Google Play and iTunes.
It's free without ads for the first three months, then users can either buy an ad-free version or continue using the free version with ads.
