[ Edited ]

I am addicted to crosswords.i subscribe to the new york times puzzles.  Love the mini and regular crossword daily.  But they have this  word puzzle called spelling Bee.  Oh my it is great.  They give seven letters , you have make as many words as you can..., each day is different. Range from 30 to 200 words.  Each word  has to include center letter.  It is fun on the ipad.  Otherwise i find crosswords games everywhere

I LOVE them! They've always been one of my favorite things. The Sporcle website one wonderful poster here recommended to me years ago posts one every Sunday. I always reward myself for the week by doing it!   Smiley Happy

Yes.  I've always loved word games.  I play Scrabble online everyday just to keep my brain sharp (or so I tell myself!).   I keep crossword books in a rack next to my 'TV chair' so I can work puzzles while I watch TV.  I buy those variety puzzle books ($cheap$) to work while I sit on the porch in my rocking chair during warm weather.   I can't just "sit" - I have to be doing something!

Lots of options online for games and puzzles.  Real lifesavers.  Most can still be played with no WiFi, a consideration too.
