Letterpress – a word game
If you are interested in finding a fun new game to enjoy with your friends on the iPhone, Letterpress is an extremely fun and competitive strategy and word game that can be played with friends.
The idea of this application is to quickly find words using the letters that are available on the game board. Each time you are able to find a word the spaces in which the letters that made up the word were found will be colored in your team color. The object is to completely fill the board with your team color by utilizing each space on the board to make up your words. The challenge and strategy lies in making sure that your board and your spaces remain claimed. Just as a spaces claimed new letters will be filled in and the other player will have an opportunity to create words out of these existing spaces as well. By finding words, stealing tiles and coloring the board you can work to be your friends as well as match make with other people online to enjoy this great iOS application.
The game also keeps a record of your turns and allows you to play several different games at once so that you can continue on with many different games and always have a player with you who is willing to play. Some applications can leave you waiting for other players turns but using Letterpress ensures that you can keep starting new games to always have an active game running when you want to play.
