How does Word Mania work?

Word Mania is the ultimate word building competition. Students are given three minutes to build as many words as possible from the board of 15 letter tiles. By dragging and rearranging letter tiles into the word panel players build, extend and rebuild words in a race against the clock.

Plenty of fun features

Word Mania has a range of features designed to raise the stakes with Gold Tiles, Diamond Tiles and Word Multipliers for higher scores. Students can also test their word building abilities against their friends with the Word Buddy Challenge, earn badges for specific achievements and high scores and create a Mini-Beast avatar.
