Avoid the delays, cheaters, and other frustrations of online Scrabble by playing it and other classic word games against your Android device, courtesy of Classic Words Free. More than a basic rendition of the board game, Classic Words Free lets you play Scrabble, Words With Friends, and Wordfeud in Solitaire mode. With six levels to choose from, anyone can play.

Pros

No humans, just Androids: Playing against your phone or tablet avoids the waiting, registration, and (best of all) drama of online gaming forums. You can play Classic Words Free anytime, anywhere.

Parlez-vous? You can play in French, Italian, Spanish, German, or Dutch, or three different English word lists.

Lucky you: Your opponent knows every word in the English language, but you can exclude rare words or bad draws in the app's preferences. We could also enable automatic definitions, show or hide special tile colors, and enable AutoZoom.

Cons

Ad-supported: There are banner ads, which can detract from the user experience, but these were, for the most part, unobtrusive.

Bottom Line

Online word games are hugely popular, and you probably won't have any trouble finding actual people to play against. But when you want to go solo, Classic Words Free is ready, willing, and more than able to challenge your vocabulary and thinking skills.

Choose the skill level of the computer (from beginner to expert), pick a word list (English word lists include TWL and SOWPODS official lexicons), and use your strategy skills and vocabulary to try and defeat the Droid.

Classic Words gameplay is classical to crosswords board games: create and place words on the board and boost your score by placing letters on the high scoring Double Letter, Double Word, Triple Letter and Triple Word squares.

Use all 7 letters from your rack to play a Bingo and get a 50 points bonus.

This game is a great time killer for all fans of board games and strategy games. It is also an educational game that will allow kids (and adults) to improve their spelling and vocabulary.

Thanks to the fast reactivity and variable skill of the computer and quality word lists, Classic Words is used by many Scrabble enthusiasts to play quick training matches and learn new words from the computer's moves.

Unlike with multiplayer board games where some dishonest players use anagram solvers, there is no cheating possible when playing solitaire... Letters and blanks are always picked randomly, and the computer's artificial intelligence does not have more information than you do.

Only your tactics and creativity can make the difference...

Will you play strategically enough to outwit the computer and its extensive vocabulary?
