Play and Learn with Text Twist
Who would have thought that enriching a person’s vocabulary could be as fun as playing a computer game? Gone are the days when kids would complain about their teachers or parents telling them to read the dictionary and learn new words everyday. Now that there are tons of computer games on the Internet that are both fun and educational, kids will always be looking forward to learning new words everyday.
Text Twist is one of the many popular word games on the Internet today. In this game, the player is being tested of his or her ability to come up with as many words as he or she can from a set that contains six to seven letters. There are points given for every word formed out of the letters from the set. Greater points are given if the player can form words with more than three letters.
In order to move on to the next round of Text Twist, the player must come up with one word out of the six or seven letters from the given set on that particular round. It may sound easy and simple but the time limit for every round adds thrill, pressure and excitement to the game. A player who fails to guess the 6 or 7-letter-word will not be allowed to move on to the next round and will have to try again.
Text Twist can be played by children, adults and just about anyone who loves word games. There is no need for players to buy board games as it can be played online free of charge on websites like Yahoo! Games, MSN Games and Gamehouse. For those who do not have Internet connection, they can have it installed on their computers and play anytime they want.
It is also a perfect game to play on a weekend spent with the whole family or on a boring sleepover at a friend’s house. Even those who are stressed from work can take some time off and play Text Twist to de-stress and learn a couple of new words without having to open the dictionary.
Playing computer word games are not just for fun. The best thing about playing Text Twist is that after playing a few rounds, no player would feel like he has wasted his precious time on a computer game because it was stress-busting, entertaining and most of all, educational.
