Description

SpellStack is how you decide who your smartest friend is. It's not enough to have the vocabulary of a 19th century poet, but you have to have the smarts to make sure that your beautiful use of "epicaricacy" isn't shattered right in front of you. Combining the best parts of Connect 4, and Scrabble, tactically plan how to show your friends that it's not just what you spell but how you spell it. Steal the other player's letters, break their words all while defending your own. The ultimate test of smarts that lets you easily find friends on Facebook and Twitter for a multiplayer battle of wits. And if that's not enough, we come with several levels of AI and brain scratching puzzles to test your mettle against.
