About Word Games

Although The Problem Site began as a place to share math problems and solutions, the selection of educational word games is by far one of the most popular sections of the site. This section of the site began years ago with our hangman game with a dictionary of over 17,000 words (and, incidentally, we've since then added a version of hangman that cheats, and a less gruesome version of hangman in which a picture is revealed as the word is guessed!)

After Hangman, several other fun and simple word games were added, including our jumble-like scrambled word game and our Secret Word Game, which is like Mastermind with words instead of colors.

If you've ever played a game where you have to guess a word based on the numbers on a telephone pad, we've got that game...but we also took it a step further and added a game where you have to guess a word based on numbers and punctuation on a blackberry keypad!

Our Word Grid puzzle looks like a crossword, but with a twist, and CrossSearch is our very own cross between a word search and a crossword puzzle.

For those who like a bit more of a challenge, you can check out our Four Word Scramble game in which you have to unjumble four words from their constituent letters.
Finally, let's not forget our printable jumbles, word searches and related word searches (made from your very own word lists), our bizarre vocabulary quiz (the vocabulary is bizarre, not the quiz!), and our spelling game for young children!
