How many words can your students form from the ones given in the box? Do they have a huge enough vocabulary to form complex words that would give them higher points? Are they fast enough to fill up their word list before the clock runs out… and before a rival student group steals their letters?
Word Magic is reminiscent to the classic Boggle game, except that the letters forming the words do not have to be adjacent to each other. When the player forms his word and clicks on the “GO” button, the chosen letters are then replaced with others.
Though the game can be played in single player mode (where a student, or a group of students, try to collect enough points from their words within the given time), it also has a multiplayer mode, where the game automatically matches your students against other players from another class… or school… or even another country! The multiplayer game is then played in real time, where students race to use a letter before their rivals do; if they did end up using the same letter, the points for the word is forfeited!
How good is your class against what could possibly be the world? Perhaps a tournament could be arranged to find out!
