What is WordFeud
Wordfeud is the lesser known version of Scrabble and Words with Friends. Wordfeud is a multiplayer word game. It was created by 28 year old Norweigan Hakon Bertheussen. After its release, it had 10,000 downloads in under 24 hours. Today, this number has reached millions. Users can play with their own friends or with randomized opponents, and have the ability to play up to 30 games at once! Even cooler is that this game can be played using the Danish, Dutch, English, French, Norwegian, Spanish, and Swedish dictionaries!
The rules are similar to those of Words with Friends and Scrabble. However, Wordfeud is a bit different in the sense that it allows players to customize their own game board. At the beginning of the game, users can choose between a standard board or a random board. This game board is 15-by-15 tiles. Each player is then handed 7 tiles. When playing words, words can be played horizontally and vertically, but not backwards or from the bottom up. You have 72 hours to play a word after your opponent does, or you forfeit. If you are able to use all 7 tiles in a word, you gain an extra 40 points!
Play Wordfeud as a way to strengthen your Scrabble skills, Words with Friends speed, and overall word knowledge. If you are sick of the classic Scrabble game, Wordfeud is a good way to spice things up. Who knows, you may even make a new friend along the way!
