Best word game
by Tim Ritter on 2019/10/12 06:22
Very enjoyable play and great for picking up curiosities while passing the time. Definitely some challenging parts. Update. I have enjoyed many levels. Until they came up with "World National Parks" 1 and 2. Love all the language and trivia of the other levels but these seem to be a clear ploy to get people to buy coins. Disappointed I may have to give up on the game. Not planning to play the daily game to buy the unlock on other levels. Crazy.
What are the rules?
by SF gen xer on 2019/10/08 15:42
Used to be straightforward game. Now there are new symbols and I can’t figure out what each does.
Good game BUT.....
by Ko719 on 2019/10/02 23:59
I like this game a lot.....but some of the themes are absolutely ridiculous. I just completed the language one......how the hell are people supposed to know words in a dozen different languages? Seems like they put these absurd themes so people will buy more coins.

Not what I expected
by AllAboutDogs on 2019/09/05 18:01
Imo, this game is misnamed. It’s more “subject genius.” My interest was to extend my vocabulary, but this game covers random names and subjects. It would help if it allowed the player to choose the subject or when to quit and choose a different one, but it forces the player to complete about 12+/- levels of games of a subject before it moves you to another one. You don’t get to choose the next subject, it’s given to you whether it’s one you enjoy or not. I’m not bored enough to put up with this.
NEED UNENDING PUZZLES
by Carils7 on 2019/09/05 06:34
I WOULD DEFINITELY RATED THIS GAME A “5” IF THERE WERE MORE PUZZLES TO SOLVE. I WORKED HARD ON A FEW OF THE CATEGORIES TO COMPLETE ALL OF THEM....ONLY TO FIND THERE ARE NOOO MORE PUZZLES TO SOLVE ....SOOOO DISAPPOINTING!!

Worked fine until last update. Now no matter what I touch - to open daily puzzle or go to current level, the app shuts down. Need a fix ASAP so I can keep my current level or I will need to find another word app. Too frustrating.

I really like the game. The trivia after each board is interesting. The only thing I would change with this game and what keeps me from rating this a five is that even after you buy a pack, it doesn’t move to the top of the list. Each time you play, you have to scroll and search for the pack you want to play.

Coins shortages
by Kitt-T on 2019/05/19 19:53
Ability to obtain free coins is very limited. However, the ability to BUY coins is just too apparent! Just too greedy for my much-labored coins! I could have more fun without the anxiety of waiting for coins!

by Shopper084 on 2019/05/03 05:47
Recently developers have changed the number of coins received after solving the daily puzzle. It used to be 20, now it is 10. Very disappointed because if you get stuck you’ll have to wait & solve two daily puzzles before you can buy a genius card. I guess they want you to pay real money for coins....i did a couple times but like anything with some on line games, it can get too costly to continue. I am contemplating deleting it soon because waiting two days to get one clue is starting to aggrivate me & games are for relaxing my body.

Finally, a word game that TEACHES you about the words you’re playing! I’m just starting but so far it seems very user-friendly. I could play all day. Problem: the letters/squares are not responsive enough to touch. It takes up valuable time to get the squares to accept a letter. Problem: You cannot skip a subject. And you HAVE TO get all the obscure words! No mercy!

Puzzles vary widely in difficulty depending on your knowledge of the topic. If you know nothing you can really burn a lot of points getting hints. Many times you really have to employ divergent thinking, as the answers are not always what you think they will be. They really should write a FAQ for the game - I have completed many, many levels, and I still do not know if there is a way to skip topics. Be sure to do the daily puzzle to build up your point bank.

Great trivia crossword puzzle and learning all kinds of new things I never would’ve known! The earned genius cards are very helpful.The hint button is not in a good place though, I keep accidentally hitting it, and i’m not sure if a hint is worth 50 coins as could pay to play a genius card which is more helpful. But all around pretty good self paced game. The genius cards info and the information at the end of each puzzle are pretty cool.

I love this game so much, and I’m really bummed that I’ve completed it. The puzzle topics were quite varied, and the difficulty level varied as well which I liked. Just when I was out of coins, I’d get the daily puzzle correct, or guess the mystery coin letter in a puzzle. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a true word game rather than a spelling game.

I like the game but it's way too expensive to play. Every time you need a hint that 25 coins. You almost never earn more than a few coins in a puzzle. There no real way to earn coins. Using the cards is also very costly most are 30 coins some are more. You earn the cards but then have to pay to use then. Insane. And if you want to play anothercategory it's 150 coins. So you are stuck with one puzzle.

by Nikkitytom on 2018/11/08 10:35
Addition ... The “factoids” offered at the end of each game are terrific. Even for someone addicted to little obscure facts, these are a rare treat. Enjoying this game enormously. But can’t seem to find details on how things work ... I’ve learned by trial and error, which has cost me coins. I’d suggest a little more generosity with those coins. How about a few coins reward at the end of each level. Or a surprise bonus for a particularly difficult word. When I exhaust my coins, I’ll probably move on ... don’t want to fall into the “purchase” trap. But meanwhile, it’s one of the best word games out there. Thumbs up! Update ... I’ve completed all the puzzles and eagerly await the new ones each week. I now rarely need coins and make sure I do the daily puzzle for 20 coins ( if you don’t miss a day ). I learned to never “ buy my way out” of a puzzle because you only get to move ahead one time and then have to go back to finish the one you paid a penalty to get out of. Don’t ever do that. Just pay for a couple of hints. And never use “sprinkle” ... a total waste. Choose “vowels” instead. The puzzles are brilliantly constructed with related terms and associations positioned adjacent to each other in the puzzle. Best online game ever! 👍👍👍👍👍
Challenging word play
by fwygantGrey on 2018/07/05 02:36
A real challenge. My only critique is that once one is stuck there is no avenue forward. Don’t get me wrong, there are some tile checks and “factoids” embedded in the puzzle, and one can earn bonus cards (like fee vowel placement, free placement of several letter, etc) but some could use a tiny bit more introduction / hint at the subcategory.... BUT, I say this probably because I am currently stuck. One either solves the puzzle, Googles like mad and waits a couple days for inspiration, or one quits. So far the first two and not the latter. Frankly, this is the most fun and challenge I have had with word puzzles, and I am normally not a crossword fan. Try it, no really try it and you will like it.
Challenging but fun
by Khow2 on 2018/08/16 12:41
Love this app. It is challenging but fun. Love the facts added in. They now give you coins to solve the puzzle of the day which is awesome because you can get stuck on some puzzles. Great customer service.. very responsive to any questions. You can play on multiple devices too. Some of the categories are hard if you are now familiar with them, such as classical music for me so it would be nice maybe when you get to the end to them a free hint could appear.. maybe reveal the theme. I know they want to you spend money on coins but some don’t want to and that would help some... just a little hint.. But all in all great game!
Game is addictive and a learning tool
by Verikino on 2018/07/07 17:15
I enjoy this game a lot! Beware that the “reveal theme” button is in a bad spot if you “rest” your thumb during play - you may accidentally hit it which will cost you 25 coins. I would suggest making it perhaps a genius card. Game is fun, and it’s always nice learning new things. Great concept, and my husband and I play as a team sometimes. Could be great family fun. I’m only giving four stars because you can’t move on until you pass each category or keep buying new ones. Some can be very difficult, so you’re stuck. Maybe you could be given three free “pass” cards and then option to buy them with coins. Customer service is awesome!
Challenging, fun, enlightening
by Vickijoh on 2018/09/14 13:51
This is the most interesting word game I’ve played so far. I have really enjoyed learning about the categories, figuring out what to look up, and being surprised by what I did (and didn’t) know. Patience helps, as I have had to stop working a category and play the daily challenge a few days to accumulate enough coins for hints before continuing. My only major problem is ads with sound. I have to mute my phone so I don’t disturb others, and I forget to turn it back on. Wish I could mute the game without muting everything on the phone. Keep the categories coming. Happily waiting for the next one.

Word Genius is about the best game/app I have ever used. It has so much to offer. First it is a compilation of Crossword Puzzles, which requires good Spelling Skills. And if a person has a problem with spelling, the hints offer help to get the words spelled correctly. Then in each category that is offered to the consumer, there’s all kinds of extra information that is given to the player. I love to learn new information! So this game/app is highly Educational, as well as interesting. It makes learning fun!!! I cannot praise this game/app enough. I must add that the in-app purchases of “hints” are very reasonably priced. The Genius Cards are more helpful than I initially noticed they were. All in all, I would recommend this game/app to anyone who would like to spend time playing a game. The natural consequence of playing this game/app is a person will always take away new knowledge whenever they leave. Thank you to all who have participated in the creation of “Word Genius.” And keep up the good work! Jonnine W. A Fan
Absolutely my favorite
by Arizona transplant on 2018/09/12 13:03
This is a great app! I’ve learned, I’ve laughed and I’ve gotten frustrated but worked it out! It can be very hard in some puzzles, however so far I have found my way to finish every puzzle. I do like that you are able to go back and “redo” puzzles to get more genius cards. If you love crosswords, jigsaws, or any game app, I highly recommend this app. If you think you are really smart and like a challenge this is it. Think you’re not so smart, this helps you become smarter. This is definitely my favorite game, puzzle, app ever!
Fun but why the ads?
by hannahnicoleee96 on 2018/11/30 20:42
I love this game. my mom & I both play it daily (and I normally have to end up helping her out on a few puzzles here and there) but I'm wondering why when I play I have to sit and watch an ad every couple puzzles, yet my mom has no ads?? my mom didn't buy hers and neither did I. my mom connected hers to facebook so I thought maybe that was it, so I connected mine and I still have ads. I would get used to it but it's annoying that I have ads and my mom doesn't. Wish they would fix that. The ads are annoying and make me not want to play as much. Other than that, it's a fun game to play when you're bored.
Only Word Puzzle for Me
by Kiwilaurel on 2019/02/14 22:53
I have played almost every word puzzle that comes along. This is my favorite. I don’t enjoy puzzles that include all the unknown 2 letter words in the dictionary. I like puzzles that make me think and review things I should know. Some of these puzzles are difficult - ex. In the Olympic Games set, I was draining my brain trying to figure out what sport category we were working on and was getting nowhere. Finally realized it was the names of cities where the games have been held. I look forward to these puzzles!

Very disappointed because if you get stuck you’ll have to wait & solve two daily puzzles before you can buy a genius card. I guess they want you to pay real money for coins....i did a couple times but like anything with some on line games, it can get too costly to continue. I am contemplating deleting it soon because waiting two days to get one clue is starting to aggrivate me & games are for relaxing my body.
Enjoyable game
by AliceKa on 2019/03/28 21:16
Puzzles vary widely in difficulty depending on your knowledge of the topic. If you know nothing you can really burn a lot of points getting hints. Many times you really have to employ divergent thinking, as the answers are not always what you think they will be. They really should write a FAQ for the game - I have completed many, many levels, and I still do not know if there is a way to skip topics. Be sure to do the daily puzzle to build up your point bank.
Addictive and confusing
by ;)cat on 2018/08/14 04:23
I love this game but I couldn’t give it 5 stars because I can’t seem to find the rules anywhere. I don’t like having to use 10 coins every time I need a hint. And I don’t understand how to use the cards. It would be great if you added a “how to play”or “help” button! Other than those issues, I really love how it makes my brain work. And the trivia is interesting. Someone else said that he or she is really learning how to google better through this game, and I agree. Overall lots of fun but could use some tweaks!
Unique Crossword Game
by Moogy45 on 2018/08/28 04:03
I’m really enjoying this game because of all the extra things I’m learning. Each puzzle has a theme, but you don’t know what it is until you fill in a special square. There is a square that shows a short essay with info about the theme and always includes a hint or two. You can accumulate points which you can use for more hints. The crosswords only intersect in a couple places, so you don’t have many clues. This games is challenging and fun.
Better Be On Your Toes
by Giz widget on 2018/07/24 03:49
This game can really test you. There are many topics and the correct word can be elusive. It is helpful to earn coins and the genius cards. There is a twist as to playing the game which makes it quite challenging and that I won’t reveal. You will have to play it for yourself. A true test of determination. Strategy is also an important aspect. Word Genius is addicting. It is a serious twist on crossword puzzles and keeps you coming back for more.
Trivial Pursuit in a crossword
by Parrot Path on 2018/10/05 20:23
This app makes me smile when I work on it. The wise old owl makes it fun though it is incredibly challenging. What fun this series is. Hints cost tokens but you never have to buy them if you just wait a day for more bonus games. The knowledge base is incredible and I learn from every chapter. Stories of famous people lend clues to the board. A great challenge and learning opportunity. No ads either!! This is one of the best word apps!!
Latest update
by bxsci71 on 2019/01/08 01:45
Thanks so much for more levels. However the Reveal Theme button is too easy to touch by accident. There should be an alert asking if you really want to spend 15 coins to continue. I lost coins I didn’t want to use. Please redesign. I guess I meant 25 coins Update: still not happy placement of Reveal Theme button but LOVE the chance to earn coins with daily puzzles. First thing I do every morning 😁
Need directions but love it anyway
by Kaybeeb on 2018/08/28 05:35
I fumbled through a few puzzles as i was learning. Puzzles get progressively harder. Keeps my brain working. I LOVE IT! Sometimes on my ipad mini the things that cost coins are too easily touched accidentally and you lose some of the coins. This is proven to be a problem. Perhaps the hint button along with the theme and other buttons could be moved to the Top?
Challenging fun but open up the cash flow
by Homecooking4252 on 2018/09/17 23:08
This is a refreshing use of crossword puzzles however BEWARE they give little instruction or the ability to go back to review how points are earned and accumulated to earn extra rewards. The daily puzzle to earn 20 points is an insignificant amount. DO NOT START PLAYING UNLESS YOU ENJOY SPENDING MONEY ON EXTRA COINS. I unwittingly used up some of my freebies without knowing it. See earlier comment re lack of instructions and ability to reread. Perhaps they could be more generous with free coins. I will watch a video but it should be more than 5 coins. And 20 coins on the daily puzzle does not get you very far on a difficult puzzle.
New addiction
by Frank o see on 2018/08/13 02:37
I love this game! My only criticism is some of the themes of the puzzles are very obscure and unless you are an expert in the category, it can be rather hard to solve. Also, The player should be asked to confirm if they really meant to hit the reveal fame button along the bottom as I have inadvertently done so twice and it has taken 25 points from my total. That said, I’m still loving this game!
Fun and educational
by arkibet on 2018/07/12 09:14
Huh- this was an app that was an advertisement. I took the bait and didn't regret it. The game play is simple but it's still challenging. There isn't endless advertisements or push to spend money. I'll probably buy a few coins at some point just to support the app. The best part has been their trivia which has been really fun to learn! This app has been a surprising delight.
Word genius
by Spiral Math on 2019/04/11 08:23
Finally, a word game that TEACHES you about the words you’re playing! I’m just starting but so far it seems very user-friendly. I could play all day. Problem: the letters/squares are not responsive enough to touch. It takes up valuable time to get the squares to accept a letter. Problem: You cannot skip a subject. And you HAVE TO get all the obscure words! No mercy!
Word Genius
by grammasm on 2018/09/14 16:58
I like the challenge. I’m learning new things. So far so good! Thanks! This such a nice switch from other word games. Months later: I still say it’s the best, if I could read it a 10 star I would! Hi suffered a major brain bleed stroke a year and a half ago. This game really helps me, is not too difficult so it encourages me, and it is free. Does not have too many silly Advertisements.
Good potential but...
by Mfm831 on 2018/08/14 01:29
I really enjoy the questions and the random trivia. However, I have to agree with other reviewers regarding getting stuck with no coins and ONLY option is to buy more. I know you want to make money on your app but most games allow you to view ads for coins, get coins for your time (what’s the point in getting hundreds of burgers/trophies/whatever if they don’t even mean anything?) I’ll be uninstalling this since I can’t keep progressing. Nice try.
Addicting!
by mhgrr on 2018/11/09 17:56
This is the best word game app available! It is challenging but if you take your time and have a pencil and paper to help you along, eventually you’ll complete the puzzle. But I’ve finished all of the available games! I spent some coins (I can’t remember but I think 150) to get two more games: Presidents I and Presidents II. Will there be more games available soon?
Top 3 of All Time
by betsbee0203 on 2019/03/11 17:52
I love this game so much, and I’m really bummed that I’ve completed it. The puzzle topics were quite varied, and the difficulty level varied as well which I liked. Just when I was out of coins, I’d get the daily puzzle correct, or guess the mystery coin letter in a puzzle. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a true word game rather than a spelling game.
Better than average
by LaurenLBK on 2018/06/20 17:47
The programmers for this game actually used a dictionary and good English — not always true for this type of game. Hints are a reasonable cost, while the challenge of each level is high — also not always true. You learn interesting facts along the way. If you pay attention closely, you’ll often find solution clues in the information at each level. Fun, and worth your time.
Challenging Game for Word Lovers and Trivia Buffs
by Haogro on 2018/04/03 16:26
This is a well-designed game that covers a variety of topics that will challenge everyone. Information about topics is given as a reward (look for hints), which is an unusual twist to this addictive game. Starting and stopping is no problem, even though there is a timer. Various strategies can be used to stockpile coins for future hints, as needed.
Decent
by gingergabi on 2018/10/15 18:26
Game is fun and uses a themed puzzles to allow users to more easily solve individual words. Each puzzle is timed and if that time runs out you must redo the puzzle before you are able to proceed. One glaring issue with the time mechanic is that it is paired with a poor touch responsiveness. The timer will continue to count down for 15-20 seconds until the end of the game whereas the tiles may require a second between moves for the next to be selected. It’s infuriating to say the least and it needs to be adjusted.
Best word game
by Tim Ritter on 2019/10/12 06:22
Very enjoyable play and great for picking up curiosities while passing the time. Definitely some challenging parts. Update. I have enjoyed many levels. Until they came up with "World National Parks" 1 and 2. Love all the language and trivia of the other levels but these seem to be a clear ploy to get people to buy coins. Disappointed I may have to give up on the game. Not planning to play the daily game to buy the unlock on other levels. Crazy.
Almost..., but not quite
by 39nana on 2018/08/04 22:22
The game is excellent, except for the fact that it regularly has words that are completely obscure. So you’re left with having to guess at the solution. What’s the point? It’s challenging enough with words that are more well known. Wait. That probably is the point. Forces you to buy answers. Too bad! I would have given it five stars otherwise.
Fun puzzles
by Wordsgonewild on 2018/06/25 12:02
Love this game. The puzzles have a common theme to keep them interesting. The daily puzzle gives a daily clue that helps determine the theme and keeps the solve from being too frustrating. Good exercise in word recognition, like playing Wheel of Fortune word puzzles without the spins and giving turns to others on the guess work.

by Mommwomma on 2018/09/10 16:53
We love this challenging and very informative game. The facts are so interesting. After getting to the 4th level it crashes. It completely cuts off as soon as it turns on. We uninstalled and now it crashes in the first level. Please help! We love this game! We have it installed on an IPhone 6 Plus.
Excellent game

I cannot say enough about this addictive game! I love it! It’s just that I finish all the new levels in one day and I have to wait for new levels for a whole week or more! I am sure it takes time to develop these levels but I eagerly await the new ones . Thank you for developing this wonderful app!
Fun app
by Coxzilla6969 on 2018/06/10 09:21
The puzzles are just challenging enough to keep you interested and not make you too frustrated. Coins are sometimes too hard to earn. More direction early on would have helped to know when and how to use. Just started daily puzzles and they seem fun as well. The hints in the beginning can be helpful without giving away too many clues
Addictive, fun and I also learn!
by JuliannaMD on 2018/07/30 14:49
I have really enjoyed these puzzles and can’t get enough of them. I enjoy puzzling out the words without many hints and also learning new things. I am “curious” about how many puzzles there are? Do they stop after “ Toon Time.” I don’t seem to have access to any after that one.
Fun and Challenging
by ShleeD08 on 2019/02/03 16:17
What I like about this game is I can just play and stop whenever. I don’t feel like I have to commit to a huge chunk of time to play so I can pop on just to do something for a few minutes or play for hours. I love the challenge, but hate when I’m stuck on a category I don’t really like. Also, takes forever to gain coins it seems.
Fun and educational
by wordelle on 2018/08/18 15:30
I’m hooked! I like the challenge of the crossword and I look forward to the factoids at the end of each puzzle. And the bonus cards keep me going when I need a hint. I even find myself researching more on a particular topic on the internet while I am trying to solve a puzzle.
Grrrrrrr
by Bobbineye on 2018/06/18 01:49
When i first saw this game, it was advertised in landscape mode. So it looked like a good game, so I downloaded it. Then I opened it just to find its in portrait mode only. i have to keep my Ipad plugged in or the battery gets depleted quickly. I can’t play anything in portrait mode because I would have to hold it in that mode and my Ipad is way to hard to hold. Why can’t you developers make it possible to play in either mode. I just delete all the games without even trying them when they are in portrait mode only.
My new favorite game
by Mopstix on 2018/06/24 23:48
This honestly is such a great game! A combination puzzle and internet treasure hunt, looking for information that might help in completing each themed puzzle. Being rewarded with interesting facts, both trivial and important, is a terrific incentive to play! The range of topics is impressive. I eagerly await each new set of puzzles—please keep them coming!
Fun game
by Mike7J7O7 on 2018/05/26 18:30
As game progresses it gets more challenging, to the point you may lose hope in solving. But fret not because all that is needed is to plug and chug through combinations of letters or read the clues and you’ll be on to solving puzzle! You’ll also learn interesting facts about places, things, people, etc. Excellent game overall!
Fun and educational!

Update glitch
by plkbk on 2019/01/10 07:34
I love this game and have been playing it for many months. But after the latest update it has developed a glitch. It crashes constantly. On every single move. And it did the auto update yesterday, so I’ll have to wait until the next update to play again. It’s too annoying dealing with the crashes after every move.
Love this!
by Blue Loon on 2018/08/12 18:05
Great fun when you know something about the topic, just gotta use those genius cards when you don’t. (Took me awhile to figure out that you get a free play of each new genius card.) The factoids at the end of each puzzle are often startling and worthy of a screenshot, me thinks.
Not what I expected
by AllAboutDogs on 2019/09/05 18:01
Imo, this game is misnamed. It’s more “subject genius.” My interest was to extend my vocabulary, but this game covers random names and subjects. It would help if it allowed the player to choose the subject or when to quit and choose a different one, but it forces the player to complete about 12+/- levels of games of a subject before it moves you to another one. You don’t get to choose the next subject, it’s given to you whether it’s one you enjoy or not. I’m not bored enough to put up with this.

by Shopper084 on 2019/05/03 05:47
Recently developers have changed the number of coins received after solving the daily puzzle. It used to be 20, now it is 10. Very disappointed because if you get stuck you’ll have to wait & solve two daily puzzles before you can buy a genius card. I guess they want you to pay real money for coins....i did a couple times but like anything with some on line games, it can get too costly to continue. I am contemplating deleting it soon because waiting two days to get one clue is starting to aggrivate me & games are for relaxing my body.

If I don’t know a lot about a subject, it is very hard to pass the level; more helps or fewer coins for a help would be beneficial.

Very good but would like to see a change

Finally, a word game that TEACHES you about the words you’re playing! I’m just starting but so far it seems very user-friendly. I could play all day. Problem: the letters/squares are not responsive enough to touch. It takes up valuable time to get the squares to accept a letter. Problem: You cannot skip a subject. And you HAVE TO get all the obscure words! No mercy!

Puzzles vary widely in difficulty depending on your knowledge of the topic. If you know nothing you can really burn a lot of points getting hints. Many times you really have to employ divergent thinking, as the answers are not always what you think they will be. They really should write a FAQ for the game - I have completed many, many levels, and I still do not know if there is a way to skip topics. Be sure to do the daily puzzle to build up your point bank.

Great word puzzle And Great for learning random trivia!
by Spookems on 2019/03/12 15:53
Great trivia crossword puzzle and learning all kinds of new things I never would’ve known! The earned genius cards are very helpful.The hint button is not in a good place though, I keep accidentally hitting it, and i’m not sure if a hint is worth 50 coins as could pay to play a genius card which is more helpful. But all around pretty good self paced game. The genius cards info and the information at the end of each puzzle are pretty cool.
Top 3 of All Time

I love this game so much, and I’m really bummed that I’ve completed it. The puzzle topics were quite varied, and the difficulty level varied as well which I liked. Just when I was out of coins, I’d get the daily puzzle correct, or guess the mystery coin letter in a puzzle. I highly recommend this to anyone who wants a true word game rather than a spelling game.
Ads freeze iPad

by mitoubeau on 2019/02/28 23:09
I like the game but it's way too expensive to play. Every time you need a hint that 25 coins. You almost never earn more than a few coins in a puzzle. There no real way to earn coins. Using the cards is also very costly most are 30 coins some are more. You earn the cards but then have to pay to use then. Insane. And if you want to play anothercategory it's 150 coins. So you are stuck with one puzzle.

You get interesting facts and are challenged to finish crossword puzzles to obtain them. AND you are rated as to how quickly you can finish the puzzle. Quite different from other trivia games
Clever and fun
by Nikkitytom on 2018/11/08 10:35
Addition ... The “factoids” offered at the end of each game are terrific. Even for someone addicted to little obscure facts, these are a rare treat. Enjoying this game enormously. But can’t seem to find details on how things work ... I’ve learned by trial and error, which has cost me coins. I’d suggest a little more generosity with those coins. How about a few coins reward at the end of each level. Or a surprise bonus for a particularly difficult word. When I exhaust my coins, I’ll probably move on ... don’t want to fall into the “purchase” trap. But meanwhile, it’s one of the best word games out there. Thumbs up! Update ... I’ve completed all the puzzles and eagerly await the new ones each week. I now rarely need coins and make sure I do the daily puzzle for 20 coins ( if you don’t miss a day ). I learned to never “ buy my way out” of a puzzle because you only get to move ahead one time and then have to go back to finish the one you paid a penalty to get out of. Don’t ever do that. Just pay for a couple of hints. And never use “sprinkle” ... a total waste. Choose “vowels” instead. The puzzles are brilliantly constructed with related terms and associations positioned adjacent to each other in the puzzle. Best online game ever! 👍👍👍👍👍
Challenging word play
by fwygantGrey on 2018/07/05 02:36
A real challenge. My only critique is that once one is stuck there is no avenue forward. Don’t get me wrong, there are some tile checks and “factoids” embedded in the puzzle, and one can earn bonus cards (like fee vowel placement, free placement of several letter, etc) but some could use a tiny bit more introduction / hint at the subcategory.... BUT, I say this probably because I am currently stuck. One either solves the puzzle, Googles like mad and waits a couple days for inspiration, or one quits. So far the first two and not the latter. Frankly, this is the most fun and challenge I have had with word puzzles, and I am normally not a crossword fan. Try it, no really try it and you will like it.
Challenging but fun
by Khow2 on 2018/08/16 12:41
Love this app. It is challenging but fun. Love the facts added in. They now give you coins to solve the puzzle of the day which is awesome because you can get stuck on some puzzles. Great customer service.. very responsive to any questions. You can play on multiple devices too. Some of the categories are hard if you are now familiar with them, such as classical music for me so it would be nice maybe when you get to the end to them a free hint could appear.. maybe reveal the theme. I know they want to you spend money on coins but some don’t want to and that would help some... just a little hint.. But all in all great game!
Game is addictive and a learning tool
by Verikino on 2018/07/07 17:15
I enjoy this game a lot! Beware that the “reveal theme” button is in a bad spot if you “rest” your thumb during play - you may accidentally hit it which will cost you 25 coins. I would suggest making it perhaps a genius card. Game is fun, and it’s always nice learning new things. Great concept, and my husband and I play as a team sometimes. Could be great family fun. I’m only giving four stars because you can’t move on until you pass each category or keep buying new ones. Some can be very difficult, so you’re stuck. Maybe you could be given three free “pass” cards and then option to buy them with coins. Customer service is awesome!
Challenging, fun, enlightening
by Vickijoh on 2018/09/14 13:51
This is the most interesting word game I’ve played so far. I have really enjoyed learning about the categories, figuring out what to look up, and being surprised by what I did (and didn’t) know. Patience helps, as I have had to stop working a category and play the daily challenge a few days to accumulate enough coins for hints before continuing. My only major problem is ads with sound. I have to mute my phone so I don’t disturb others, and I forget to turn it back on. Wish I could mute the game without muting everything on the phone. Keep the categories coming. Happily waiting for the next one.

Word Genius is about the best game/app I have ever used. It has so much to offer. First it is a compilation of Crossword Puzzles, which requires good Spelling Skills. And if a person has a problem with spelling, the hints offer help to get the words spelled correctly. Then in each category that is offered to the consumer, there’s all kinds of extra information that is given to the player. I love to learn new information! So this game/app is highly Educational, as well as interesting. It makes learning fun!!! I cannot praise this game/app enough. I must add that the in-app purchases of “hints” are very reasonably priced. The Genius Cards are more helpful than I initially noticed they were. All in all, I would recommend this game/app to anyone who would like to spend time playing a game. The natural consequence of playing this game/app is a person will always take away new knowledge whenever they leave. Thank you to all who have participated in the creation of “Word Genius.” And keep up the good work! Jonnine W. A Fan
Absolutely my favorite
by Arizona transplant on 2018/09/12 13:03
This is a great app! I’ve learned, I’ve laughed and I’ve gotten frustrated but worked it out! It can be very hard in some puzzles, however so far I have found my way to finish every puzzle. I do like that you are able to go back and “redo” puzzles to get more genius cards. If you love crosswords, jigsaws, or any game app, I highly recommend this app. If you think you are really smart and like a challenge this is it. Think you’re not so smart, this helps you become smarter. This is definitely my favorite game, puzzle, app ever!
Fun but why the ads?
by hannahnicoleee96 on 2018/11/30 20:42
I love this game. my mom & I both play it daily (and I normally have to end up helping her out on a few puzzles here and there) but I'm wondering why when I play I have to sit and watch an ad every couple puzzles, yet my mom has no ads?? my mom didn't buy hers and neither did I. my mom connected hers to facebook so I thought maybe that was it, so I connected mine and I still have ads. I would get used to it but it's annoying that I have ads and my mom doesn't. Wish they would fix that. The ads are annoying and make me not want to play as much. Other than that, it's a fun game to play when you're bored.
Only Word Puzzle for Me
by Kiwilaurel on 2019/02/14 22:53
I have played almost every word puzzle that comes along. This is my favorite. I don’t enjoy puzzles that include all the unknown 2 letter words in the dictionary. I like puzzles that make me think and review things I should know. Some of these puzzles are difficult - ex. In the Olympic Games set, I was draining my brain trying to figure out what sport category we were working on and was getting nowhere. Finally realized it was the names of cities where the games have been held. I look forward to these puzzles!
Like it but .......
by Shopper084 on 2019/05/03 05:47
Recently developers have changed the number of coins received after solving the daily puzzle. It used to be 20, now it is 10. Very disappointed because if you get stuck you’ll have to wait & solve two daily puzzles before you can buy a genius card. I guess they want you to pay real money for coins....i did a couple times but like anything with some on line games, it can get too costly to continue. I am contemplating deleting it soon because waiting two days to get one clue is starting to aggrivate me & games are for relaxing my body.

by ;)cat on 2018/08/14 04:23
I love this game but I couldn’t give it 5 stars because I can’t seem to find the rules anywhere. I don’t like having to use 10 coins every time I need a hint. And I don’t understand how to use the cards. It would be great if you added a “how to play”or “help” button! Other than those issues, I really love how it makes my brain work. And the trivia is interesting. Someone else said that he or she is really learning how to google better through this game, and I agree. Overall lots of fun but could use some tweaks!
Unique Crossword Game
by Moogy45 on 2018/08/28 04:03
I’m really enjoying this game because of all the extra things I’m learning. Each puzzle has a theme, but you don’t know what it is until you fill in a special square. There is a square that shows a short essay with info about the theme and always includes a hint or two. You can accumulate points which you can use for more hints. The crosswords only intersect in a couple places, so you don’t have many clues. This games is challenging and fun.
Better Be On Your Toes
by Giz widget on 2018/07/24 03:49
This game can really test you. There are many topics and the correct word can be elusive. It is helpful to earn coins and the genius cards. There is a twist as to playing the game which makes it quite challenging and that I won’t reveal. You will have to play it for yourself. A true test of determination. Strategy is also an important aspect. Word Genius is addicting. It is a serious twist on crossword puzzles and keeps you coming back for more.

This app makes me smile when I work on it. The wise old owl makes it fun though it is incredibly challenging. What fun this series is. Hints cost tokens but you never have to buy them if you just wait a day for more bonus games. The knowledge base is incredible and I learn from every chapter. Stories of famous people lend clues to the board. A great challenge and learning opportunity. No ads either!! This is one of the best word apps!!
Latest update
by bxsci71 on 2019/01/08 01:45
Thanks so much for more levels. However the Reveal Theme button is too easy to touch by accident. There should be an alert asking if you really want to spend 15 coins to continue. I lost coins I didn’t want to use. Please redesign. I guess I meant 25 coins Update: still not happy placement of Reveal Theme button but LOVE the chance to earn coins with daily puzzles. First thing I do every morning 😁
Need directions but love it anyway
by Kaybeeb on 2018/08/28 05:35
I fumbled through a few puzzles as i was learning. Puzzles get progressively harder. Keeps my brain working. I LOVE IT! Sometimes on my ipad mini the things that cost coins are too easily touched accidentally and you lose some of the coins. This is proven to be a problem. Perhaps the hint button along with the theme and other buttons could be moved to the Top?
Challenging fun but open up the cash flow
by Homecooking4252 on 2018/09/17 23:08
This is a refreshing use of crossword puzzles however BEWARE they give little instruction or the ability to go back to review how points are earned and accumulated to earn extra rewards. The daily puzzle to earn 20 points is an insignificant amount. DO NOT START PLAYING UNLESS YOU ENJOY SPENDING MONEY ON EXTRA COINS. I unwittingly used up some of my freebies without knowing it. See earlier comment re lack of instructions and ability to reread. Perhaps they could be more generous with free coins. I will watch a video but it should be more than 5 coins. And 20 coins on the daily puzzle does not get you very far on a difficult puzzle.
New addiction
by Frank o see on 2018/08/13 02:37
I love this game! My only criticism is some of the themes of the puzzles are very obscure and unless you are an expert in the category, it can be rather hard to solve. Also, The player should be asked to confirm if they really meant to hit the reveal fame button along the bottom as I have inadvertently done so twice and it has taken 25 points from my total. That said, I’m still loving this game!

Huh- this was an app that was an advertisement. I took the bait and didn't regret it. The game play is simple but it's still challenging. There isn't endless advertisements or push to spend money. I'll probably buy a few coins at some point just to support the app. The best part has been their trivia which has been really fun to learn! This app has been a surprising delight.

by Mfm831 on 2018/08/14 01:29
I really enjoy the questions and the random trivia. However, I have to agree with other reviewers regarding getting stuck with no coins and ONLY option is to buy more. I know you want to make money on your app but most games allow you to view ads for coins, get coins for your time (what’s the point in getting hundreds of burgers/trophies/whatever if they don’t even mean anything?) I’ll be uninstalling this since I can’t keep progressing. Nice try.
Addicting!
by mhgrr on 2018/11/09 17:56
This is the best word game app available! It is challenging but if you take your time and have a pencil and paper to help you along, eventually you’ll complete the puzzle. But I’ve finished all of the available games! I spent some coins (I can’t remember but I think 150) to get two more games: Presidents I and Presidents II. Will there be more games available soon?

Better than average
by LaurenLBK on 2018/06/20 17:47
The programmers for this game actually used a dictionary and good English — not always true for this type of game. Hints are a reasonable cost, while the challenge of each level is high — also not always true. You learn interesting facts along the way. If you pay attention closely, you’ll often find solution clues in the information at each level. Fun, and worth your time.
Challenging Game for Word Lovers and Trivia Buffs
by Haogro on 2018/04/03 16:26
This is a well-designed game that covers a variety of topics that will challenge everyone. Information about topics is given as a reward (look for hints), which is an unusual twist to this addictive game. Starting and stopping is no problem, even though there is a timer. Various strategies can be used to stockpile coins for future hints, as needed.
Decent
by gingergabi on 2018/10/15 18:26
Game is fun and uses a themed puzzles to allow users to more easily solve individual words. Each puzzle is timed and if that time runs out you must redo the puzzle before you are able to proceed. One glaring issue with the time mechanic is that it is paired with a poor touch responsiveness. The timer will continue to count down for 15-20 seconds until the end of the game whereas the tiles may require a second between moves for the next to be selected. It’s infuriating to say the least and it needs to be adjusted.
Best word game
by Tim Ritter on 2019/10/12 06:22
Very enjoyable play and great for picking up curiosities while passing the time. Definitely some challenging parts. Update. I have enjoyed many levels. Until they came up with "World National Parks" 1 and 2. Love all the language and trivia of the other levels but these seem to be a clear ploy to get people to buy coins. Disappointed I may have to give up on the game. Not planning to play the daily game to buy the unlock on other levels. Crazy.
Almost..., but not quite
by 39nana on 2018/08/04 22:22
The game is excellent, except for the fact that it regularly has words that are completely obscure. So you’re left with having to guess at the solution. What’s the point? It’s challenging enough with words that are more well known. Wait. That probably is the point. Forces you to buy answers. Too bad! I would have given it five stars otherwise.
Fun puzzles
by Wordsgonewild on 2018/06/25 12:02
Love this game. The puzzles have a common theme to keep them interesting. The daily puzzle gives a daily clue that helps determine the theme and keeps the solve from being too frustrating. Good exercise in word recognition, like playing Wheel of Fortune word puzzles without the spins and giving turns to others on the guess work.

I really like the game. The trivia after each board is interesting. The only thing I would change with this game and what keeps me from rating this a five is that even after you buy a pack, it doesn’t move to the top of the list. Each time you play, you have to scroll and search for the pack you want to play.

I cannot say enough about this addictive game! I love it! It’s just that I finish all the new levels in one day and I have to wait for new levels for a whole week or more! I am sure it takes time to develop these levels but I eagerly await the new ones . Thank you for developing this wonderful app!

The puzzles are just challenging enough to keep you interested and not make you too frustrated. Coins are sometimes too hard to earn. More direction early on would have helped to know when and how to use. Just started daily puzzles and they seem fun as well. The hints in the beginning can be helpful without giving away too many clues
Addictive, fun and I also learn!

I have really enjoyed these puzzles and can’t get enough of them. I enjoy puzzling out the words without many hints and also learning new things. I am “curious” about how many puzzles there are? Do they stop after “ Toon Time.” I don’t seem to have access to any after that one.
Fun and Challenging

What I like about this game is I can just play and stop whenever. I don’t feel like I have to commit to a huge chunk of time to play so I can pop on just to do something for a few minutes or play for hours. I love the challenge, but hate when I’m stuck on a category I don’t really like. Also, takes forever to gain coins it seems.
Fun and educational

I’m hooked! I like the challenge of the crossword and I look forward to the factoids at the end of each puzzle. And the bonus cards keep me going when I need a hint. I even find myself researching more on a particular topic on the internet while I am trying to solve a puzzle.
Grrrrrrr

When i first saw this game, it was advertised in landscape mode. So it looked like a good game, so I downloaded it. Then I opened it just to find its in portrait mode only. i have to keep my Ipad plugged in or the battery gets depleted quickly. I can’t play anything in portrait mode because I would have to hold it in that mode and my Ipad is way to hard to hold. Why can’t you developers make it possible to play in either mode. I just delete all the games without even trying them when they are in portrait mode only.
My new favorite game

This honestly is such a great game! A combination puzzle and internet treasure hunt, looking for information that might help in completing each themed puzzle. Being rewarded with interesting facts, both trivial and important, is a terrific incentive to play! The range of topics is impressive. I eagerly await each new set of puzzles—please keep them coming!
Fun game

As game progresses it gets more challenging, to the point you may lose hope in solving. But fret not because all that is needed is to plug and chug through combinations of letters or read the clues and you’ll be on to solving puzzle! You’ll also learn interesting facts about places, things, people, etc. Excellent game overall!
Fun and educational!

Fun to play and learning things I never thought about in all my 74 years!😻 The only problem is my husband and I play this together and have reached the last level available - sure wish they would have new levels available daily🤗.
Thinking, thinking, remembering
by Emalexandria on 2018/09/29 01:26
Oh my, talk about making me think and I have to try so hard to remember stuff from long ago is NOT fun until the right answer pops into my head and then I get excited and can’t wait until the next challenging puzzle comes along. LOVING IT!!!!!!
Update glitch
by plkbk on 2019/01/10 07:34
I love this game and have been playing it for many months. But after the latest update it has developed a glitch. It crashes constantly. On every single move. And it did the auto update yesterday, so I’ll have to wait until the next update to play again. It’s too annoying dealing with the crashes after every move.
Love this!

Great fun when you know something about the topic, just gotta use those genius cards when you don’t. (Took me awhile to figure out that you get a free play of each new genius card.) The factoids at the end of each puzzle are often startling and worthy of a screenshot, me thinks.
Not what I expected
by AllAboutDogs on 2019/09/05 18:01
Imo, this game is misnamed. It’s more “subject genius.” My interest was to extend my vocabulary, but this game covers random names and subjects. It would help if it allowed the player to choose the subject or when to quit and choose a different one, but it forces the player to complete about 12+/- levels of games of a subject before it moves you to another one. You don’t get to choose the next subject, it’s given to you whether it’s one you enjoy or not. I’m not bored enough to put up with this.
Move over Words with Friends

I was looking for a game that entertained me, wasn’t full of ads, and had the perfect amount of challenge. This is it! It feels like trivia mixed with a crossword. I have deleted my other single player word games. Many thanks to the developers.
Word Genius Rocks!
by MountainMomma2 on 2018/07/18 16:24
Finally, a game that doesn’t drag me in then leave me feeling like I’ve just wasted hours of my life. Word Genius actually requires me to use, not only my collective acquired knowledge from nearly 60 years, but also my ability to think logically and to research. Kudos to the creators!
