About Spelling Games

What is the most popular spelling game?

The most popular spelling game on our site by far is Hangman. This game forces players to use their imagination and critical thinking skills to try and solve the mystery word that is given to them.

Another great game to help you learn to spell is Word Race. In Word Race, players are given a grid of letters that they must try and make words out of. The longer the word, the more points that they are awarded.

What really makes this game interesting is that students are competing against another player who is given the same grid of letters. When one player uses a letter, the other player is no longer allowed to use that same letter. This forces players to think quickly on their feet if they want to win.

What kinds of spelling games are there?

There are all kinds of different spelling game subgenres on our playlist. Misspelled is a great combination of a spelling game and a platformer game. Unolingo is a great puzzle game to teach spelling, and Candy Word is a great mash-up of a spelling game and a Match 3 game.

This large variety of genres makes it very easy for gamers of all interests to get involved in our Coolmath spelling games.
