Word lovers will get a thrill out of creating complex sentences with the limitations of available words. Sentences can be short and profound -- "wisdom teaches," which earns three points -- or longer and illogical -- "The sick athletes clumsily kiss cowardly metaphors," for 28 points. It's not clear how the scoring works, beyond longer sentences earning more points, and there's no way to review all the sentences created in a round. Players can see how a score compares with their highest scores and see their top-scoring sentence. The grammar grader isn't perfect, though, occasionally not recognizing homonyms that can be used as different parts of speech. A parent gate for social media sharing, sentence review, and varied word-connection options would take this inventive game even further.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
