HAPPY SUMMER! Text 714-654-4308 or reply to this email. Our games are fun and challenging. Try your best to extend a short word that can be morphed into a longer and pleasantly rewarding word. Keep an open and receptive mind. Finding WORDS matter more; high scores will follow.
The instant reward for finding 12- to 13-letter words is now worth $30. The last winners of this pot were: Pat Reed, Najat Reikes, Gretchen Cowan, Bill Lapinski, and Nancy Douglas. The pot for a word with 14 to 15+ letters now has $355. Play the assigned categories—to qualify for an instant reward, the word must contain 5 letters. The prize for winning 3 games is $15.
