Expand your vocabulary!
Knoword is a quick thinking game that helps boost vocabulary, spelling, speed of thought, as well as increasing analytical, observational and typing skills. When you begin, you will be greeted with a single letter. Underneath will be a dictionary definition to a word, which will begin with the letter in the box. Fill in the rest of the word and be rewarded with points and extra time. The object of the game is to complete as many words as possible. All the definitions are randomly generated and if at any time you get stuck, you can simply click “skip” to receive a new word.
