Another novel word game awaits you on Wordgames.com when you play Words in Ladder. Like other word games, the aim of Words in Ladder is to have fun with your vocabulary, and in Words in Ladder you do this by linking together the letters on the screen. But what makes Words in Ladder different from other word games is the fact that more strategy is involved than what you might otherwise expect from these types of games. Here, you have to create by using the word that is on the table as the base for new ones. And you can only add a letter, drop a letter, or rearrange the letters in the word on the screen if you want to create a valid word. This also means you have to be careful and exhaust all possible word combinations, before you change the structure in a way that is too dramatic.

By combining the rules of other classic word games with this new idea of using the current word as your base for new ones, Words in Ladder offers new challenges to players who enjoy word games. Besides testing your vocabulary, you also have a timer that constantly ticks down, and you have to find as many words as you can before it reaches zero. This way you also get a shot at learning new words, and you get a new selection of letters that you can try and match. Also, you will receive a score after each word you create, and that is given depending on the number of letters this word has. Another scoring factor is what type of operation you have used to form this word.
