It's been a busy year for word games. We've seen asynchronous multiplayer battlers aplenty, games that mash together genres to create something new and interesting, and a number of twists on the increasingly well-worn Scrabble formula.
It seems fitting that at the end of the year something has come along that squishes those three strands together into an entertaining and engaging package.
The game in question is Spellwood, and more than just tying together the threads of a blossoming genre it adds a bit of magic as well.
You play an aspiring word magician who's just about to come to the end of his training. You're also a rabbit for some reason. The first few battles work you through the basic mechanics.
A charming twist on the Scrabble formula with more than enough content to keep you playing into the new year, Spellwood is well worth the investment
