Where the 'P-E-N' isn't mightier than the 'S-W-O-R-D'

Genre: Multiplayer, Word game
Each game of SpellBounders
is quite literally a battle of words.
We can boil its premise down to one simple sentence: multiplayer Scrabble
with fantasy RPG trappings.
Of course, Spellwood
came up with a similar idea about a year and a half ago, but InsaneRoot's effort is still well worth a look.
Unlike Three Rings Design's take on the king of word games, SpellBounders
isn't playing for laughs, and it doesn't pander to those who want a nice gentle tutorial mode or even a single-player campaign.
SpellBounders tinkers with the Scrabble template with mixed results, but it's never less than a thoroughly entertaining multiplayer word game
