Words With Friends 2 is Zynga’s new hit in the making for the iOS and Android platforms. The original was one of the pillars of mobile gaming of early days, along with such games as Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja, and this brings back the original plus plenty of new challenges. You can play single-player or play in team modes to really test your skill. Read on for some tips and tricks for Words With Friends 2!
The main player-vs-player game is the same in every way as the one from the original Words with Friends, but with better graphics. The double letters, double words, triple words and triple letters are all in the same position, and you have the same amount of letters in your hand as you always have. So the play will be familiar there.
For the first time in Words with Friends history, now you get a single player mode. This happens in special events such as the literary series, where you play against a computer-controlled figure. They take 15-60 seconds to think of words, so the game goes far more quickly than it would against another player.
The fastest gameplay mode of all is the lightning round, where two teams of five square off against each other on five boards. Everybody plays live, and when you make a word or trade in letters, you switch to the next board to make a word there. Speed is key in this game, as is smart use of the double and triple letter and word scores.
Various events will present different challenges that can earn you prizes that you otherwise would have had to go to the store to purchase. These can include new frames for your profile image, as well as bonus coins and trinkets. Normally, you would have to go to the store and spend coins in order to collect these.
Another quick way to earn coins is to send invites to your friends and then play against them in the game. For a sure shot at inviting a friend who will take to the invite, find someone who previously played the old Words With Friends, and send the invite to them.
