Word War (Fun Online Game)

There's a really cool game online for elementary students called Word War. Each player gets a tank and tries to spell words from a set of 12 letters, each have a "damage" value. Once the word is formed, the tanks shoot the letters (as cannonballs), damaging your opponet's tank for the same value of the letters of the word. My kids love it. It's found at www.roomrecess.com/pages/WordWar.html

It's simple, but fun. I put it up on my Smartboard and had them play in teams (boys vs. girls). At least it encourages them to try and form bigger words.

Yeah, it's great for word work centers. My boys in class finally like working with words! (for now...)

Fun! I don't quite understand what the green "restore power" cannon means though. Is restoring power good for me or the opponent? And I wish the computer's word would show up and not just get shot out. But definitely a fun game, thanks for sharing.

I think the green ball restores your own power. Yeah, it would be nice to know what word the computer chose. I thought of that too, but I did notice the computer never uses the "extra" cannonballs.
