Lovers of word games will be delighted to discover their passion comes in a free vari-

ety: Word Wanderer, available at www.wordwanderer.com for use on PCs and Macs.

The goal of the game, developed by Posit Science, a producer of brain fitness software programs, is for the user to place a total of 50 letter tiles on a board - a la Scrabble - in the shortest amount of time.

The game level changes depending on the player’s proficiency: The better a player does the more letter tiles he or she has to use; weaker players get fewer tiles.

“This adaptive component is critical to promote brain fitness and not routinely found in online word games,” according to a statement from Posit Science.

“Most puzzles and word games require quick thinking, a well-developed vocabulary and strong general language skills. Word Wanderer works to encourage the development of these very skills but with adaptive difficulty levels that encourage repeat usage,” the statement says.
