Word Smoothie proves itself to be the nourishment dull parties need. A great party game for 4 to 14 players, Word Smoothie provides the fun every party or get-together needs to break the ice. Combining wordplay, acting skills, and even memory, Word Smoothie provides something for most everyone. The game consists of three rounds with two teams. First, players attempt to get their teammates to guess a specific word using descriptions, synonyms, related words, and even inside jokes. Next, using the same words from round 1, players act out the words for their teammates to once again guess. Finally, players must choose wisely a single word to get teammates to guess the secret word which they have heard twice already. Word Smoothie obviously borrows from great party games such as Charades, Password, and Catch Phrase, but presents it all in a fun, new, and engaging way. Users can create their own word lists, but this option requires a $0.99 purchase of the Build Your Own Words pack. Other packs such as Pop Culture and Collage Life are also available for a price. The free base game provides players with both the Word Smoothie Classic phrase pack and the Animal Kingdom pack. While the two free base packs are enough to get started, the words do become too familiar in time to remain fair and interesting, thus the app heavily encourages the purchase of the addition word packs. These optional in-app purchases are, however, a fair trade off for an ad free experience and $0.99 for the Build Your Own Words pack is money well spent. After all, other games cost quite a bit more and this one is free to try and cheap to purchase expansion packs. The graphics are professional and the navigation intuitive. Overall, Word Smoothie a fun party game that is well worth the free download and will likely prove worth the cost of the expansion packs.
Word Smoothie – The party app game you have been waiting for! The app Word Smoothie is a turn-based group game built for playing with friends. It is a fairly simple word-guessing game that you play in person as a group together! There are 3 separate rounds.
