Word Captain is similar to the Spelling Bee word game popularized by the New York Times. The goal is to make as many words as possible. Each word must be at least 4 letters long and contain the center letter. Only the 7 given letters may be used. If you make a word that uses all 7 letters, it's called a "Heptagram" worth an extra 7 points. See sample games below.

Word Captain has several nice features and  options.

  • Playable in seven different languages: Danish, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Swedish.
  • Click on a word, either on the main screen or the Answers, to see a definition of that word
  • Answers always just a click away . . . if you want to peek :)
  • Timer - if you're so inclined
  • History of all the games you've played
  • Two different scoring methods
  • Unlimited number of games
  • Ability to enter specific letters for a game. The first letter is the center letter.
