1. Overview

CFB Word Games is a group of three Microsoft Windows word games that will appeal to crossword enthusiasts and anybody who enjoys the challenge of word puzzles. The games are CFB WordJubblerCFB MasterWord and CFB SpotWord. Each game has several levels. As each level increases in difficulty your score increases but you are always racing against the clock! If you finish more quickly you will get a higher score.

CFB WordJubbler

The object of the game is to make words from random sets of letters chosen by the computer. You don't have to use all the letters, but you get higher scores for longer words. The first level starts with four letters. Once you have made 3 words you advance to the next level and get an extra letter to use. The game is over when you have made three correct words from sets of eight letters.

CFB MasterWord

The object of the game is to guess a four-letter word selected by the computer with as few tries as possible. For each guess MasterWord shows how many letters you have guessed correctly and how many others are right but in the wrong position. There are three different levels - the harder the level, the higher is your potential score.

CFB SpotWord

The object of the game is to find as many words as you can using the nine letters displayed.  Each game starts with a new set of letters with one of the letters in the 'spotlight'. Each word must contain the central highlighted letter and scores a number of points based on the number of letters used.

Each puzzle has three levels based on the number of words that the computer has calculated it is possible to guess from the letters given. You score additional bonus points when you reach a new level. The game ends when you have reached level three or if you decide to give up and start a new game.
