"I was a pretty big Words With Friends player for a while…Word Derby seems like exactly the spicing up of that formula that I need." — Touch Arcade

"This will make for a fantastic family Christmas game." — Modojo — 4/5

Welcome to the world’s greatest mix of horse racing and word making! A multiplayer turn-based sprint to the finish line. 

Saddle up and challenge up to three friends to turn-based multiplayer races where your vocabulary is your best weapon. Up to four players can compete or go head-to-head to create the best possible words from a stash of letters. Power-ups and bonuses can turn the competition on its head, but nothing beats out an ace word-maker. Take it from the horse's mouth: With art based on classic horse derby games from carnival midways, Word Derby is an asynchronous game unlike any other. 

RACE TO THE FINISH
Choose your words wisely by picking letters that will earn you the most points. Earn time bonuses for making words quickly against the clock. Be the first to 200 points to win the race and earn the derby trophy.

STAR POWER
Stand out as you trot down the track by spending your hard-earned tickets on new jockeys such as Bella, the unicorn-riding princess; Arthur, the dragon-mounted black knight; and many more. 

NEED A BOOST?
Struggling to conjure up those precious high-scoring words? Fork out on power-ups that give your character a much-needed boost, remove locked letters, and even give hints that point you to the best words available.

FEELING LUCKY? 
Place bets on your rider to take the trophy home when racing against Random Opponents. Bet up to 200 tickets on each game & earn big!
