My New Summer Travel Aid/Addiction: SpellTower

by Emily Hsieh (S.F.)

Though I’d hardly call myself a gamer (the last real video game I played was Ms. Pac-Man in an arcade—and I had braces), I’ve become newly and deeply obsessed with the mobile game SpellTower. A hybrid of word search, crossword puzzles and Scrabble, it’s a word game that’s easy to pick up and incredibly addictive (like stay-up-until-all-hours-telling-yourself-just-one-more-game addictive). It’s also a great way to pass the time on long road trips, plane rides or lazy beach days.
