How to play StringleStringle is a fun new interactive word game by Michael Daniels (based on the word game Ghost) that tests and improves your vocabulary and strategic ability. It's great brain training!
The game starts with a randomly selected letter. Extra letters are then added one at a time, in turn, by each player until a word is completed. Whoever completes a word of more than 2 letters is the LOSER.
Each added letter must allow the string of letters to be continued to form a valid English word. You will not be allowed to add an invalid letter.
On each player's FIRST MOVE ONLY the new letter may, optionally, be added as a new initial rather than at the end of the string. Once the string is three letters in length, the initial letter is locked and new letters may only be added at the end of the string.
To win the game, you have to AVOID COMPLETING A WORD while at the same time trying to force the computer to complete a word.
It's as simple as that!
If you get stuck, or want some help choosing a letter, click the Hint button to show all possible valid letters.
