CriteriaRankScore*Raw Score

Ranked from 28 ratings. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

How does your game fit the theme?
Words are just joined up letters, the letters themselves are infinitely reconfigurable. My game is about playing with the emergent and surprising complexity that comes from joining together these simple building blocks.

Such a simple idea, executed very very well. I could play this for hours; there’s nothing quite like the rush of spelling “Juxtapositions” and “Mezzanines” back-to-back.

My favorite game from this jam so far

Word buy price next to the sell price would have been nice



It took a while to get the hang of it but once I figured it out, it is a cool concept. I really struggled to think of words that were longer than four letters!


I don't say this quite often, but this is one of my favorite games in this jam so far. It doesn't seem much from a first glance, but it's a very strong, well thought improvisational game that any fan of word-based games would love.
I started a bit slow on it while I got the hang of the mechanics, barely breaking even and getting clutters of letters I couldn't use. But then I started paying attention and saw that letters like Z and X were the money makers. Texas, Zen, Axis, that's where the dough was at!

After a while, with enough money to spare, I ended up trying to hoard enough letters to make the longest words possible, and it always felt satisfying to wait for words with the letters that you needed to appear and buy them. I was enthralled by this one.

This is a gold example of why I like game jams so much. To the point, using the theme in a creative fashion, running with a simple idea and making the most of it. I'm very stingy with my ratings, yet this one deserves all of my stars and praise! 👍


Well made, very witty and a great approach to the theme


Very original concept and incredible presentation! Good job!


What a great idea! Had me sinking in lots of time and I didn't want to stop!


It's like a typing games meets wheel of fortune! But also having the vibe of like a code breaker stock exchange mashup?! This is all to say that your game was hella cool and I spent way more time than I initially thought just using my wordsmithing to turn a profit! Very cool and very fun! Loved this! I'd like to buy a vowel!


This was amazingly fun. Heck, I can see myself get lost in this game. There was a steep learning curve, and I love how you interpreted the theme. I would love to play this on mobile
