Put Your Language Skills to The Test With Anagram Online Beta
Word games are as popular as the day is bright these days. Crossword puzzles, scrabble, hang-man, and many others have been people’s favorite means of entertainment during trips and long periods of waiting for a good part of the last half a century. Now, with the advent of gaming in our devices, these pastimes have gotten even more popular than before. However, one that you do not hear too often is a game of anagrams. For those of you not aware, anagrams are basically all the words than can be spelled from the letters of a single word. The thing about this game is that you must use all the letters of the original word or else it doesn’t count. Playing this is fun, and playing this against someone else and against time is even better. XDA member cubewalker has released Anagrams Online Beta, which basically will allow you to go head to head against someone else.
