Word Tubes
25th March 2019  
Added the "backwards" word game, Word Tubes.
A new game has appeared in the Shoebox.
..Not sure how well this one will go down!

You can Play Shoebox of Games here. You'll find Word Tubes amongst the Word games.


You have 5 tubes, and must place letters from your "Rack" into the tubes. (You can grab any of the 5 letters from the Rack tube!)

The letters drop from the top down to the bottom, and must spell out a 5-letter word, reading top to bottom, so in essence, you're actually building the words backwards.
It can be quite tricky to get to grips with, and you'll need an awful lot of forward planning to get a decent score.

Once a tube is full, it'll either score, vanish, and you'll get points.. Or if the word isn't a proper word, you get no points, and the tube is blocked out for the remainder of the game.

Once all tubes are blocked, it's game over.

There's no time limit, so take your time and think moves through before you make them.
Also, do keep in mind that the words are being built backwards. Many times I've popped in a word like "LETAR" instead of "LATER" because.. Well, it can get quite confusing at times!!

Anyhoo, give it a try and let me know how you get on.
Good Luck!

You can Play Shoebox of Games here. Word Tubes is, of course, in the Word Games section.
