Published on: 12th July 2022

5-Letter Wordlet taps into the trend for online word guessing games, which continue to captivate a new generation of players around the world. 

5-Letter WordletThis autumn, University Games is set to launch 5-Letter Wordlet, a confounding new word strategy board game.

5-Letter Wordlet will see the hugely popular single-player online trend brought into the home and enjoyed competitively with family and friends on games nights. The new multi-player game offers all the fun and puzzling challenge of popular word guessing games with the additional benefits of face to face interaction, inter-game competition and the camaraderie that playing board games fosters.

Mark Jones, sales director at University Games UK, commented: “Playing games online is quick and fun, but they are usually played in isolation. University Games is all about providing entertaining and inclusive games that bring family and friends together, to spend quality time having fun. 5-Letter Wordlet is certainly set to do that.”

Mark added: “5-Letter Wordlet has been created for players aged eight years and over. As word games are fun and addictive they are good for building players’ cognitive functions, making this a board game for all generations and a perfect Christmas present for the entire family.”

Retailers will be able to see the new game, along with University Games and Lagoon’s 700-strong product range of other games, puzzles and gifts, at Harrogate next month and at Autumn Fair in September.
