There's a small avalanche of word games for smartphones and tablets that borrows heavily from the Scrabble template, but none quite as good as "Letterpress." Instead of trying to outscore your opponent with high value tiles a la "Words with Friends," you must outsmart your opponent by stealing letters on the board and changing them to your color. It's more like chess than a typical word game; most vocab lovers become addicted after a couple games. Just don't tell Alec Baldwin.
