We currently do not offer a way to sort games by difficulty, but this is a feature we are exploring for a future release.
That said, many of our games have levels that vary in difficulty. Some increase in difficulty as the week goes along; others are random.
- Monday – 1 Star (easy)
- Tuesday – 1 Star
- Wednesday – 2 Stars
- Thursday – 3 Stars
- Friday – 4 Stars
- Saturday – 5 Stars
- Sunday – 5 Stars (hard)
Squared Away starts on Monday with one-star difficulty. By Sunday, though, you'll be faced with a four-star level.
The Modern Crossword is a mini grid on Monday and gradually increases in size throughout the week. By Saturday and Sunday, you're solving full-size 15x15 grids.
- For Switch Spots, you’ll be faced with bigger boards and more obstacles like blockers later in the week.
- For Caved, the board gets larger and there are more skulls to dodge.
NetWord's Saturday level is the "Saturday Stumper", the most difficult of the week where clues will often challenge your lateral thinking skills.
On Sundays, Jumble has six words to unscramble before the final Jumble, as opposed to the usual four.
Upwordly's difficulty varies throughout the week and is also rated by a star system. Difficulty is tied to how many letters each clue has, and how cryptic the clues are.
