Word mine is a fun puzzle solving word game by Sensible Objects. It’s part of their Voice Originals line of games. Smart games for smart speakers!
Sensible Object, an award winning London-based game studio, introduces Word Mine, their newest gaming development in the line of Voice Originals games, which utilize the power of smart voice technology to create an unparalleled play experience. In Word Mine, people of planet Earth have used and discarded all their words, leaving them buried in the ground. Play Word Mine as an explorer on a mission to piece together the forgotten words of the world. You must master the mine by thinking fast and solving the anagrams to bring words back into the world!
Alexa will guide you through Word Mine and help you navigate the game as she looks out for your safety and helps you read the letters, but it’s up to you to solve the word puzzle in time before the mine collapses in on you. Every level uncovers new letters, and it’s up to you to use your lexical prowess to get to the bottom of the mine and collect coins for the words you create. Also, you can trade these coins for helpful items from the shopkeeper, to use on further expeditions in the future. The deeper you mine the harder the anagrams get, allowing you to test and expand your vocabulary while having fun.
To play Word Mine, activate the free Skill from the Alexa app and then say “Alexa, let’s play Word Mine.” Then, enjoy the game as followed:
● As you enter the mine, you are presented with a set of 3 letters, and asked to make a word that uses all 3 letters. The clock is ticking though, you have 90 seconds to crack the anagram!
● Get the word correct and you can head further into the mine. The deeper you go the harder the anagrams get. Keep digging until you are unable to make a new word.
● Run out of time and you trigger a collapse and have to leave the mine, but you get to keep all the words you found that day.
● After leaving the mine, you will meet a shopkeeper who needs the words you mine to help people use words all over the world. The shopkeeper will offer you a payment of coins in exchange for the words you have taken from the mine to help you in future mining exhibitions.
● Return tomorrow for a new word puzzle every day. Free to enable and play, Word Mine is available now on the Amazon Alexa store.

Zieke is learning his letter and spelling, so this was great for him. He was so tickled when he recognized the letters. Even if you have younger kids, you can solve the word and then they can repeat the word to Alexa. Fun for the whole family!
