Spell-Jam

Have you ever wished you could be in the National Spelling Bee in Washington DC?  Well, now you can (kinda) with Spell-Jam! This game, sponsored by Meriam Websters, is the non-genius’ way to rise to spelling glory, all from the comfort of your home computer.

Tournament is a chance to take place in an actual spelling bee, where you can compete against multiple competitors, including other people. Practice is self-explanatory; you practice spelling.

The gameplay is basically the same in every mode...
