Text or Die
This trivia game is all the rage with Canadian players at the moment. You are asked a general knowledge question and have to think of the longest possible answer. The longer the answer, the taller your safety tower rises thus keeping you clear of the shark-infested water below. This is a fast and furious game that will put your texting and typing skills to the limit. The game developed by Full Fat Productions is available to try for free on iOS and Android operated devices as well as on your desktop.
Canadians love their word games. Although the hugely popular Wordle is still a big hit, once they get their daily fix, word lovers are now upping the ante and testing their skills playing Quordle. Whereas in Wordle you are given six attempts to figure out a five-letter word, in Quordle you have to guess four words in just nine attempts. It’s challenging but doable, and a great way to start your day over your favourite brew. Top tip: if you’re a night person please wait until later in the day and enjoy over your favourite nightcap. The app can be downloaded or the puzzle can be played straight from your device.
