There have been several new games added to the Kindle recently, some free and some paid, that are pretty fun. This post lists ten of the most popular Kindle games and puzzles, and this second page lists several more. It turns out that there are a lot more Kindle games and crosswords than I thought.

Triple Town (A Puzzle Strategy Game for Kindle) by Spry Fox
5 stars, 7 reviews
Triple Town is an original strategy game in which you try to grow the greatest possible city. The larger the city you build, the more points you score. You build your city by matching three or more game-pieces: combine three grasses to make a flower, three flowers to make a bush, three bushes to make a tree… until you’ve filled the board with houses, cathedrals and castles. Along the way, you’ll have to outwit evil barbarians and wizards who will try to block your progress.
This is a game that can be played for minutes or hours at a time. You’ll have to think several turns ahead if you want to avoid inevitable gridlock as unfinished buildings, barbarians and wizards start to pile up. And sometimes, if you’re lucky, you’ll be helped along by a magical crystal (which combines with anything) or a powerful bomb (which wipes nuisances off the board). But luck won’t save you forever!
How large can you grow your dream city before the board fills and the game ends?
Every Word (A Free Game for Kindle) by Amazon Digital Services
4 stars, 113 reviews
If you like word scrambles then Every Word is the game for you. Test your vocabulary as you try to find as many words from the scrambled letters in this fun and fast-paced word game.
You are given six or seven scrambled letters with the goal of finding as many words as you can. You score points by filling out the words in each empty spot on the board using only the letters that appear at the top of the game board. Keep at it until time runs out or until you fill up the board. The more words you make, the higher your score!
Your score is comprised of two components: first make a lot of words, second try to make the longest word possible. The best way to increase your score is to do both. Why? Because when you do, you earn the right to play a new level with a brand new set of letters. As long as you keep finding the longest word, you can move on to a new level and push your score higher and higher.
Shuffled Row (A Free Game for Kindle) by Amazon Digital Services
4 stars, 75 reviews
Can you keep up with Shuffled Row? See how many words you can make from 60 lettered tiles.
The tiles are added to your row one at a time so you’ll constantly be working with a new set of letters. After you submit a word, the letters you used will be removed and new ones will be added. Increase your score by using less common letters. Create longer words and increase your score even more.
If you don’t use the letters fast enough, they’ll disappear and new ones will take their place, so you’ll have to decide if you want to play it safe and use short words or try to wait for more letters to form longer words.
Test your vocabulary and how well you can think on your feet with Shuffled Row – try it today!
