Vocab Genii - Challenging Vocabulary Games

Vocab Genii is a new site offering challenging vocabulary games. The basic purpose of Vocab Genii is to offer games that require players to unscramble letters to create a word that matches the definition provided. Players can select the level of difficulty for each game that they play. I tried it out this morning and found that even some of the "easy" words were quite challenging. Vocab Genii can be played by registering directly on the site or connecting through your Facebook account.

Applications for Education
Vocab Genii could be a nice way for students to challenge themselves to test and expand their vocabularies. The option to connect to the game through Facebook makes it possible for students to start playing the games in a matter of seconds.
