Microsoft Word Twister is an online game that is free to play. Once you visit the place where you can play Word Twister, you need only hit the “play” button to get things started. This will cause the load screen to come up, and then you have to hit “play now” to begin. There are a few other games on the next screen, but the Word Twister option is in the top right. The game then shows you the game board that you are going to be playing on. It shows a path through a garden with circles along that path. You'll see that the first circle is labeled number 1.
If you click on it, you'll see your objectives for the board which includes collecting purple words, blue words, and a bonus twister option. The game will then walk you through what to do. The basic premise of this game is to rearrange the tiles with letters on them to find words from the shown list.
From here, all you have to do is keep arranging letters from your tray to find words from the lists. So, all you have to do is take letters from your tray and put them into the 5 spaces above the tray. Then, you hit the “Check” button next to it to see if your idea matches with one of the words from the list.
One of the words will unlock the bonus twister game which takes you into a new mini-game. In the mini-game, you have to find a word using every letter that you have. There's usually only one word that matches all of the letters on the board. It may just take you a minute to figure out what that word is. After you figure it out, it will take you back to the board you were working on previously so that you can complete it and then go on to the next word twister online game board. You can then climb from one board to another until you get through all of the boards that are available on the game.
