"Word Ace combines two game ideas that are so compatible, it's a wonder someone didn't come up with it sooner. Specifically, Word Ace combines Scrabble and Texas hold 'em, and the result is an astonishingly fun game. The core gameplay focuses on forming words out of letters--the primary appeal for Scrabble fans--but the betting portion of the game will make hopeless junkies of gamblers as well." -gamespot

"Similar to Quiddler, (Word Ace) boils Scrabble's bones for stock - but adds Texas Hold 'Em instead of Rummy, replacing the lid and going to "low" for a long simmer."
- Tycho, Penny Arcade
5/5 - "Word Ace is a great game that can easily eat away hours of your free time if you're not careful. The unique hybrid brings out the best in both Texas Hold Em’ poker and word games and is just plain fun."
