What's New*Bug fixes
App DescriptionAfter a hard day of work at the lumber yard, the Beaver Brothers, Bo, Bob, and Bubba, walked to their home in the pond near Beaver Dam. However, when they reached their home, they found that it had been washed away by the nearby waterfall. With winter only a few months away, the beaver brothers must rebuild their home using only the correct materials. Help them by spelling words made out of water, wood, and leaves before the materials wash away in the waterfall, too!

Random letters which come floating down a waterfall need to be connected to form words before time runs out. The face of each letter tile shows a value from 1 to 10, based on which your score is decided. Every word spelled correctly earns you points.
