Play “Worms with Friends” on iOS

My mum doesn’t really play video games, but we managed to get her into Words With Friends. A large part of the appeal for her was the ability to play a word, go do something else, and check back later to see if the opponent has had their turn.

Worms Creator Returns to Team 17

Fans of the long-running Worms franchise may know that the studio behind the games, Team 17, has operated without the input of Andy Davidson, the series’ original creator, for the last fourteen years.
