So what if you don't know jack? As long as you know words - and how to spell them - you'll do fine in Jackbox Games' new puzzler, Word Puttz. The free-to-play game, now available on iOS and Android, puts a spin on classic word games such as Scrabble and Words With Friends by having players place letter tiles not on a board, but a mini-golf course.
Think of your words as both a way to score points and the route your ball will travel. You want to make good, high-value words, but also need to eventually wind up at the hole. Obstacles, pre-placed words and races against the AI add variety to the game's four courses, which feature more than 70 levels total.
Oh yeah, and the in-game host is an octopus. Because reasons.
