Spellify - The New Magic Word Game

Wordle is a word game that took the internet by storm in 2021. The easy-to-play but hard-to-master word game brought us all in. Your social media feed was probably littered with those green and yellow boxes every time your friends shared their results. The internet loves an accessible and easy-to-understand word game, especially players of Magic: The Gathering. Several options have come along but none have mimicked one of the first word games we ever learned how to play: hangman.

Until now.

Spellify has come as Magic's first hangman style word game for everyone. Using a similar structure, players are able to guess the card displayed across Magic's history. If you ever wished you could play hangman with Magic cards, now's your chance.

Spellify Rules

The rules for good word games are simple and Spellify is just that. Every Magic player can play, whether you're new to the game or Pro Tour hall of famers.

There are four simple rules to Spellify:

  1. You guess the card name usings letters, numbers and symbols(like the tap symbol or mana symbols)
  2. If you guess a correct character, the letter shows up on the card and card name
  3. When you're ready, you can hit the "guess card," button to try and guess the complete name
  4. You only have 13 chances to guess the name counting letters and your final card name guess

The keyboard for Spellify is a little different due to the unique needs of a Magic word game. You'll see your regular alphabet offered along with your symbols and numbers under a special character keyboard offering everything you'll need for every Magic card.

However you think you'll guess the card, Spellify has a way for you to plug it in. Even if the card happens to be a compleated planeswalker with regular and Phyrexian mana symbols, you have everything you need to get guessing with this Magic-based word puzzle.
