Here’s a few things that we considered while choosing games for this collection:
a. Age no bar – You can never be too old or too young for any of these games!

c. Quick and easy gameplay
Please note that the list doesn’t follow any preferential order!
Wordament is a Boggle-styled word game where you have to create words from a 4×4 grid of letters. Game play consists of two minute rounds and you compete against other players (who are tackling the same puzzle) to see who can score the highest. Every board is guaranteed to have over 100 possible words and is great for short spurts or marathon sessions.
ALERT : Wordament is a highly addictive game that you’ll catch yourself saying “one more game and I’m done” repeatedly.
Wordament started out life on the Windows Phone Store as an independent title. Then Microsoft extended the invitation to have the word puzzle game become an Xbox Live title.Wordament was always a popular game but with the Xbox Live branding, it only became more popular. The game has gone multiplatform now and is also playable via HTML5-enabled web browsers.
Wordament is a free, ad supported game that you can find here at the Windows Phone Store.
AlphaJax is an online, turn based game of scrabble that is feature rich, fun to play, and just an overall nice game for your Windows Phone. You can challenge your friends to a game, let AlphaJax tap a similarly ranked opponent for you or you can Tweet out a challenge. The game itself is pretty much a straight forward game of scrabble where you have to build words from existing words on the game board using a selection of letter tiles. The game ends when all the tiles are exhausted and the winner is the player with the most points. You can take screen shots of the game, chat with your opponent, and battle for top ranking in the various leaderboards.
AlphaJax is one of the most occupying Xbox WP games I’ve played and well worth your time.
AlphaJax works great on WP7 and WP8. Get it here on the Windows Phone Store.
Flowerz is a nice little puzzle game in which you plant beautiful flowerz, set up matches and cascades, and keep planning ahead to make your garden flourish round after round. Make your matches at a leisurely pace or strategize your placements for higher scores.
The game is played and controlled by placing flowers that randomly appear from a list onto a field, and trying to get 3 or more flowers lined up horizontally and vertically to score points. To keep the gameplay interesting, they also have some flowers that change into other flower colors after being combined, and they have butterfly pieces which can change the color of a single flower, and some other gameplay changers. Those do make the logic of the game a lot more fun and challenging. There is also an Expert mode in addition to the Standard mode.
“The game keeps you on your toes. The further you get in the game, the more you have to think ahead about placement. Great time passer!”
