The Wordament Tournament is now live at the Bellevue, WA Microsoft Store

Wordament Tournament

The popular word game Wordament went to full Xbox LIVE status this week and in our previous story on the brain straining game we mentioned how Microsoft would be promoting the app with a Wordament Tournament.

Happening right now at the Bellevue, WA Microsoft store, there's quite a crowd there evidently getting into the game. With food, giveaways and prizes (no human sacrifices though), it looks to be a fun time and a great celebration for a unique Windows Phone experience.

If you're there, send us some more pics and we'll throw 'em in this post. Also leave some comments based on what you've experienced . Pick up the free game here in the Marketplace, if you haven't already.

Update: "Here is a picture of WicketEwok in the left and DiscoPigeon on the right, two of the top players going head to head."  Thanks, Dustin S., for the photos!

aw man, i live just above the border. sucks to live so close but not close enough

purevibz says:

That's why there's over 900 people per round :-)

columnbreak says:

It was lots of fun. Great energy, too. I was in line right outside the entrance and at least three people asked "What's going on?" and the folks in line all gave wonderful explanations, mentioning Wordament and Windows Phone. I lost in the first round but got a t-shirt, frisbee, and some good snacks. :D

bzibricky says:

Is there any chance of the Wordament tournament traveling to other MS stores?  Specifically Oakbrok IL?  I hope so because it's just about my favorite game ever.

EJNelly says:

Dear Microsoft,
Please bring one of your stores with thos to Roseville, California.

Me and the girlfriend r going through battles with the games..

kidjenius says:

is that a kid on the right...

Dusteater says:

Yes, I was quite surprised, but saw it with my own eyes. He is a master, and also uses the thumb method.

valapsp says:

This game is damn hard. (Of course for those that English is not their native language.)

jdep1 says:

Love the game. Addictive!

mythos13 says:

Wow, so DiscoPigeon is a kid! He's amazing.

gtbuzz says:

Wow. I wouldn't have thunk it. I consistently see him at the top of the leaderboards. Congrats to him, but makes me feel bad about myself!

TheDarKnight says:

This game is addiction it self!

ahabenezer says:

I love this game! I wish they'd give an option to purchase it for $.99 and get rid of the ads. 

ChanceW says:

That kid is one of the top players?! Now if that doesn't make me feel like an idiot that failed English, I don't know what would.

Is wordnament exclusive to wp7s???

Yes. And Windows 8 soon.
