Award of Excellence. "Word Monaco solitaire is a novel
twist on a familiar card game, which results in a truly novel game.
It can range from simple to impossibly difficult depending on user
defined settings. At $9.95, Word Monaco doesn't break the bank
(or should that be Casino?). If you enjoy word games, give the demo
2006 Gadgetnutz "Word Monaco, from Smart Box Design is a worthy choice for addition to your Game Library. If you like Solitaire and you like Word Games – this is a good combination of the two. I think the replay value of this game is quite high. It is easy to learn and
tough to master – which is great for this kind of game. It is challenging and fun. Final Grade: A-"
2006 PalmAddict "Word Monaco has three different mini-games that add special cards and minimum word lengths in order to make the game more challenging. Furthermore, there are easy, medium and hard decks of cards, resulting in essentially 9 different difficulty levels. So Word Monaco can provide you with a couple minutes distraction or a real brain-buster, or anywhere in between. And the cross-genre style makes it appealing for the solitaire junkie and the word-game wiz alike. Word Monaco is an excellent addition to Smart Box Design's stable of terrific games."
