What is HEXT?

Hext is a fast-paced word puzzle game that promotes a creative, relaxed, social setting in which adult English-language learners are encouraged to practice the language with dramatically reduced inhibitions. The gameplay revolves around players competing for the highest number of points by collecting letter tiles and forming words with their collection. Hext provides an inclusive environment, allowing every player a chance to contribute by drawing from their own unique set of experiences. Although players may initially discover Hext in a more formal setting, such as as a classroom or company event, they will be able to purchase a copy and play amongst friends and family. Hext will increase players’ confidence in speaking English out loud and using the language in relevant social and utilitarian settings.
