A kibitzer in Yiddish is someone who gives unwelcome advice during a game. My mom taught me as a young gamer that kibitzing takes away the joy of victory for others.
Pariguayo is Dominican slang for someone who is a wallflower at a dance party. A “party watcher.” My dad taught me as a young fella that being a pariguayo meant not being a part of the celebration.
I enjoy creating games that require intense deliberation, but that also evoke a wide sense of community for those who play the game. I like to encourage folks to show off their skills with those they love – while still never sharing the golden secret to their victory!
Smixed is the only popular free word game that allows the player the autonomy to play according to their gaming style. Take the entire day to maximize your average score. Dash swiftly if you value epic speed. Regardless of approach, the ultimate goal lies in the coveted mission for all: Get. The. Smax.
Nothing makes me happier than seeing players share their scores. So please, keep sharing with friends. Share with family. Play before or after you Wordle. Dance at the party. Never kibitz. Go for the Smax.
