Press Release: TAG! Now In Open Beta..

Shrewsbury, MA – Word wizards of the world rejoice. All inPlay has announced that its fourth title, Tag-The Anagram Game, is now in open beta and playable free at for a limited time. With Tag, All inPlay has broadened its appeal by cracking yet another genre in accessible online multiplayer games.

“Over the years, we got a lot of requests to make some sort of word game that was also multiplayer,” remarked All inPlay co-Founder Paul Silva. “Tag is a great example of how you can take a simple game and transform it into an online experience that can be enjoyed by anyone, blind or sighted, whether you love word games or not.” Tag expands on the basic anagram game by allowing up to 8 players per table to compete in short rounds of play. Unlike All inPlay’s prior titles, Tag is real-time, meaning players don’t take turns. Once the round begins, everyone at the table is frantically typing as many words as they can before time runs out and the winner is announced. Then the process starts all over again with a new phrase, keeping things fresh and interesting.

On social tables, rounds last longer and players have more time to chat between rounds, while Fast tables offer shorter rounds with shorter breaks, making for a finger tapping experience that doesn’t let up. Three difficulty levels let players of all types find a table that’s right for them. Multiple scoreboards allow for many avenues of competition beyond simple scoring.

“We wanted to create a game that was much more exciting than a simple anagram game,” said All inPlay co-founder Jeremie Spitzer. “We weren’t sure whether we succeeded until we got the first feedback from our testers, who told us they were getting themselves in trouble by playing at work. At that point we knew we were on to something.”

Anyone can play for free during the open beta period and newcomers to All inPlay can try the three existing games free for fifteen days in addition to the open beta. To get started, browse to:
